Good food, "interesting" atmosphere

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... read 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

Everything positive that everyone else already said.... it's true! We actively went looking for this café based on the other reviews and we were not disappointed. We mistakenly arrived ten minutes before closing time, but they gladly served us anyway. And were kind about it (never making us feel like we were keeping them or in the way, etc.)! And... More

Just happened by this restaurant and what a gem! Everyone should know about this place, it really is a great spot. Busy, so if you are look for an empty restaurant you won't find that here. The food is outstanding, I had the veggie sandwich and French onion soup, both were so good, the veggie sandwich was the best I... More
