Yummy!

Amazing breakfast! The sourdough toast is the best I have ever had, even in San Fran! Ordered and omelet and biscuits and gravy with potatoes..... I am so glad we stumbled on this place on our way back home!

Friendly service. Good blueberry pancakes. Need to go back for lunch as they don't serve lunch on weekends.

The ambiance is quirky, colorful, and comfortable. The service was friendly and fast. We had breakfast, and totally enjoyed the fresh baked breads, farm fresh eggs, and home made pork sausage. I had an unusual dish that included white beans sautéed with fresh peppers and topped with creme fraiche. Wonderful!

The Garnet has amazing breakfast!!! (And great lunch too). Not to mention the amazing house made Chelada, which is one of my favorites. I would highly recommend trying the Garnet!

Don't let the sketchy appearance scare you away. There is usually a wait unless you're an early riser, but the food is so worth the wait. People stand outside and freeze in the winter to get a table. The food is THAT good. The terrific staff are all long-term employees which says a lot about the management. Happy cooks and... More

I went to Garnet not having a clue what to expect. WOW! What a shock. The food was so unique in the use of spices and treats. It was out of this world! I hope they stay in business for many many years!

This is a gem of a restaurant. Food is ALL fresh; locally grown and so very good. Waiter staff was good and so helpful. Food came promptly. Atmosphere is unpretentious and simple. I will go back to this place again. Have received all types of rewards; it was just soooo good!

The Garnet is one of the only restaurants in town that we eat at! I feel safe eating there knowing that the food is healthy. Most of the food served there is grown by the owners at there organic farm. There prices are comparable to other breakfasts in town. The staff is very nice and friendly. The staff seems to... More
