Time Out says

Struggling to find your spreadsheets/lanyard/purpose in life? Fifty hectares of lush green magic and a slab of homemade banana bread might help. A decent coffee taken under and an ancient oak or next to a glass Victorian palm house can work wonders. Simpson’s Kiosk (aka the Gardens Kiosk) sits at the heart of the perfectly formed, 150-year-old Gardens, right next to a super-birdy lake and marvellous architectural succulents. And it’s all just eight minutes’ walk from Rundle Mall. Forego the morning shower and forest bathe away the blues every day of the week.
