7 reviews of The Garden Cafe in English
The cafe is lovely, the food is good too but the actual experience leaves much to be desired. The staff I experienced today were two of the grumpiest uninterested people I have ever met in a cafe. I'm afraid good veggie food and a nicely decorated cafe are not enough for me to return. I asked for a portion of vegan ice-cream and all I got grunted at me was "no". I said it's on your menu and I got another "no" so I presume they had run out!. I'd suggest they are perhaps in the wrong industry and would be better suited to not being customer faced.
A well established business in Frome with a well established veggie menu and a specials board.
The food is generally consistent, well produced, tasty and well presented. Good coffee and if the weather is nice, a lovely terraced garden to sit in, which is blighted only by the smokers.
The only problem sometimes is the odd sullen staff member, but this is not a consistent issue.
This cafe is awful, the food and the actual cafe are lovely, unfortunately the staff in my experience have all been very unfriendly not greeted me or anyone I have been in with as though we have ever been there before time and time again! the cafe seem to employ woman of a certain age and hair colour! with attitude problems and a lack of understanding that they are there to make your experience....well pleasant in any way other wise we may as well make our own coffee at home!
My partner popped in today to grab me a panini (I didnt know he was going to the garden cafe or I would have told him not to bother!) and after a long wait (whilst she filled salt and pepper pots up!) and no acknowledgment from anyone, he was asked "what do you want" whilst the girl continued to use a very loud coffee machine, He asked for a panini three times before she could hear him and was told they had never heard of a panini!!! and gave him a toasted cheese sandwich! dont bother going here goto Divas its lovely and the garden, food and service is so much better!
Wander around Frome and enjoy it's back street independent shops, then look for somewhere to eat for lunch and start to panic. There's really not much choice, particularly if you're after quality or even just vegetarian. What a wonderful surprise then to stumble upon this side-street café. A friendly welcome, a cosy seat and simply exceptional food, with all ingredients locally sourced and prepared to order. It's now worth travelling to Frome just for lunch here!
Service is good and when you walk in they are friendly. What I like is I have been there twice with my boyfriend and they remembered us the second time. I had the Thai Bean Burger, it was really nice, lots of it. I also had chocolate cake fresh and rich.
There is also an outside area, I didn’t eat outside as it was cold and in the winter time but I would recommend if you’re looking for a place to eat / have a coffee pop in here.
This is my sort of place. Veggie cafe with vegan options but I know meat-eaters who love it too! Great food, cosy place with lots of little tables inside, some in nooks and crannies and others outside in their pretty garden (lots of shade). I ate a Thai burger last time with chips and salad. Good cakes and startes too. Big flavours. Prices are ok, just as you’d expect in a place like this. You order at the counter. Staff can be a bit grumpy but it always makes me giggle. It’s relaxed, so I don’t mind. All sorts of yummy drinks as well.
Outside on the wall is a huge board where local artisans and therapists and musicians post cards. Good place to look for local events and it reflects the buzzing creative atmosphere that Frome has. Frome has good and interesting shops, including a brilliant independent bookshop (really good for children’s books, amongst other things) and a fantastic deli and up the windy cobble street that winds steeply uphill, lots of interesting antique shops and clothes shops with original articles of clothing.
