The great experience of having a coffee and something nice to eat in the Art Noveau style building, which was built as a curator's residence in 1908. Exploring the beautiful Brisbane Gardens and then having a break at The Gardens Club cafe is a great way to spend a delightful morning in subtropical Brisbane and at the same time, support a business that gives back to the community.

The Group Hiking South East Qld and More meets at The Gardens Club cafe when walking to the Queensland Museum or the Gallery of Modern Art. It is a perfect place to accommodate a group with plenty of sitting areas on the beautiful verandah in the green of the gardens.

The Art Noveau style home was built as a curator's residence in 1908 and it is the third home to be built since the previous two succumbed to the weather. During World War II, it was used as a mess hall for the WRANS who were billeted nearby. After the war, it was again used as a curators residence until the 1980s when Harold Caulfield, the last curator of the gardens retired. As part of the 1987 redevelopment, it was remodelled into a restaurant and cafe, opening in September 1989.
