We went there for lunch and were not disappointed. They have daily specials and the food is fresh and delicious. I had the best chocolate walnut pie I have ever eaten. It was so good that we went back a couple days later just for dessert, but they had sold out of the pie (so disappointed). It’s not a cheap... More

My husband and I dined here and we love this restaurant. A healthy and delicious lunch. My husband said his turkey burger was excellent and my kale salad was delicious and beautiful. Be sure to try the ginger brew. All homemade.😊

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals here. As a person who has celiac disease, I was happy to learn that they had gluten-free bread available for sandwiches and even use a dedicated toaster to toast the bread. My husband had the fish tacos and I had a turkey sandwich - both were delicious. You could tell this place... More

The owner of this restaurant is a chef! The foods are fresh and prepared for the day's service. This is a clique hangout and the atmosphere can be a little uppity and stiff from Hot Springs snobs who visit 1217 but take out is available. Food can also be carried home for those who missed your excellent lunch at 1217.... More

Got a 1/2 of sandwich and cup of soup to go. Took back to my room as I don't like dining by myself. Very good. Good service and very nice people.

Went based on Trip Advisor reviews and once again following this course of action was the correct way to go. If your looking for white table cloths and jacketed waiters look elsewhere. However, if you want fresh food prepared well, this is the place. First time but not our last. Both my wife and I found something to satisfy our... More

After three visits to Cafe 1217 over the past year, I recommend this restaurant enthusiastically. Everything I've tried has been fresh and delicious, and the rest of my family, including a moderately picky husband and a vegetarian daughter, has been very satisfied as well. Although there are always meaty selections, I would say this place is a vegetarian's dream. It's... More

My daughter found this on her Samsung Galaxy Search and so we went at 6:30pm. The staff was helpful and also assisted us very promptly. They told us to sit and enjoy our food. They also helped me pick a plate for my husband to go. I fixed it up just as they said at our condo and he LOVED... More

This is the kind of place where you get great quality food but its self service but at the same time it cannot be classified as a whole in the wall since the place is well furnished decorated and the atmosphere more like a neighborhood favorite restaurant. We went to the Garvan woodlands garden and ready for some yummy food... More

Food is always fresh and delicious. We always look forward to having lunch there. Salads, sandwiches and desserts are great. Like the option of making your own salad plate from several selections in the cooler when you walk in.
