Food was fine. Had a sandwich with salad and chili. Chili was tasty. Bread was fresh but overall sandwich was just ok. Salad dressing was too thick. 3.5 out of 4.

Garden Deli is hidden under the cool shade of its trademark weeping willow tree on Burnsville's historic Town Square. We offer a lush garden setting for outside dining either under our tree, or under a covered deck 6 months out of the year. We also offer a full-size dining room inside with natural wood walls, hand-made lanterns, and oil paintings of local landscapes. We have a fireplace and a cozy atmosphere during the colder months, as we are open year-round.
