The ‘Gardeners Choice’ Coffee Shop was opened in July 1995 as part of an extension to the Garden Centre at our Scarborough site and has proved popular with our customers ever since.

We serve a variety of hot and cold snacks from bacon rolls to our delicious home-made scones which are freshly baked every day, or why not choose a more substantial home-cooked meal from our daily specials board. In addition, we offer Afternoon Tea. We also offer a selection of vegetarian options, and products made from non-gluten containing ingredients.

Gardener’s Choice is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4.30pm and Sunday’s 10.00am to 4.00pm. Breakfasts are served up until 11am, with lunches being served from 11.30am to 2.30pm daily. Afternoon Tea is available between 2.30pm and 4.00pm.

We also serve a selection of speciality teas and coffees as well as a selection of cold beverages. Our coffee is made with Puro, a blend of coffees which are ethically traded with Fair Trade Certification and a percentage of the profit from every cup we sell is donated to the World Land Trust.
