Good salads & nice 1/2 salad and 1/2 sandwiches choices on the menu. Meals were large and tasty. There was an outdoor area to sit at (but not for us in the Florida summer heat) so we chose the air conditioned inside.

Ok for quick sandwiches not anything out of the ordinary. Nice outdoor area to sit at and a couple tables inside with a room next to it with additional tables.

It started 6 years ago, my wife and I rented a motorcycle (Harley Davidson) and headed north from Saint Petersburg up along the coast past Dunedin to route 52 , we then cut across to Dade City. First impression , "What a lovely friendly city". Well the road took us to this Garden cafe. We decided to stop and enjoy... More

My partner and I had a late lunch here, for the first time, both of us getting 1/2 salad and 1/2 sandwiches. The black and blue salad, as well as the Asian chicken salad, altho 1/2 sized, were very large and tasty. Our sandwiches, one a Rueben, and one Fried green tomato BLT were also en pointe. We both would... More

We stopped here during an afternoon of antique shopping in Dade. We enjoyed the tomato bisque and reuben sandwiches in a converted old car repair shop/dealership with both outdoor shady and indoor seating. Also loved the large pink lemonade! I'd go back again for sure!

There are few places in this area where you can get generous portions of excellent food for such a modest price. Nothing on the menu over $10. Now that's a bargain! Table service and atmosphere were both very good. All four of us had a different entree and expressed the same positive 'tasty choice'! Will go back again for sure.

The food is very tasty and well presented. One problem...they run out of Kumquat pie too often! This is a restaurant for dog-owners as they are allowed at tbe tables (the staff will even bring them bowls of water)! Great for pets and their owners...not so great for the rest ofus!

Had the Caprese BLT with cucumber salad, my cousin had the daily special, fresh turkey and swiss with potato salad. Excellent food and service.

Relaxing and Wonderful food... The seafood bisque is one of the best I have had... I have never had a bad item. If you get the opportunity to have a meal here I recommend you take the time and enjoy.. It is also Dog friendly

We stopped for a light lunch and chose outdoor seating. The tables and chairs are all different, perhaps adding a touch of whimsy. The staff was friendly, although the service was a bit slow. (They could clear dishes when customers are gone. Please bring my check first.) For soup, salads and sandwiches, there was little creativity. Food did seem fresh.... More
