The food is really wonderful. Unique sandwiches, salads, soups, wraps and grilled paninis. I had the K2, which is a turkey and cranberry sauce sandwich. Sounds ordinary but add bree and aioli with a great salad and you begin to understand. The venue is small, the staff super friendly and can be noisy at times.

This place is located in a strip mall in Gardnerville, NV. Had the Curry Sweet Potato soup and Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich. Both were very good. The bread is sliced thick. Would certainly recommend this place. Limited parking and seating. Good service.

Cafe Girasole is not your typical cafe. they have salad or soup for sides, both very good. There sandwich collection is a delicious mix of area favorites and recent fads. There biggest draw backs are there cramped dinning area and limited hours .

If you want to eat some tasty bites, this is the place. Be prepared to sit in tight quarters. Or take out like we did and enjoyed at Lampe Park.

I went here for lunch today on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant is located in a tiny strip mall. The place itself is also tiny- about 12 tables or so. It has cute sunflower decorations and both chairs and ottomans to sit on at the tables. I was quickly greeted and told to sit wherever I liked. The... More

By chance took a short walk from my hotel to find a quick but nutritious meal. With no idea, spotted the cafe and entered. Small but very nice atmosphere - appointment, great sound track playing - but that is not the reason you sit down. The food was outstanding. Prepared quickly and with fresh ingredients. The panini sandwich selection is... More

Cafe Girasole is a stand-by for a delicious lunch of soup, sandwich, and dessert. The best part? There are no slot machines as scenery in this cute cafe!

I eat here fairly often for lunch. The service is always prompt and friendly. The food is delicious! I love the Curried Chicken Sandwich along with the Sweet potato soup. The K2 is the bomb. The grilled vegetable wrap is very filling and satisfying.
