Lunch in the Woodland Garden

Take Mom to lunch in the Woodland Garden by Palace Cafe Catering. Scrumptious sandwiches, fresh salads, and irresistible sweets are on the menu. This is a first come, first serve event—no reservations. Admission to the House and Garden must be purchased to attend lunch at the Woodland Garden Court.



The Los Angeles Times proclaims, “Popbar draws the crowds for impossibly beautiful gelato on a stick in a gazilion flavors!” Popbar will be selling handcrafted gelato on a stick made with all natural ingredients. They offer a traditional gelato treat by preparing it in the most genuine way, using only fresh fruit and a handful of Italian ingredients. Blending authenticity with innovation, they serve gelato in a new way—on a stick, which is more fun, easier to eat and kid-friendly.

The Quail’s Nest Café

The Quail’s Nest Café is open during their normal operating hours Mother’s Day Weekend starting at 9:30am! Have a meal with Mom before or after your visit to Filoli. Located at the Visitor and Education Center, the café offers a delectable selection of fresh soups, sandwiches, salads, desserts, and seasonal special entrées. No reservations accepted. Dining is first come, first served.
