Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.

Love the salad offerings at this place in the summer, especially when dining outdoors under their wisteria arbor. In the winter I really like their homemade chili.

I've eaten here a few times when I've been in Burnsville, and it's always so good. The Ham and Swiss is amazing, so is the chili. Great service, and we love eating outside.

Love the fact that the outside seating is under a big tree. Lunch menu is very varied from quesadillas to tuna melts and everything I have tried has been excellent. Wait staff is good. Lunch is usually very crowded if you go at 12 - so go earlier if you don't want to wait to get in!

I loved the outdoor space for dinning. It was just lovely. The food was pretty good as well! The wait staff were very friendly and helpful with the items on the menu. We went for lunch. I will go back again for sure.
