Yummy garden salad and healthier options and it is vegan. Homemade sourdough bread was delicious, too.

My cousin and I stopped here on our way from Phoenix to San Diego and Yuma is the 1/2 way point and lunch time. This is a seasonal place, it closes in the summer, of course ! Yuma in the summer would not be good for outside eating. We did not call for reservation but were able to get in... More

We wandered into this little hidden gem, which is located in old town Yuma, and we're delighted that we found it. The prices are very reasonable, the staff are quick, helpful, professional and friendly. The Tortilla soup was savory without being hot. My mother in law had an avocado sandwich, which I sampled, that was delicious and well presented. My... More

Eating at the Garden Café is a very unique experience in Yuma. Outdoors dining under the trees with birds flitting about. You will need to check for times and dates they are open as they close for the summer!!!

This restaurant is only open from October thru May (too hot here to eat outside in the other months). It is a beautiful garden area with birds and it's very own Spice Tea. The food is homemade. I particularly love the tortilla soup and their chicken salad is GREAT.

Service was good and delicious food . The Garden café is an outdoor restaurant in the city of Yuma Arizona that has almost 365 days of sunshine. I recommend this café between the months September and May each year.

Went with friends who are leaving for the summer. It is very important to make a reservation at this beautiful spot since it fills up quickly. Had the Chicken Tortilla soup and half a turkey sandwich. The soup is home made and one of the best tortilla soups ever. They have their own blend of iced tea which, if you... More

We went for lunch while still a little chilly, so they put patio heaters on for us which worked great. Went back again when warmer for an early dinner with another couple and enjoyed the lovely gardens. The tortilla soup is awesome. They're daily special is always a delight. Enjoyed two more visits there before returning back to Canada. Looking... More
