George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens - Review
Cyclone Tracy was a dark time in the history of Darwin city. Among the many lives and landmarks it claimed, one such casualty was the George Brown Botanic Gardens. Named after their most beloved curator, the 92 acre botanical land is rife with vegetation of the Top End area. Vine forests, boabs, mangroves and native and exotic palms are just some of the flora you’ll come across here. Self guided tour maps and bird watching guides are available at the visitors’ centre.

George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens, Darwin Reviews
Location is really lovely, but the cafe itself needs a bit of love. Maybe some decorations and some fittings to hide all the imperfections of the old place and just make it neat and tidy. "Old" doesn't need to be rundown... We visited the place on a Saturday around noon time and there were still few free tables. Staff seemed to be buzzing around, yet poor service was provided: we sat at a table that wasn't cleaned of plates and cups & glasses after previous clients had been long gone (it seemed that all free tables were presented the same at the time we arrived), we had to wait 50 minutes for food to arrive (Eva's Benedict and an omelette), I went to grab a glass of water from the big jar to only get some warm water that was left on the bottom of the jar, and I was really disappointed to see that sourdough bread for Eva's Botanic Garden's Cafe is actually the common white bread from supermarket. First and last time I visited this place.
I love this little cafe! Excellent coffee they have the right blend & know how to use it :-) Interesting place the building has a history. It was a church and sheltered people in tough times. The building has seen a few cyclones & standing strong. I like the deck, outdoor area the shady trees are beautiful. They do you a kids play area on the other side of the building offering shade & toys for the kids. Importantly the food it good. If you are ready to get out of the sun and enjoy great coffee & food head to Eva's Cafe.
It’s a pretty good cafe and a great location to stop, especially for those with kids or walking a dog. It has a large front play area with second hand toys and a spare bowl available for my dog to drink. Interior has a nice old tea house look and the large exterior patio is done up more nicely than the front kids area. Falls short of 5 stars because honestly it doesn’t have top tier food and service, especially if your from a bigger city. I’ve never seen another customer that excited with their food, the coffee is good not great, and the staff sometimes look out of their depth when there aren’t really many customers. Still I go there nearly every weekend so I like it really.
One star for lovely location. We had to wait 50 minutes for two omelettes. During this time nobody bothered to clean our table. I actually had to ask the staff to do that. The place was not even half full so I see no reason for this situation. The food was insipid and serving was offhand.
What a little gem this place is. Between the three of us we had a kimchi omelette, ham breakfast board and poached eggs tomato and thick cut belly bacon. Generous servings, fairly priced, and really nice. Very happy, and would definitely come back.
