The Jazz Brunch Series is a very important part of our Rock Garden Cafe programming and a favourite at the Royal Botanical Gardens. As there are only a limited number of seats available we often fill early in the week before the performance and are forced to turn away attendees. As such, we ask all patrons to please be cognizant of this and if plans change cancel their reservations or adjust the number of expected guests as early as possible by calling (905) 527-1158 ext. 330. Please leave a message with the name on the reservation to be cancelled or the change on the number of guests in your party. We can then open reservations to patrons that have been unsuccessful at booking earlier in the week.

Arrival

Brunch begins at 11 a.m. Please ensure your party arrives promptly at this time to be seated.

Directions and Parking
