Garden of Eating is excited to announce the opening of our new restaurant, The Garden Cafe. The cafe was the vision of Lisa Hawkins and Ethan Roberts, co-owners of Garden of Eating Catering. “We saw a need for affordable, fresh, and healthy food that is gourmet quality, but that’s also accessible to everyone,” says Lisa. “This has been in the works for awhile, and we’re so excited to share our menu with everyone.”
With a massive menu, there are plenty of reasons to visit The Garden Cafe, but here are a few of our favorites.
1. Fresh, local, and organic ingredients
Garden of Eating and The Garden Cafe are committed to providing only the best, which means that we use local fresh ingredients.
For example, be sure to try our Farmer’s Market Sandwich, made with Granny Smith apples, white cheddar, onion-thyme jam, grainy mustard, and baby greens. If veg isn’t quite your thing, try our Chipotle Gouda Burger, or our “Ragin Reuben” made with corned beef, gruyere cheese, cranberry mustard, and your choice of sauerkraut or arugula.
2. The quality of GOE Catering in a restaurant
For nearly 15 years, Garden of Eating Catering has been proudly serving the local community. We’ve established a reputation over the years for outstanding quality and service in the food industry. We know that the service and presentation you receive when you dine out is just as important as the food that you’re eating. With The Garden Cafe, you don’t have to choose between great service and great food — you can have both!
3. We deliver!
If you can’t make it to our restaurant, we’ll bring the “garden” to you! Within Century City for orders of $10 or more, we’ll gladly bring your lunch to your office so that you don’t have to leave to experience wonderful dining!
4. Fresh-pressed juices and smoothies
Some of our favorite menu items are our fresh-pressed juices made with only the best produce. Fruit juice has been shown to reduce cancer risk, support healthy digestion, and improve your immune system. Combine that with our delicious juices and smoothies and you have a great option for breakfast, lunch, or a quick snack when you’re on the go.
Try our “We Got the Beet,” made with beets, apple, lemon, and ginger, or “The Plaza’s Green Giant,” made with kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple, and lemon.
5. Email us your order.
In a hurry? We totally understand. Healthy fresh food doesn’t have to take forever. Simply email us your order directly, wait for your confirmation email, and your food will be ready for pickup when you arrive. Perfect for office lunches, a quick stop between appointments, or lunch in the park.
The Garden Cafe is located just off of Santa Monica Boulevard on lobby level at 1840 Century Park East. We have seating both indoors and on an outdoor patio and validated parking. We will be opening Monday, November 3rd!
