This was the first place we ate in San Marcos after we arrived, and we kept coming back. We've eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Il Giardino and have always been happy. Their gluten-free bread is delicious, and their beet hummus made a temporary believer out of a beet-hater. We enjoyed everything we ate here from the delicious veggie burger to the tipico breakfast. The service can get slow as there's usually just one person covering the whole restaurant, but we never had to wait for too long a time for anything. Besides, with the tranquil garden atmosphere, we were happy to sit and stay a while longer.
