Beautiful Atmosphere

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

Not the easiest place to find if you don't live in Yuma but that's what GPS is for right? Try to be seated with server Eric. He's wonderful. Sit inside or outside on the patio. Listen to the tropical birds talking, watch the peacock vie for your attention. The food is good, nice selection of wines. Full bar for liquor... More

Great place for a delicious outdoor meal. We love the breakfasts! When we have out of town guests we try to take them to The Garden Cafe and they always enjoy it and want to return there next time they're in town.

Housed in a century old building, this cafe provides ambiance and privacy. Seating is available on several levels, so you may enjoy the birds and garden. I go for the Sunday brunch. It is a great menu, with something for everybody.

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.
