Stopped there for lunch based on the TA reviews. The food was definitely fresh. We ate sandwhiches which may not be their forte' because they were at best average. We did see a lot of good looking salads come out of the kitchen. We may go back and try one of those one day.

Well it was a Saturday at lunchtime and although the courteous host seated us at a lovely two top outside, no one visited us with menus or asked to take a drink order for a full 15 minutes until we flagged down the gal busing tables. She said she would check on it. A server came and asked if we... More

My first visit to the Garden Cafe. There were three of us and only one was satisfied. The kitchen was very slow. Had to return a burger that was not cooked correctly. The Pastrami sandwich was between cold and warm (was supposed to be steamed?). Restaurant is very over rated.

I visit Sebring several times a year but didn't know this place existed. It truly is a garden. When the weather is right you are eating under a covered breezeway surrounded by plants and flowers. The food is good and they strike the right balance between freshly prepared and quick service. This is a mom and pop restaurant that strikes... More

very friendly and attentive, the soup we had was delicious, and it has turned into my nieces favorite place to lunch when she visits from the Midwest.

This unassuming but precious garden cafe is worth traveling off the beaten path to visit in Sebring, FL. The menu offered a delectable smattering of home made soups, original sandwiches and fresh salads all with a hint of Latin spices and heat (if requested). Lolly McLane (the owner for over 27 years) waited on us weary travelers and shared her... More

A great setting nestled in plenty of plants. Inside eating with basically no walls so a good breeze on the day we visited. The owner and staff were very friendly and you leave knowing you made their acquaintance. The food was pretty good but a bit overpriced for the amount you receive. The ambiance makes up for it and I... More

Description
Scott and Lolly Mclane, owners of Mclane's Country Garden, have been serving customers by creating beautiful landscapes and providing quality plants to the Sebring area for the last twenty years. The beautiful setting of our nursery always seemed like a nice place to sit down and have a bite to eat. Seeing a need for a nice outdoor dining location in the Sebring area, and an enthusiasm for delicious home cooking, the Garden Cafe at Mclane's Country Garden was opened to the public in December 2011. Specializing in cafe bistro fare, customers have enjoyed our delicious quiche, specialty sandwiches, and homemade desserts. Mclane's Country Garden is proud to give our customers this new beautiful dining option, while remaining one of the best landscape nurseries in the Highlands County area.
