Garden Café

The Garden Café, is located on the Garden Level of the D.D. and Velma Davis Education & Visitor Center, at Fellows Riverside Gardens. This is a glass-walled room with a soaring ceiling. This unique space is surrounded by a lovely outdoor terrace, highlighted by spectacular views of Lake Glacier. The Café is available for evening rentals only, as it is open for lunch to the public every day the Davis Center is open.

The Café can comfortably accommodate up to 48 people at the tables and banquettes. In good weather, the outdoor terrace is also available for seating. The Café is a popular spot for cocktail hour prior to receptions in the Rossi Auditorium, graduation parties, business mixers and cocktail parties. Sit-down type dinners are not appropriate due to the floor plan of the space.

A Mill Creek MetroParks police officer and custodian will be present during the event. There is adequate parking for your event.  Alcohol is permitted when served by a bartender hired through Inspired Catering by Kravitz. Cash bars are not permitted with the exception of non-profit organizations that acquire a temporary permit from the State of Ohio.

Thanks to the generosity of the J. Ford Crandall Foundation, the public can enjoy this room in the D.D. and Velma Davis Education & Visitor Center year-round.
