Habits are hard to break and this place doesn't help. With everything vegetarian/vegan and a lot of options you would find at a non vegan place I have fallen in love with the food here. Staff always is nice, and remembers my family despite the fact that we don't live in Orlando anymore and only come occasionally. Sushi is good,... More

I called to make a lunch order for my office not once not twice but 4 days out of the week last week and NOT ONCE did they pick up the phone. I can certainly promise I will not suggest, recommend, or spend a dollar here ever again. You would think they were in business to make money but apparently... More

The food is always tasty and filling. Service was normal she got the job done. Building needs a little TLC but food was great so they get a pass.

I have known this place for a very long time. The food has always been great. But with the new owner, the service has been very bad. I recommend the place for the food but be aware the service is bad. But when you taste the food, the service can be tolerated.

Food is delicious, we've been here many times, for years now. Just don't know what is wrong with the server that is always on a bad mood.

I always make sure I come here every time we visit Orlando. The building could definitely use some upgrading, but it adds to that 'hidden gem' feel! All the food is great. You get great portions for the amount that you pay, and they're always very flexible with substitutions and add ons. The majority of the menu is mock meats,... More

If you're in Orlando and need a break from veggie burgers, the Garden Cafe Restaurant is well worth a visit. The food was very fresh, there was a lot of choice and everything on the menu was veggie (though the menu listed meat names for dishes the ingredients detailed meat substitutes). Good value for money. Portion sizes are on the... More

So happened to be in Orlando and checked out TA for some Veggie fare and stumbled on Garden Cafe. 1st lemme point out that the menu you can view online is confusing because they list "meat" dishes. They are actually not. This is a 100 percent vegetarian/vegan place. 2nd, don't let the exterior fool you, it's an old converted Pizza... More

This is great little spot in Orlando Florida for Vegans and Vegetarians alike. Open at 9 am, we went in every morning for an authentic Vietnamese Breakfast of Pho while visiting Orlando. Served with sprouts, basil and lime. Simply fantastic and what a bargain at only $7 Mother, Father, and Daughter who served us, were super friendly and made us... More
