The Eatery at the Arboretum

Looking into the Eatery at the Arb


  • Enter the Oswald Visitor Center.
  • Pass through the Great Hall to the staircase or elevator (elevator located at the far end of the Reedy Gallery).
  • Take the staircase or elevator to the 2nd floor.
  • Turn left (east) at the top of the staircase (or turn right as you exit the elevator).
  • Entrance to the Eatery is on your right.

A chef-curated, cuisine-centered space, The Eatery at the Arboretum provides breakfast and lunch from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. daily — plus brunch items from 9 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sundays — to Arboretum visitors. With a focus on flavorful, whole ingredients, our menu features a variety of soups, hot entrees, sandwiches, salads, desserts and specialty culinary creations. 

Enjoy your food and drinks at the tables near the Eatery or outside on the Newton Terrace (open seasonally). If you’re looking for a delicious meal in a beautiful setting or just a cup of freshly brewed coffee with a pastry, pie or donut on the side, stop into the Eatery.

If you’re planning a wedding or other special events that require catering at the Arboretum you might be interested to know that our new executive Chef Latoya Smith also serves as the executive chef for the Arboretum’s Sky Lakes Catering Co. and can help you arrive at the perfect menu. Learn more about Smith — and how the new brunch menu came to be — on our Nature Notes blog.
