Our philosophy

We work hard to provide our guests with the same level of quality and experience that has made the Nursery a Portland destination for more than 30 years. In the Cafe, it all starts with an emphasis on fresh, local ingredients that change with the seasons.

We smoke, cure, and grill our own meats, grow our own microgreens, source our other produce from local farms, and go out of our way to source the very best ingredients for all of our food and beverages.


Frequently Asked Cafe Questions

Ordering  During the week, all food and drink orders are taken at the espresso bar. If you're ordering food, we'll give you a number on an adorable seed packet to take to your table so we know where to bring your delicious meal. 

Weekend brunch service is seated and orders can be taken at the table. The espresso bar and pastries are still available for both seated diners and walk-up orders.

Reservations  We are able to provide the very best service and quickest seating to all our guests by seating guests in the order they arrive. Plus, with our text message waitlist used during our seated weekend brunch, you have the opportunity to casually stroll around the gardens and nursery until your table is ready.

Food Allergies  Because we make almost everything from scratch with fresh ingredients, we're able to make accommodations for most dietary restrictions including dairy, wheat, and nuts. Please let us know about any allergies when placing your order.
