This Old East Dallas cafe is exactly what you’d expect from a neighborhood restaurant. There are chicken-salad sandwiches, turkey melts and meatloaf. There are eggs and bacon and pancakes and other breakfast items, served all day like every good cafe should. They have fresh fruit, fresh drip coffee and fresh baked desserts too. What you might not expect is an interesting decor with exposed brick, hanging lights and custom booths. Or the full garden out back that’s complete with raised beds and live chickens. And there’s a coffee machine that might cost more than the car you drove to get here. Hopefully you didn’t have to drive to the Garden Cafe, though. Tucked away on a quiet neighborhood street in Junius Heights, this restaurant is a local gem, and most of the patrons surrounding you are neighbors who have walked here.
