This place is a quiet respite in a busy part of Yuma. We had lunch and all of the food was good. The feeling of our group of four was the price point was high but we enjoyed the lunch. Two of us had the clubhouse sandwich and felt it was closer to a ham and cheese sandwich. We all... read more

Outdoor dining at its best. No visit to Yuma is complete without a stop at The Garden Cafe. Charming in all aspects: friendly wait staff, birds in the aviary, historic appeal, lush garden landscaping. You simply can't go wrong with a breakfast or lunch at The Garden, unless you forget to make reservations on a busy day! Garden quiche, Pollo... More

We had out of town guests and had planned a "ladies' day" and the Garden was the perfect spot. I called for reservations, but we got there early and they took us. We were seated among trees and flowers and the sound of birds. Just delightful. We all ordered the half sandwich plus soup. Their signature soup is worth the... More

Loved the atmosphere of this outdoor dining spot, from the long corridor leading you in from the street, to the flowering vines, and birds everywhere. I would recommend making a reservation the day before if you can--they were quite busy. Our favorite was the Swedish pancakes, but everyone was pleased (Burrito, quiche). We always try to search out local favorites... More

Visited on a recent lunch break. Waitress took our order, brought our drinks, then disappeared off the face of the earth. 30 minutes later, still no waitress, we decided to leave. Gave my opinion of the establishment to the manager on the way out. The manager didn't seem to care that we had wasted our time (didn't even make eye... More

have been here in the past and good experience. Today was function for 10 people with a reservation. They had us at 2 different not close tables. Not good. Waitress was having off day too. Bossy and critical attitude.

I noticed this quaint cafe after visiting the Sanguinetti house next door. The Sunday brunch sounded fantastic, and it is $15.95, but I was overruled and we went today instead. The garden is beautiful and very well-kept. Even though they are only open until May, I suggest going in the morning because of the heat. I ordered Swedish Oatmeal pancakes... More

The Garden Cafe is loved by locals and visitors alike. The seating is all outside in a covered garden patio next to bird cages filled with cheery little birds. It is a unique chance to dine in the cool desert winter breeze and enjoy phenomenally prepared, healthy dishes. The servers are quick and friendly, and often reservations are required if... More

If ever in Yuma, Arizona, on a Sunday morning you'll want to try The Garden, or, as it says on their flyers, The Great Garden Buffet. This is a lay-out to die for. Everything on their buffet menu is exceptional and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is in an older part of Yuma and is situated back off of the... More
