Yummy and pet friendly:)

The first time we came here was because it was a place we could come and bring our dogs, sitting outside on the patio. They did all they could to make us and our pups comfortable and even brought a water bowl for the dogs. The food is always good - great salads - and very reasonable prices.

Homey, family friendly plus that was full of locals. The selection was all basic american foods plus some nice Mexican offerrings mixed in. We had salads. Good food and good service. Wait staff was efficient and attentive. Would recommend for a lunch with the ladies or as a couple, even good for families. Friendly place. Good value.

Place was already packed at 11:30 when we arrived to meet friends. Service was fast and efficient. I had the tuna melt sandwich and wife had the Cobb salad. Both were excellent. This place is a winner!

Great service and very tasty food! My date had the chicken n veggie stir fry, lots of tasty chicken cooked on iron skillet served to the table! I had the traditional beef enchiladas that were loaded with mouth watering beef! Will be back again.

Eclectic Cafe had a variety of food we choose the Topopo salad and my friend ate rolled beef tacos. Both were delicious; topped off with a glass of house wine, perfect. The waiter was nice but not overly friendly; the salsa wasn't hot but he brought out another option, which was different but hotter. Overall it was delicious food and... More

I used to eat here all the time when I worked across the street. I haven't been in a while & it's as good as I remembered. Went for dinner on Sunday & it was very busy. Had the Cream of Broccoli Soup, Chicken Quesadilla & Key Lime Pie. Everything was great. Highly recommend it.

I stayed and Tuscan and was looking for a nice sandwich shop. I stumbled across this one and was very pleased. The sandwich and fries were very good for a small meal. They also have what I believe they called "no gringo" salsa which is some of the best salsa I've had in my life. If you go, definitely try... More

We had lunch at Eclectic and enjoyed it. I had a chicken salad sandwich which was delicious although I'm not a huge fan of a salad made using so many varieties of leafy greens. Others in the group had salads and they liked them very much. The service was great, unlike some other places the drinks were refilled frequently, and... More

We went to dinner here based on TA ratings and were very impressed with the ambiance, food and service. The menu is very diverse and everything we had was well presented and high quality. Our server was very pleasant and professional. This will be our first choice to revisit when we are in the area.
