I dined for lunch with a co-worker in the Spring. It was such a cute location and very good food. If she had not suggested Fanny's I would not have known it existed. So glad we went. I will definitely return.

It is only open for lunch. There was a nice collection of salads and sandwiches.The daily quiche was bacon. It was served with the house salad that included dried cranberries and nuts. The house dressing was excellent. I was very happy with the meal and setting. It is a cottage on the grounds of the Goodwood Museum. Each room is... More

Food is always good as is the atmosphere. I have been here often enough to have to comment on service which is poor. It takes too long for entrees and checks to arrive. But...the reason to go is not speed. However, it should be a concern.

I have had multiple dishes at Fanny's and it never disappoints! It is located at beautiful Goodwood Museum, near the gardens, so while you eat at the small café you are surrounded by natural beauty. Perfect for a sunny afternoon in Tallahassee!

Had a quaint lunch at Fanny's with a group of southern ladies. Full of southern charm, from the menu and local art to the outside seating. We sat inside because it was August. I ordered the BLT with a fried green tomato. Yum. Everyone's plate looked delicious and was served with a deviled egg and pickled okra. Portions were generous... More

Upon my recent retirement, a friend invited me to celebrate with lunch at Fanny's Garden Cafe. This restaurant is tucked away on Goodwood Plantation among beautifully maintained gardens and gorgeous old oaks. The food is wonderful, the service was especially attentive with details regarding menu as well as the Plantation itself. I was blessed with other invitations to lunch before... More

We toured the house and gardens, and had lunch here. Good decision. Not a fancy place, but homey, and the service was courteous and pleasant. Soups and sandwiches are all good, as are the teas and coffees. We had the Pesto Turkey and Chicken Brie as pressed sandwiches. Lots of original art on the walls. The rooms are small (this... More

Fanny's is housed in a former guest cottage on an 1800s plantation in the heart of Tallahassee. The setting is lovely year-round. The staff is gracious and well-versed on the menu, which changes a bit from day to day. Fare - primarily sandwiches, quiches, soups and salads - is fresh and imaginative. Servings are generous but, if you have room,... More

Great spot to catch up with old friends and enjoy a good meal. Peaceful surroundings, relaxed atmosphere. I recommend their chicken salad sandwich with a side of fresh fruit and brownie pie for dessert.
