One of my favorite vegetarian places to visit in Orlando!

I always make sure I come here every time we visit Orlando. The building could definitely use some upgrading, but it adds to that 'hidden gem' feel! All the food is great. You get great portions for the amount that you pay, and they're always very flexible with substitutions and add ons. The... read more

If you're in Orlando and need a break from veggie burgers, the Garden Cafe Restaurant is well worth a visit. The food was very fresh, there was a lot of choice and everything on the menu was veggie (though the menu listed meat names for dishes the ingredients detailed meat substitutes). Good value for money. Portion sizes are on the... More

So happened to be in Orlando and checked out TA for some Veggie fare and stumbled on Garden Cafe. 1st lemme point out that the menu you can view online is confusing because they list "meat" dishes. They are actually not. This is a 100 percent vegetarian/vegan place. 2nd, don't let the exterior fool you, it's an old converted Pizza... More

This is great little spot in Orlando Florida for Vegans and Vegetarians alike. Open at 9 am, we went in every morning for an authentic Vietnamese Breakfast of Pho while visiting Orlando. Served with sprouts, basil and lime. Simply fantastic and what a bargain at only $7 Mother, Father, and Daughter who served us, were super friendly and made us... More

Absolutely my favorite restaurant of all time. I discovered this place when I lived in Orlando and the fact that I live in Tampa now doesn't stop me from making frequent trips back. The food is absolutely amazing. Everything I have tried has been delicious and I love that I can order anything on the menu and it's ALL vegetarian.... More

When we lived in Orlando, we were at Garden Cafe once a week, at least. We try to stop back by any time we are in the area, and the yummy food never disappoints! My favorite is the veggie burger, which is always light and crispy. We also love the spring rolls, which are not oily and have lots of... More

The Food especially being vegetarian definitely punches above its weight. Well prepared and thought out. The wait staff could definitely be better. Felt that the place had a depressed look about it and the wait staff definitely didn't help to brighten it up.

I come to this restaurant at least 2-3 times a month. As a vegetarian family, my husband and I are always seeking out great places to dine. We stumbled upon this place on Google. I had no idea such a place existed, and was thrilled to try it out. The food is amazing, and I have developed two favorites- the... More

The food was very good and the different types of "food" were close to what they would taste like such as the beef and chicken. The spring rolls are delicious, not greasy at all. I tried the hamburger and it was also very good. The portions are good size. You will take some home with you.
