“Great gourmet lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

Cafe 1217 has wonderful gourmets lunch options for a very reasonable price! Had the Southwest Wrap, hubby had same wrap with chipotle chicken salad, and we shared a slice of Shoefly pie. Everything was fresh, a great filling yet light lunch! Very friendly service, prices were reasonable for gourmet food ($8.75 for entree). Would definitely visit again!

“Dine Here When You Are In Hot Springs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

Great variety at this small crowded deli. Busy every time I have had lunch here sometimes with a long wait in line. Go BEFORE 12 if possible. Easy to find location but away from congested downtown. Inadequate parking and serve yourself counter ordering and pick up make this eatery deserve only a 4.

“Great cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Always a new monthly menu. This place is packed at lunch time and makes best desserts in town. I'd recommend lunch here and dinner next door at Taco Mamo and your day is complete!

“Great place for Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Then food at Cafe 1217 was fresh and delicious. I had the Mexican Torilla Wrap with a pasta salad side. The wrap was fresh and a balanced mixture of the chicken, avocado, pico de gallo and queso fresco. The side salad is the salad of the day so another day it might be different. Service was fast and efficient, there is a good selections of sandwiches and salads plus entrees. You can also mix and match soup and salads. Tomato soup was the featured soup and I was told by a frequent customer that it was superb. The prices are reasonable and service was quick and efficient. There was not a moment while I was there that the line was less tha 12 people. I take that into consideration as I make the comment that the staff as a whole could be a little more polite. They were constantly busy so I guess that would make anyone forget to smile and say "thank you" . This is not meant to be a criticism just an observation.
