Dallas Observer's Description

This Old East Dallas cafe is exactly what you’d expect from a neighborhood restaurant. There are chicken-salad sandwiches, turkey melts and meatloaf. There are eggs and bacon and pancakes and other breakfast items, served all day like every good cafe should. They have fresh fruit, fresh drip coffee and fresh baked desserts too. What you might not expect is an interesting decor with exposed brick, hanging lights and custom booths. Or the full garden out back that’s complete with raised beds and live chickens. And there’s a coffee machine that might cost more than the car you drove to get here. Hopefully you didn’t have to drive to the Garden Cafe, though. Tucked away on a quiet neighborhood street in Junius Heights, this restaurant is a local gem, and most of the patrons surrounding you are neighbors who have walked here.

    The Woottens don't call their place the Garden Cafe for nothing: they've been growing the ingredients for their home-style cooking right out in the back yard for years and years. [Eater 38 Member]

    Has its own herb garden that serves as a serene backdrop to the setting. The space itself plays host to a variety of purposes including photography shows and poetry readings.

    The Key Lime Pie is a delicious meal all it's own.

  • Examiner.com on 06/13/11

    Good food, happy people, local art, and a beautiful garden. Gives new meaning to eating locally!

    If it is Sunday, you have to do the Chicken and Dumplings. Only on Sunday's menu. Delectable.
