Lower Hutt: Orange Blue Cafe (Review) at California Garden Centre

with one comment

During this last weekend I visited the California Garden Centre in Fairfield Lower Hutt.  Time to bring some life into those gardens now that the rain has stopped.

The selection of items in this place will please all from the avid gardener – to those looking for a gift for the hard to buy for person.  I was taken by surprise at the range of goods they have in store to make your home a festive NZ Christmas delight.  They range from a fully decorated Pohutokawa tree to glistening Korus to replace the traditional Northern Hemisphere decorations.  A delight to the Kiwi eye.

After all that gazing and selecting of goodies – I needed a refreshment before venturing out into the wonderful weekend sunshine.  At the rear of the store is The Blue Orange Cafe – new name and new ownership.  Alongside a tree decorated to reflect the name.  
A good selection of cabinet food and blackboard menu.  Food was tasty and plentiful.  Service was willing but a bit slow on the delivery.  Need to smarten up that part, but otherwise a cheery open place to stop off at – also has a play area for the kids and outside seating.
