Though I’ve yet to hit the culinary jackpot at Great Full Gardens, I’ll likely keep returning for the broad menu, virtuous ingredients and because they cater so well to special diets – including dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, vegan and paleo – with ample options for all. Plus, there are two very popular things sold at Great Full Gardens, that I’ve yet to try: GinoTheSoupManSoups (all vegan and created by the owner) and their raw, vegan desserts (made locally).
Great Full Gardens is a nice but casual eatery that is almost always packed (just like the picture shows below!) thanks to their broad menu (serving breakfast, lunch and dinner plus beer and wine) of salads, sandwiches, soups, bowls, and a smattering of more traditional entrees. Plus, they grown many of their own ingredients, source from local farmers as much as possible, highlight organic ingredients, and serve proteins like wild fish.
And the food is good at Great Full Gardens, we just haven’t had a “stellar” meal there as of yet. Most of the dishes do need more seasoning (this is not only from my three experiences there, but also from people I was dining with and a couple other friends who provided feedback) – once both myself and my friend even received salad dressing that was pure oil – nothing else! But the staff is nice, and always eager to fix any issues, and sauces and seasonings are available to jazz things up!
