We stopped in for lunch. (mistake) Two waitresses and two customers were in the place, we made three. The 2 waitresses had the biggest sour puss on I'd ever seen. It wasn't like - Hi, glad to see you welcome. It was more like - What do you want, why are you here. So OK we get seated, I ask... More

All we had was a pizza and a Caesar salad. Only ate 2 pieces of entire pizza. Salad very mediocre. Thankful we didn't spend any more money.

Quiet breakfast in the greenhouse. Surrounded with plants and soft music. Enjoyed pancake, bacon, egg, fruit cup. Real maple syrup! Wow! Very nice wait staff and tasty food. Relaxing and perfect.

We visited Greenhouse for dinner with two children -good sized portions on all dishes.The children's menu had many selections and reasonably priced. Very good service. Would recommend and will return. We asked for crispy fries and they were cooked perfectly!

This cafe is pleasing to the eye -- a nice place to sit for a very good meal. My wife is gluten-free, so she appreciated the large selection of gluten-free items (appetizers and entrees). Staff are experienced, friendly and efficient. This is a nice place to put on your list of places to eat during your LBI stay.

My daughter and I wanted to go somewhere that we could walk to so we decided to go here if after reading the reviews on trip advisor. We weren't disappointed.

Clam appetizer done almost Rockefeller style and was fantastic. Manhattan clam chowder is consistent here for the last 10 years at least- always great. Had a pasta entree and it was a large portion and cooked as advertised (All portions are large). They do not have a liquor license so BYOB. Overall a good spot to have a meal in... More

We visited this little cafe twice on vacation and really enjoyed the food we had. The breaded chicken sandwich was simple and satisfying. Take-out orders were packaged nicely with all the condiments and sides you could want. Great menu options for those with gluten allergies. Extremely friendly staff on the phone and in person.
