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.

The owner of 1217 is not only a marvelous cook but she is creative and always conscious of good nutrition. These things along with her friendliness makes 1217 the BEST restaurant in Hot Springs.

I like that there are menu items for vegans, vegetarians, meat eaters,those looking for something besides the same ole same ole. I have been to many an establishment that were most proud of their options as if folks had not only had it a gazillion times before but could easily make it at home and save the money. This place...

My boss was having an event catered in Hot Springs so I went to Cafe 1217 for "research." The food was so fresh and well-prepared. My sister-in-law was with me, and she is vegetarian, and when she told the girls at the counter they immediately came up with some great dishes for her to try. It was a really nice... More

Fox Pass Pottery recommended this restaurant. And, he was spot on. This restaurant is uber clean and the menu was perfect. I eat "clean" and they have so many options it made my head spin. I opted for the chicken cobb salad & was pleasantly surprised at the jicama and other veggies in my salad. The apple ginger tea was... More

The food is excellent, fresh and there are tons of options! Such a cool atmosphere! It's a great place for a date, to meet a friend for lunch, or to run in and grab something to go! Affordable prices and quality food!

Café 1217 catered my son's wedding rehearsal dinner at Quapaw Bath House, Hot Springs, AR. Diana had the task of providing a meal for a vegan bride and a meat and potato groom. We had approximately 50 guests and Café 1217 presented a selection of foods that suited everyone's taste. Even the vegan dishes were enjoyed by our meat and... More
