Different menu items, which is something I enjoy more than my husband! Interesting dishes to choose from but a little higher priced than what we expected. Still, not too bad.

I've been to Cafe 1217 about five times now and it is always a treat. The variety is excellent, everything is fresh, and I always leave satisfied. My favorite is the sample salad! The white cheese poblano chicken salad is also awesome.

I visit Hot Springs about twice a year, and each time I go, I hit the Cafe 1217 for lunch at least once (if not more)!! The food is THAT good!

I came here with my wife and two kids. My wife got an entree salad which was delicious! I got the chicken pot pie which was pretty good except some of the romaine lettuce on the side was a little wilted (but still tasted delicious, surprisingly).

Everything was so unique in flavor. We ate dinner here and returned for lunch the next day. It was that good! The four vegetables option was more than enough food.

My friend stopped by on her way to Little Rock. Came to this place for lunch. It was easy to make a selection since they were displayed; you can see actual size of portion per serving. Food was great.

While visiting Hot Springs we "lucked" out and found this great restaurant with delicious food. You can dine in or take it home.Everything is freshly made and so yummy. We wanted to go back while we were there, but the line was so long and we decided to go elsewhere.
