This is my favorite place, mostly for brunch but also for dinner. I've brought friends, my mom, my sister and my boyfriend here and everyone is charmed. The wraps, salads, egg dishes, burgers and pasta are all delicious, the wine and beer list is excellent, and the hot chocolate is the best!

I've been here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Having a very picky girlfriend and living in Inwood has often led on long searches throughout the 'hood for quality food. However, Garden Cafe has never disappointed. Their beer selection (my palate's forte) is very satisfactory...and their pasta (my gf's forte) passes her tests regularly. Love it and have accepted it as one of Inwood's staples.

Garden Cafe is a diamond in the rough, a small wonder in Inwood that has great service, great food and a beautiful atmosphere. Its a wonderful quick night out. I been there several times, and can only wish they had a bigger selection.

The garden is really nice and the prices are reasonable. But the waitress we had was pretty dour and unnelpful and the bread was stale. My husband had the pecan crusted salmon which, we were told, is the "signature dish". The reason for this is unclear as the fish was under-seasoned and overcooked. I had a Caesar salad with chicken and `the chicken had nice grill marks but, it, too, was overcooked. It's a beautiful setting, though, so I hope the food improves.

It's tough to find a place for a nice dinner out in Inwood, but if you're looking to impress your dinner partner with a sophisticated menu and a charming location, Garden Cafe could not be more perfect. I've been many times, out with friends, entertaining the visiting parental units, and just treating myself after a long week at work, and have never been disappointed. The wine selection is not stunning, but supports the menu well, and beer is sold by the bottle - no cocktails or mixed drinks here. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection, the portions are generous, and the desserts are delicious. The chocolate cake is not to be missed!

This place is a gem! The service is great, the food is excellent (try the Chicken Cordon Bleu, one of their specialties - it's out of this world!), and the back patio in the summer is just divine. A great little bistro, and a place where many of us have become regulars. Keep up the great work, Garden Cafe!
