I eat meat, but I try to have at least one all vegetarian day a week. If I lived closer, I'd probably go here every time, but because it's about 40 minutes away, this place is just a special treat. The Singapore rice noodle, which I order extra spicy, is so delicious! The flavor is perfect, with crisp peppers and... More

This restaurant makes you say "Wow...this is fake meat!" It's amazing. This restaurant is 100% veg; however, you'd never know it by looking down at your plate. What a great concept. So good. Huge portions too.

The Garden Cafe is one of the many establishments around town that have turned an old pizza hut into a great family restaurant, but this one is a little different. Along west Colonial just past I-4 before OBT is a little dive called the Garden Cafe. It is a Vegetarian Chinese Restaurant. Now you have had Vegetarian, you have probably... More

What can I say? It's been a year, and I still can't forget the delectable meals we had at this amazing restaurant. The flavors were superb, the fresh ingredients were divine, and the portions were perfect for the price. Go there. You WON'T be disappointed.

A small cafe with a large, delicious menu! A variety of food choices. Great food for a good price. The meals are seasoned well, good portions, and filling. So good the first visit, we had to return the next day. The atmosphere is comfortable, casual, and simple. The service is good. Not too difficult to find on Colonial Drive. The... More

After we odered the Ma Po which was explained... More

I've been coming to the Garden Cafe for the past six years, and have never had a bad meal there. I've had almost everything on the menu, and can say that everything is delicious (although the vegetable buns and sesame "chicken" are my favorite!). The staff is wonderful, polite, and makes sure you enjoy your meal. One of the best... More
