“Welcome surprise!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Fox Pass Pottery recommended this restaurant. And, he was spot on. This restaurant is uber clean and the menu was perfect. I eat "clean" and they have so many options it made my head spin. I opted for the chicken cobb salad & was pleasantly surprised at the jicama and other veggies in my salad. The apple ginger tea was out of this world! I can't imagine another trip to Hot Springs without eating at Cafe 1217 :-)

The food is excellent, fresh and there are tons of options! Such a cool atmosphere! It's a great place for a date, to meet a friend for lunch, or to run in and grab something to go! Affordable prices and quality food!

“Wedding Rehearsal Dinner”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Café 1217 catered my son's wedding rehearsal dinner at Quapaw Bath House, Hot Springs, AR. Diana had the task of providing a meal for a vegan bride and a meat and potato groom. We had approximately 50 guests and Café 1217 presented a selection of foods that suited everyone's taste. Even the vegan dishes were enjoyed by our meat and potato groom!

“Unique, surprising find in Hot Springs”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Once you tire of fried food, burgers, and manufactured chain restaurant meals make a visit here for truly great food. Salads are varied, seafood and sandwiches are enjoyable, and service is attentive and well informed about the menu. All breads are offered in gluten free options as are many desserts - a nice and appreciated option!
