I needed lunch brought into work in the Airport Industrial Park. Thought I would give Harvest Thyme a call. I spoke with them the week before to make sure they could deliver lunch for 8 people. They were so friendly and helpful. All my questions were answered and we planned our lunch. I called H.T. the day before the lunch... More

We stop by here for lunch and had a very nice lunch. Steak Hoagie and the Hammy we're both really good and fresh tasting. The homemade hummus very good as well.

High quality local food. Friendly staff. It is a bit overpriced for what it is. Typically charging what you would see in a Manhattan sandwich shop (I know, excessive if trying to lunch on a budget). But alas, there is salvation. They offer one of their delicious sandwiches with a small portion of one of their sides for $5-6 as... More

This is the hidden gem of Gainesville breakfast eateries. Whether your favorite breakfast food is a decked out omelette or a decadent chocolate chip pancake, Harvest Thyme does not disappoint. This restaurant has free wifi, a good atmosphere, and great people.

We use to go to the one downtown and magnolia Park. The food and service has gone down. The soups are always very good. Shame that they aren't like they use to be because it is very convenient. The last two times I went they decided to close early and wouldn't take my order. I was there about an hour... More

The salads are fresh and the bowls filled to overflowing. Might be easier to eat it on a large plate! LOL The sandwiches are loaded and delicious. Unpretentious atmosphere and very personable staff. A great place to meet friends for a nice, affordable lunch!

Stopped here for lunch during a visit to the area for Business/Training. Very good food, I had the Chef Salad and Turkey and Mushroom Soup. The soup was a little disappointing, I guess I was just expecting something different. It was good - just not what I expected. The Salad made up for it, as it was very good -... More

The service was friendly and the food was great. Wife had the Tuna with apple sandwich on gluten free bread and loved it. Daughter had the cheeseburger and was impressed. We decided that Harvest Thyme is our new Sunday lunch spot!

My friend and I had a nice lunch here, each of us did the half and half with soup and a salad or sandwich. You can taste and appreciate the freshness of ingredients. Also the girl taking care of us was very friendly. Good service makes a big difference in my book
