More About Café Phipps @ Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Café Phipps offers a variety of dishes that awaken the senses with colorful presentations, complex aromas and fresh flavors. Dine in or grab a snack to go, and walk away feeling refreshed.

In 2009 we eliminated bottled water from our entire facility. Phipps provides drinking water that has been filtered on site. We also offer reusable water bottles for purchase.

Since 2006 all our china and silverware has been washable and reusable, which eliminates the energy, material and water resources necessary to produce and haul disposable serviceware. Our cups are made from compostable, vegetable-based starches, and our napkins are made of 100-percent unbleached recycled paper.

We provide compostable containers and serviceware for takeout orders.

We compost all pre- and post-consumer organic waste from our café and more than 90 percent of the products used in our café are compostable.
