“delightful eatery with local products and healthy approach to food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

Although I am not a vegetarian this restaurant with its beautiful garden terrace has a variety of wonderful non-animal options. The menu is creative and delicious. Be warned, though, you may have to wait in line and some meals take a bit longer to prepare since everything is done freshly and naturally. It is a reminder of how far we have come from the old fashioned way of eating. I definitely recommend this restaurant as a must while in Woodstock

“A wonderful find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

This is a wonderful little place featuring vegan and vegetarian dishes
that are both delicious and nutritious.

The outdoor seating area lined with flowers and trees is simply charming.

Pam, the owner - and Melissa, on Pam's waitstaff - are caring, thoughtful and truly interested in making your time in the Garden Cafe enjoyable.

If you enjoy tasty and healthy food, this is a great find and well worth a visit.

“They do not understand what business they are in”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on Monday Aug.11. What a mistake. The pace of service was beyond glacial. They were out of the specials. They were out of potatoes. But it took the waitress some time to discover this and let us know. A family seated next to us walked out because the kitchen would not make a cheese sandwich for a small chld, even though they had bread and cheese and had done this before.

Food was very ordinary. Not much flavor or local content. I suspect they survive because they have one of the few restrooms in town. Even this is very inconvenient and pretty beat.

“BEST VEGAN FOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

We make the hour long drive quite often for the yummy vegan food! As a vegan, it's wonderful to not have to ask if anything has dairy, eggs, butter, honey, etc. I can order anything I like off the menu and it is always fantastic! The creme brule oatmeal off of the breakfast menu is amazing and everything I've ever ordered off of the lunch menu has been delicious especially the soups! We always order so much food (after driving an hour) that we end up with food for the next day! If it's warm out, sit outside--it will only enhance your dining experience! ENJOY!
