Opened in March 2013, Great Full Gardens Cafe & Eatery in the beautiful Midtown District features a wholesome menu for breakfast, lunch & dinner, full barista services, beer & wine in a casual full service environment. Our restaurant caters to people with specialized dietary needs, such as vegan, gluten-free or Paleo, as well as to the person just looking for great flavor and a menu that is unique and delicious! We are proud to support and feature many items from local vendors and farmers.

In October, 2014 we opened the first Great Full Gardens Express at the University of Nevada, Reno in the Joe Crowley student union. This concept serves students, faculty and guests with the same wholesome food in a Quick Service model.

Great Full Gardens is also the home of GinoTheSoupManSoups.

The GSM soups are made from scratch with the best plant based ingredients. All soups are vegan and most are gluten free. Currently, GSM soups are available for purchase at Whole Foods,Great Basin Co Op, Natural Grocers, Urban Market, and of course, here at Great Full Gardens.
