This place does not disappoint. I had the Avocado sandwich with their home made Chicken Taco Soup. Wow, was it fantastic. My friends love the Quiche and raved about their meals. Beautiful surroundings, Great service. You Must Make Reservations.

Found this place in old downtown. It's in a garden setting and beautiful. The food was excellent and the service was pretty good for all of the crowd that they were serving.

There were 10 in our group and everyone had something different off the menu. Good meals all round. Very pleasant staff and we loved the outdoor atmosphere. Be sure to book reservations. It's gets busy on the weekends.

This is an outside restaurant. It is a patio setting on different levels. The food was good. A little pricey, but the ambiance was worth it.

A great place for kids & adults who enjoy eating outdoors & like being entertained by the birds. Recommend the oatmeal pancakes & I love their spiced tea.

This is behind the Sangunetti house, there are cute shops around the cafe and birds in cages around the cafe, it is very nice to go to and enjoy your surroundings. I imagine, not so fun when it is 120 degrees but in December, it was great! I had the quiche and it was OK, it came with an excellent... More

A different type of restaurant for Yuma. Multi level, cosy, pretty and seasonal. The service is excellent. Felt like we were sitting in someone's back yard. It was a little cool but the outdoor heaters made my visit quite comfortable. I loved the tri tip salad; such a huge portion that I took half of it home.

Yummy garden salad and healthier options and it is vegan. Homemade sourdough bread was delicious, too.

My cousin and I stopped here on our way from Phoenix to San Diego and Yuma is the 1/2 way point and lunch time. This is a seasonal place, it closes in the summer, of course ! Yuma in the summer would not be good for outside eating. We did not call for reservation but were able to get in... More

We wandered into this little hidden gem, which is located in old town Yuma, and we're delighted that we found it. The prices are very reasonable, the staff are quick, helpful, professional and friendly. The Tortilla soup was savory without being hot. My mother in law had an avocado sandwich, which I sampled, that was delicious and well presented. My... More
