Good sandwiches

Latte was only average but sandwiches were large and tasty. Two people can share one. Good value and good service too.

A small coffee, sandwich and book store with staff that really tries hard to do a good job. The wraps were good and prices are reasonable. A good choice for breakfast or lunch.

All fresh, made on the premises, best place for vegetarians and others seeking a fresh, natural meal. Also great coffee, and plenty of books to look at. They are only open through lunch--would have ate dinner there too.

This is a person/ family owned cafe. While I like to eat and support such places, sorry to say I did not like the place much. Everything was good except the food. Ambience: the best part of the cafe! Warm and cozy. Books, basket all around. Nice feel overall. Nice host. Price: ok Food: home cooked, but not for me... More

When I was in Gardiner this was my favorite place to be. Great and cozy atmosphere along with so many good things to eat and drink. If you want a nice and peaceful morning or afternoon this is the place whether you want to have a nice friendly talk, read a book or just relax.

Great salad/soup bar. Affordable and lots of parking. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

On our way into the Park, Tumbleweeds offered a variety of items worth of a hearty appetite! Although the young lady seemed alone, she was handling breakfast/coffee/ lunch orders pretty fast. We got two wraps, chips, dessert bars and drinks for $11+ each and probably could easily have shared one sandwich. Both very tasty, bars yummy, good choice rather than... More

We found Tumbleweeds via TripAdvisor because of its high rating, and were not disappointed. It truly is a quaint little place that used to be a house. Great deck, as well as seating inside surrounded by a variety of books (not a bad selection either for such a small town). And the food was delicious - all homemade and prepared... More

We stopped in for an afternoon snack. The homemade soup was great and the salads fresh and tasty. Oh, the baked goods are yummy too. While we didn't have coffee, it looked very good. The interior was homey and the staff was lovely.

We went just for a coffee - but the cake looked so delicious that we could not withstand. Nice little terrace, you can look for books.
