This restaurant has closed its doors. Pity. It was very good, and not a chain. We will miss this place.

This great little spot was interesting and innovative. They closed on Saturday, March 8th. We understand the house will be used for collegiate housing.

This was a great little place. They did California cuisine with a Texas touch. Alas the building was purchased and is being turned into a duplex.

Dined at Cool Mint Café this evening and was impressed by a menu that was organic with vegetarian and vegan options. I first had the pear/Gorgonzola salad which was good. I would have enjoyed it more with a less spicy dressing but that is my personal taste. I then had the salmon burger which came with a choice of two... More

I went with co-workers for dinner and the food was great. I liked it a lot but the parking was difficult.

This is my favorite place in San Marcos for lunch or dinner. Their menu changes often as they dream up new (always delicious) treats (see coolmintcafe.com for the current one). They grow some of their own organic veggies and get lots of others locally. The atmosphere, in this clean, almost century-old bungalow, is quiet, informal, relaxed and friendly. Much of... More

We've had a number of great meals here. My favorites are the meatloaf and the South Western chicken. I know that the greens come from the owner's organic garden giving the whole experience a healthful feeling. The place is cozy, with several comfortable rooms and a staff that aims to make for a memorable experience. Highly recommended.

After reading the reviews here, I wanted to try the Cool Mint Cafe. I was not disappointed! Located in an old Craftsman Bungalow, off the main drag in San Marcos, the Saturday lunchtime atmosphere was pleasant for visiting. My partner and I both ordered the Thai Salmon Burger with added pineapple, with a side salad - his was the house... More

This was a find in San Marcos. Have been here 2 times and food has been very good. Our grandson,a real carnivore, spotted the lamb ribs with braised brussels sprouts, and polenta on the dinner menu. We were there at noon.....no problem, they served him the dinner entree and it was delish. Wine selections are good and the menu is... More
