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

Once you tire of fried food, burgers, and manufactured chain restaurant meals make a visit here for truly great food. Salads are varied, seafood and sandwiches are enjoyable, and service is attentive and well informed about the menu. All breads are offered in gluten free options as are many desserts - a nice and appreciated option!

This is a "go to" place for us on weeknights. It's easy to meet here after work or just pick up something and take it home. The food is always good and the menu changes monthly. I love the variety and the use of fresh ingredients. It is a little pricey but the quality and convenience justify the extra expense.... More

My wife and I ALWAYS eat at Cafe 1217 when visiting Hot Springs. We have NEVER been disappointed. The menu is seasonally fresh with the old standbys we look forward to like tomato basil soup. Staying in a condo? Pick up what you like and take out!
