Respond to Review of Garden Cafe
Review: The chef and his wife own and operate the Garden Cafe with the mission of creating food that can be enjoyed by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Make no mistake - the flavor and texture are all there and then some. While most of the menu is Chinese; serving vegetable dishes with and without meat substitutes as well as tofu; one can also find western entrees such as Harvest Burgers, pasta dishes, Three Bean Rice, portabella sandwich and the best of the best, in my opinion, mushroom with vegetables which is sort of like a fragrant, thick portabella mushroom stew with the most extraordinary flavor. This is one of the original recipes served that requires an hours-long broth preparation to achieve a unique sweet vegetable taste. This is the restaurant of choice among many of our family and friends because any palate can be pleased at Garden Cafe. This glowing review isn't because I hold stock in the restaurant. Rather a vegetarian that loves to dine out with friends at an establishment where the food is carefully prepared and everyone can be pleased with the selections. The location is convenient, just to the west of downtown on Highway 50. One aside: If you are a vegetarian you know the frustration of trying to explain to wait staff that sea life and meat broths aren't vegetables. Here you know that the only flesh to darken the door will be you, your guests and the friendly staff at Garden Cafe.
