small location in downtown district with some serious mouthwatering homemade pasta dishes, forget about the empty retail space and enjoy the great food

Garlic City Cafe is a lovely downtown restaurant, but it is the scrumptious foods that have made this place so popular. Try the fresh scones that Diego makes with a cup of coffee in the morning -- it's such a treat! Of course, you have to try the Creamy Garlic Soup - a restaurant staple. Last week, I had the vegetarian club sandwich, and it was absolutely delicious with sauteed eggplant, avocado, and other veggies and a delicious smathering of a sauce that was delicious.

All six people on our party enjoyed their food. Good sandwiches with interesting flavor twists like cranberry mayo with pablano pepper on the turkey sandwich and garlic mayo on chicken sandwich. Bread was ok with better bread sandwiches could be a home run. Good salads. The garlic soup was great. I highly recommend this for a reasonable stop and get away from fast food.

We just happened upon this restaurant for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The service was quick and friendly (even if delivery of the food was a bit prolonged) and the meal was very tasty. The water and iced tea glasses were always full. You could tell the chef took a little extra time with each of our meals because each of us had nothing but praises for the preparation. I had a chicken with portabella mushrooms sandwich and my friend had a pastrami sandwich. I'll definitely go back.
