I love Garden in the Woods, the botanical/wildflower garden and education center in north Framingham. It's a lovely natural oasis amidst a suburban neighborhood, but I can't help thinking about how it might be an even more appealing destination to stay at longer if there was a place to sit, eat, drink and relax. A little cafe could make it a place to spend more of the day before or after strolling/hiking through the garden, or attending programs/classes.
Update: Check out the comments! It seems that the Garden is rolling out some food service, with snacks, drinks and picnic tables. Great news! Thanks to Nicola Cataldo from the New England Wildflower Society for letting us know.
The botanical garden in Geneva, Switzerland has a lovely cafe where you can buy food and drinks -- including wine and beer, since Europeans don't have that hysterical puritanical streak we do when it comes to having a glass of wine with lunch. Of course, they also have a lot more public transportation, meaning everyone doesn't have to drive everywhere. It's probably unlikely that Garden in the Woods would ever get into the beer & wine serving business, which is too bad. But even a little place to sit out and have coffee, tea or soda and some prepared sandwiches would be a fun addition to time spent at the Garden.
