We went for breakfast, so it was pretty basic, nothing special or out of the ordinary, it hit the spot. The decor is just funny though, lots of old faded fake flowers everywhere. they really are consistent with the garden theme, it just really needs sprucing up and maybe something to pull them out of the early 90's rut it...

This is a great local cafe that makes a wide variety of delicious breakfast dishes. One of my favorites is the Mediterranean omelet, but the pancakes, egg dishes, and hash browns are also excellent. I love the breakfasts so much I've never tried any lunch dishes, which they also offer. The prices are moderate and the service consistently good.

Ate breakfast with my wife and father in law and as usual we enjoyed a great breakfast! The portions were huge not like Denny's where they skimp on how much they give you. Great home town atmosphere, clean unlike Denny's in Manteca where it is dirty(inside & out)

Often come after church on Sunday for breakfast. All the usual fare in generous portions. Love the skillets. Pancakes are big and good.

My Garden is the bomb! The food is always good and the portions are large. If you are worried about your weight, don't go here unless you go workout afterwords. Or don't eat it all there like I usually do and regret it. Take the rest to go in a box and eat it later. The waitresses are very friendly... More

If you enjoy a hearty breakfast with tasty sausage gravy, My Garden Cafe is the place. The cafe location is excellent and the waitresses know how to treat customers. The menu is extensive and prices are very reasonable. Be prepared to request a doggie bag; plates are large and food is piled high. They close at 2pm daily so plan... More

We ate lunch here. The clientele was mostly older people, but they welcomed our young family. Service was good, the adults enjoyed soup and salad and the kids enjoyed soup & grilled cheese on sourdough.

Food was good but the service wasn't as good. We went there after getting our yearly lab work. Since we hadn't eaten anything we were hungry. The place wasn't busy. I think two other couples were finishing up. It was about 1030. Anyhow, the waitresses were arguing whose turn it was to help us. Then one was saying she was... More
