This is one of the best sandwich spots in Richmond. The desserts are amazing too! It's a tiny little spot right in the fan, perfect for a low key date night, or a quick bite with a friend. All of their sandwiches are great but the Bon Vivant is out of this world.

This is a very small restaurant- mostly sandwiches and salads. Great service and yummy food! Great for lunch. No big tables.

We walked here from the Scotts addition area, little cafe like sandwich and salad shop in the fan district. I had a hot sandwich with some short of delectable gravy served on top. They have gluten free bread for the sandwiches. Also had a good salad. Pleasant surprise they were even storing some GF desserts. Good service.

Just got home from my third delicious meal at this Fan delight and decided to share. I've been to lunch twice and to dinner once and each time was very pleased with the menu and presentation. Garnett's is unpretentious but very polished. It's a sandwich shop (I will elevate it to "shoppe") and I do love a good sandwich! The... More

I absolutely love Garnett's Café. It's located in the heart of the Fan district and, in my opinion, has some of the best old fashioned sandwiches in Richmond. Also, let's not forget about their delicious sweet tea and scrumptious cakes. Meadow park is located right across the street so you can lounge around there after you load your belly up... More

We live just steps away and I have visited many times in the past 2 years. Food is always good. Service is friendly. We always feel welcome even if it's just for a piece of their superb cakes or pies. A real delight for us!

Garnett's Cafe is in the middle of a residential neighborhood a block off of Monument Avenue in Richmond. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The food is outstanding, the service is friendly, and the atmosphere is really laid back. If you're a sweet tea fan, try the mint infused sweet tea! The... More

Stoed by to eat lunch. Didn't have to wait, even tho there are so few tables. There's one server, and one person behind the cunter. It's a tiny place. I had the Tuna Nicoise Salad. It came in a huge bowl, with undressed tina in the center, and servings of marinated green beans, kalamata olives, French potato salad, and hard-boiled... More

We came from the Ukrops 10K expo and wanted to eat lunch nearby. We selected this restaurant from the nice TripAdvisor reviews and weren't disappointed. It is a cozy space in a residential neighborhood with only about seven tables but it has two sections with bar-type dining. We got there around noon and had our pick of several of the... More
