Located at the humble shop lots of the Aranda residence, Gardenage is now the love of many Kota Kemuning peeps for a brunch spot.
Gardenage started out as purely a plant store, selling various pots, plants, wooden furniture for your porch, and fertilizers.
Green thumbs would come here to get a consultation of how to care for their plants as well as shop for new plant additions to their homes.
Initially, they would only serve coffee and simple croissants.
Later on, the dining area expanded to the shop lot beside and the menu was added with more complex dishes like pasta, croffles, bread, salmon, lamb and more.
