Bainbridge Gardens is a family-owned business with a six-acre nursery filled with a variety of plants, garden art, and more. They celebrate their 60th year in Bainbridge Island business this year, starting as a small florist at Town and Country Market in Winslow and growing into their current location down Highway 305 in 1989.

We love to pop into New Rose Café for a cup of coffee and bite to eat. The café is open most of the year but does close from Christmas through February 1st. They offer in and outdoor seating options with a selection of salads, sandwiches, pizza and more, with a play area for the kiddos.

 
There is something to discover at every turn throughout the 6-acre grounds.
