We traveled quite a distance to visit this store. Plants were outrageously priced. We left empty handed. Don't mind paying a fair price but these were common varieties that can be had anywhere for $5 to $10 depending on size. Their prices were upwards of $25.99. Don't waste your time. The outlet store is a joke too.

While looking for plants and other gardening necessities, it is really convenient to have this little cafe' in the garden center. The food is local, freshly prepared, and delicious. Soups, salads and sandwiches are on the menu and there are both an inside and outside tables to sit and enjoy your wonderful lunch.

How can you go wrong?!!! Limited but terrific/tasty offerings. Reasonable prices. Amazing surroundings - especially in Vermont winters. A wonderful escape from VT inclement weather. Never more than 3 people in line. Bonus - pant shopping optional. Garden walks, earth energy. You can not go wrong, especially in the winter if you dine in the tropical plant section

Had lunch there during out visit to Williston. Not very many choices on the lunch menu, but everything seemed to be farm fresh and locally grown. Had a few sandwiches and fresh cookies

The sandwich I ordered was delicious but no one was there and I still had to wait 26 minutes. By that home a few people arrived. I had to get in line and ask how much longer it would be. My sandwich had just been sitting there because it was forgotten. Not happy.

Especially in the winter months, it is great to have soup/sandwich surrounded by the orchids, and greenery. Sandwiches have always been good. Customization pretty much limited to grilled or not. Good soups. Get there before noon, to get a table in the greenhouse. In the spring/summer the outdoor seating is shaded and overlooks a little pond. I do not think... More

The Garden of Eatin' is a sandwich stop in Gardeners Supply in Williston. They have about 5 or 6 different pre-made (that day; show up early and you can watch them made.) sandwiches that all are good. They have kids meals that can have a grilled cheese, bagel, etc, but it's the baked goods that draw us in. The cookies... More

Most items are made with Vermont produce, bread & cheese. Delicious. It's so lovely to pop in for lunch or a snack in the dead of winter or a rainy day and see the lush plants & flowers growing in the greenhouse and dining area.

Tucked away inside a large greenhouse retailer, this little cafe offers healthy choices for sandwiches and maybe not-so-healthy dessert bars, etc --- but really, all so good. Great for a convenient bite to eat. Atmosphere is not cozy, since it is part of the retail shop, but the quality of the good is well, very good! Just go early if... More
