We had dinner there on our first night in Granada, and couldn't have asked for a nicer first dinner there! Our server Jesus was very professional, and very attentive with great recommendations! The place itself is absolutely beautiful, with an awesome courtyard to dine in....The atmosphere is very Nicaraguan, and perfect for couples. My wife absolutely loved her Chimichurri with vegetables. I loved the taco pescado with the salsa picante!! I'd definitely go back again!More

I had been outside of Granada and Nicaragua for all of COVID, two years, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the Garden Cafe still open, looking beautiful as ever, and featuring a new and creative menu. The shakshouka was lovely, my favorite breakfast, and...the poached eggs over veggies, quinoa and beans was equally delish and very generous. Damien and Xiomara continue to run a wonderful oasis with good eats and fast, friendly service.More

Excellent all around. A great atmosphere next to a beautiful garden. The food was wonderfully prepared and delicious. All in my party were impressed as well. Will be back for sure to try more menu items while staying here in Granada.

Fabulous breakfast Cafe in the heart of Granada. I had the power B breakfast and it was one of the best I've ever had in my travels. My friend had a delicious plate of waffles and the other friend had a wonderful omelette. The Wi-Fi...was 40/20 and the coffee was decent. We will be returning soon.More

We visited in July 2021 for lunch and were pleased to see that covid-19 measures are in place - all people entering for food service are requested to go directly to the well-equipped sink near the restrooms and wash their hands. All staff wear masks,...tables are distanced even the check is delivered in a small metal can. The food was as delicious as any other time we have visited. The ambience is comfortable and the products diverse. Would recommend for a meal or a coffee or to buy from the crafts and gifts many of which support local groups.More

We went there every single day of our 3-days-stay in Granada and never got disappointed. From breakfast to dinner, each meal we chose was delicious :-) Prices are a bit higher than at other places but it is really worth it. The atmosphere is just...great, staff is very friendly and attentive.More

I enjoyed breakfasts, lunches, and a dinner at this gorgeous restaurant. The menu had plenty of options for food as well as good smoothies and cocktails. It is no doubt the most stylish space in town in its principle rooms as well as densely planted...courtyard and verandah. I sat there for hours doing work and listening to the water splash in the fountain and birds chirping while they took their baths. The staff were quite nice as well. Service was great and food / drinks always arrived in a timely fashion. I can't wait to return.More

Great little café. I had a wonderful fresh beverage with fresh mint. I had a terrific Caesar salad with grilled chicken and my daughter got a vegetarian sandwich that she raved about!

This is a casual top notch cafe. It is set in an outdoor garden but all diners are covered. It serves local and vegetarian cuisine. There are 2 smaller rooms with high end handcrafted items, fine jewelry. a few books and local edible products like...honey and coconut oil. This is in a very convenient downtown location near the town square. it is very popular so get there early. The wine is good. They also serve beer.More

The Garden cafe is a cosy venue where you can just pick up a book and relax alongside a beautiful indoor garden. There are plenty of vegetarian friendly dishes to choose from here and we had the Buddha bowl. It was wholesome and satisfying. The...service was also good and attentive. We did find prices to be on the expensive side here, especially when you add the 10pc service charge and 15pc tax. They accept cash or credit.More

I am not aware of any rented rooms at the Garden Cafe. For long term stays I would suggest contacting either GPS or the Vista Mombacho Apartments in Granada.
