new york - woodstock - garden cafe

The Garden Cafe is located in Woodstock NY & it is an amazing place. I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere & once the food came I fell in love with that too. There were so many delicious things on the menu & can't wait to go back!

Their Philosophy...
We are passionate about using fresh, organic, local and high quality ingredients at the Garden Cafe on the Green as well as using ingredients that are cruelty free to animals as we do not use animal products or any other products that cause pain and suffering. Our menu is a reflection of this as it is created from products that are as pure, organic and natural as possible. Choosing the simplest ingredients…whole grains, beans, soy foods, fruits and vegetables, we add inspiration and creativity. Our wish is to bring to the table food that will support our personal, community and global health as well as our local farmers and producers. We use no preservatives, chemicals, trans fats or genetically engineered products. All of our food is carefully and conscientiously made from scratch to provide delicious, nourishing and balanced meals.

Love this dream catcher, it's inspiring me to make one of my own.

One of my favorite moments from our time at the Garden Cafe was discovering this drawer. We choose a table at random & we sat down at random. While we were waiting for our food to arrive I looked down & noticed a drawer, so I opened it & found a wonderful surprise. The drawer was filled with mementos from since the cafe first opened, scraps of paper each written on by customers...some were drawings, others quotes, there were stories, & lots of bits of wisdom. They were so fun to read & some were really inspiring.  We all left one before we left :)
Below are some of my favorites...

Up cycled instruments.

We all split the appetizer special, which was a Lentil Pecan Pate with Sage...sooo good

Our meals...
Mine is the one that's closest, I got the Indian Vegetable & Chickpea Enchiladas with Bombay Sauce plus curried apple coconut salad & sauteed greens on the side...it is one of the best meals I've ever had, so delicious.
