The Butterfly Estates lures nature lovers with a scenic botanical garden, glass butterfly conservatory, and recently refurbished historical structures. The 3,614-square-foot glazed-glass sanctuary creates an ideal habitat for butterflies, as thousands of colorful wings flit among waterfalls, tropical nectar flowers, and an on-site wing masseuse. The estate’s refurbished historical structures, built in the early 1900s by American settlers, now house Mother Nature's Gift Shop, Caterpillars Ice Cream and Fudge Factory, and Flutterby's Café, an open-air cafe and eatery featuring a scenic wraparound porch. Visitors receive 10% off at all three establishments for the duration of their membership. In addition, members get periodic email notifications with news of upcoming events as well as early access to visiting guest speakers and private interrogations with secretive caterpillars.

Gardner's Park Tea House at The Shops at The Butterfly Estates

A 3,614-square-foot glass greenhouse dominates the landscape at The Butterfly Estates, where hundreds of butterflies flutter about. Monarchs, swallowtails, and rarer breeds flash their prismatic wings as they sip from tropical-nectar plants, alight on tree branches, and play proboscis patty-cake with their neighbors. Visitors soothe their souls with the peaceful sound of rushing waterfalls within the space, which is also punctuated with signs describing the insect residents and promoting environmental conservation. When sitting in the front yard dressed like a giant butterfly fails, the center can advise guests on how to attract butterflies to their gardens at home.

The Estates comprises more than just the glass conservatory, however; in adjacent refurbished homes from the early 20th century, the caretakers have installed a café, a gift shop, and a tea hours serving tea forte, frogurt and handmade fudge. At ZCrêpes Café, patrons recline on black leather booths in a modern space with chrome tabletops. Fresh breezes waft through the outdoor area as diners nibble sweet and savory crepes, or just-baked quiche.

Very nice and relaxing. Great for when visitors come to town. ZCrepes is also a nice touch for lunch after the gardens:)
