Just had lunch with a girlfriend, and oh, what a nice surprise. Had no idea what to expect. The ambience was unique to say the least. The service was fantastic, and the food, I can't say enough about the food. It was, by far, the best meal we've had in years. Great salads and desserts. All the food out of... More

If you are even within an hour of the hidden gem, go there ! The food is outstanding and the place is gorgeous. Situated in what looks like just a normal greenhouse place. Surrounded by plants and gifts. Truly a special place. The owner is so friendly.

Sandwiches, soups, entrees; all scrumptious! Service is fast and very personable - don't expect formal aloofness. The restaurant is tucked inside of and among a garden center in Olde Towne Portsmouth, VA. Quaint and really good. No alcohol, but you don't always need the extra lubrication . . .

This is a fun place with delicious food. There is so much to look at while you're eating. Everything you see, you can buy. Once you find it, you will enjoy it. GPS will get you there. Great place to go and have lunch.

My fiance and I stopped for lunch on the way to Virginia Beach. We had a private table and the owner stopped by to make sure we were happy with the food and service. Both were excellent. The tuna wrap and turkey grill were excellent. They were decorated for Christmas with many items for sale. They also have a nursery... More

I discovered Green Bean cafe by accident, but it's my "go to" place if I want to surprise family & friends with a unique dining experience. The entire staff treats you like a dear friend, the food is consistently delicious, & the atmosphere can't be beat. I've learned to trust the owner's recommendations of foods I wouldn't normally eat, and... More

Not well signed, so look carefully or you may pass it by. Expected to be sitting in a garden shop but instead the cafe is inside of a charming gift shop filled with very eclectic items. The food was amazing. The cheese-steak on a grilled roll with mozzarella and the ham with Brie and raspberry jam panini were both strange... More
