We have stopped here at least 2 dozen times on our way up and down the coast, and we are ALWAYS delighted that we stopped! Coffee, tea, wine, sandwiches, salads, cookies, anything you can think of, they have it, deliciously prepared and artfully presented! We enjoy sitting on the patio, and browsing the plants and garden art. They have unique... More

This is one of our favourite lunch venues. You can eat at a range of shaded tables surrounded by lots of fun succulent planters and water fountains. You have to line up 'cafeteria style' to order from a wide menu of sandwiches and salads. After a short wait this delicious food is brought to your table by the friendly staff.... More

We grabbed an early morning coffee and mufffns and enjoyed them on the sunny patio garden in the rear. The staff were friendly and the garden was filled with succulents, nice plantings, birds and a warm atmosphere. We were so glad that we did a U-turn and stopped and sent in...a pleasant surprise!

Had a very nice lunch and sat on the patio. You order at the counter and then the food is delivered to our table. The food was delicious and the portions were large.

Beautiful back garden setting with lots of displays and plants. RETAIL area is quite extensive and they want you to purchase ! which makes it a bit uncomfortable. The food is normally quite good, and they offer organic and natural choices. Quite impressive. Tailored more to the Money peoples, Retired and Celebrity Persons of our Area ! Having said that…...

This is a small place, outdoor seating in a Garden setting. Food is better than some of the other options on the street.

We have been coming here for breakfast nearly every weekend for 5 years. The staff is small and friendly. We split the reasonably priced breakfast burrito - no meat add avocado. Add a couple cups of coffee and tip and we are out only $17. I have made it a game to find the best breakfast burrito in the Santa... More

We've been coming to the Garden Market for 8 years and will continue to. The sandwiches are flawless and the setting with proximity to the beach and their garden is perfect.
