Keeping my father company post surgery at MCO, we went in search of a local breakfast place. Yummy 5 egg omelettes (many varieties), hashies, 4 strips of bacon, toast and coffee for $6. Enough for two. Great deal! I recommend the hearty local marble rye toast. My sister had pecan pancakes. Yum! I sub'd grits for the hash browns. So... More

as the menu is at least 8 pages, 8 heavy pages. I was really looking forward to eating here, too. I asked the waitress what she recommended and she said, "the broccoli cheese soup" and "the beef tips over noodles". The broccoli cheese soup was excellent. While tender, the beef tips were fairly bland. The cornbread muffin that accompanied it... More

My oh my....what to order? So many choices and so little tummy to hold it all! Oh, their beef vegetable soup.....I thought my mom made the best. Nope, Glendale Garden makes it. And it would take almost a year to sample every item on their menu. And it's all GOOD! No wonder it's so hard to find a parking place.... More

The Garden Café has such an extensive menu that you have to allow extra time just to read it let alone making a decision! Food is good, plentiful and covers almost anything that you can possibly want. Staff is courteous and fast. Very affordable, also.

Just arrived in Toledo for a conference at the University of Toledo. This place is right down the road from the college. It looked like there were a lot of cars in the parking lot so I thought I would give it a try. I am happy that I did. Homemade bread and biscuits, excellent. Had a cup of their... More

We had breakfast here and everyone in our party enjoyed their meals. I had the Greek omelet and it was outstanding. It was huge, there must have been five eggs in that omelet! They also stuffed it with tender gyro meat, onions, green peppers, feta cheese, it was loaded! And if that wasn't enough they put a mound of hash... More

My husband and I eat here at least once a week. My favorite is the chicken gyro...the homemade pita bread is amazing. Family owned, local, delicious and friendly.

We go here quite regularly for breakfast. There prices are excellent. The service is great. The food is wonderful. The portion sizes and selection are incredible. If you are staying at the Hilton at the Medical Center and have time, by all means do breakfast here, you won't be disappointed!
