    I went to the tea room at the botanical gardens today 10/10/2016. I received TERRIBLE SERVICE from the woman at the counter. She is very rude and arrogant and does not make people feel welcome. It costs NOTHING to smile at patrons who are coming there to relax. She does not have any people skills. That place is one of the key reasons as to why I went there ,but sadly really fell drastically low of my expectations. The woman at the counter needs to learn some people skills and understand that we are patrons contributing to the Botanical Gardens and not only there to receive TERRIBLE SERVICE from her. I hope management takes this into consideration. I will return to see if she greets people with a "Smile" -bad service
    Fresh scones and crumpets with optional toppings: fresh whipped cream, cheese, jam and ice cream. Toasted sandwiches, hamburgers or toast. Tea, coffee, milo or cooldrinks.
    I stop by every time I visit the gardens and order 30 scones once a month for our meetings at work.

    Little known fact: The Kiosk was established in 1963 in order to generate income to supply tuberculosis patients with food parcels as they cannot take their medication on an empty stomach. Failure to complete the six month course of daily medication leads to the patient becoming infectious again and more people becoming infected.
    Beautiful ambience but beware of microwaved baked goods.
