Chose this place over the #1 rated because hubby couldn't eat anything on the menu of the #1 place. Anyway, so glad we went in. Excellent soup, delicious eggsalad sandwich. Sprouts on the sandwich was a plus for me. Friendly, attentive waitress. Everyone thanked us for coming in, even the cook. Will definitely go here again when in town!

Overall, the food is 5-star along with the service. I docked a star because of the numerous references to substance paraphernalia on the waitstaff's shirt and the plants on the ceiling looking like they do. While we will come here when our kids are small, we will not as they grow older and understand more.

One of the best places to eat in TC. The soup and sandwiches are amazing! If your downtown at lunchtime it's a must! Great place for kids too

The Green House Cafe is a local gem in downtown TC. As a person that works downtown, I require something that is quick. Regardless of how busy the restaurant is, the standard procedure is expedite the to go orders. This is especially handy in the summertime when the tourist traffic picks up.

My fiance and I were exploring the shops downtown on a rainy Saturday, and decided to pop in for a quick lunch at the Green House Cafe. We each ordered the veggie sandwich and some coffee and were surprised by how BIG the sandwiches were! Great service, good coffee and a welcoming little cafe.

Today tried the breakfast and was more than pleased. We normally go for lunch as the quality of the food and the service are consistently great. Not fancy, but always clean and appealing and the prices are very good. The homemade soups and muffins are always great. Go try it.

There are days, especially one the winter hits, where there is nothing quite like a great cup of soup and a sandwich and the Green House Cafe always satisfies. I always opt for the half sandwich and soup combo and I am always satisfied with the result. I wouldn't say they have anything that is super unique or innovative, but... More
