Fun, local garden to visit. They managed to pack a lot into not a lot of space. Especially liked the succulents tucked into the stairway. Nice cafe. more »

A little gem right in the middle of Corona del Mar! A couple of hours spent enjoying the beautiful sights and smells. The variety is wonderful. Biggest roses I've ever seen. Captured great photos.
The garden is not big but well worth for an afternoon stay in any season, b'cause you find yourself in peace and relaxation, the garden so quiet and colorful. Everything of the garden are artistically arranged and landscaped. Another highlight is the 4-course brunch, which is served right beside the garden courtyard, in a slow French rhythm of two and a half hours. The tea-time garden is also a lovely piece of cake, I could even hear the honey bees singing when I was laying myself back in the comfortable outdoor coach. Wish they open for longer hours in the late afternoon, it must be beautiful to see sunset flashing across the bush and roses.
I planned on a day enjoying the garden and some food. Admission is $5 but parking is free (be sure to park in the free lots provided or the 1 hour limit is strictly enforced). There aren't signs so look for the gift shop as it is next to it. The guy who took my order was helpful and patient as I made my selection and then brought my food out to me. I ordered the chicken, mushroom, and cheese crepe and a lemonade. The crepe came with a carrot coleslaw with some good seasoning! It was a nice view as I enjoyed my meal. I will definitely return in the spring when more flowers are blooming!
Great little gem on PCH, really beautiful gardens!
My lovely wife brought me here and I was taken aback how beautiful it was. It is a small place but every inch of this botanical is worth each step. Spend an afternoon here and then take in a meal at one of the excellent restaurant in CDM.
