A great place for kids & adults who enjoy eating outdoors & like being entertained by the birds. Recommend the oatmeal pancakes & I love their spiced tea.

This is behind the Sangunetti house, there are cute shops around the cafe and birds in cages around the cafe, it is very nice to go to and enjoy your surroundings. I imagine, not so fun when it is 120 degrees but in December, it was great! I had the quiche and it was OK, it came with an excellent... More

A different type of restaurant for Yuma. Multi level, cosy, pretty and seasonal. The service is excellent. Felt like we were sitting in someone's back yard. It was a little cool but the outdoor heaters made my visit quite comfortable. I loved the tri tip salad; such a huge portion that I took half of it home.

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.
