Minutes after the Dallas city council voted to determine the odd pocket in the county that makes the land where Garden Café resides dry, councilmember Angela Hunt called Mark Wooten to give him the bad news. The tiny farm-to-table café that is open for breakfast and lunch service only would not be able to allow their guests to bring their own beer and wine.
The petition that would have allowed the tiny café the ability to enjoy the same rights as every restaurant in the city was denied by a narrow margin. This also would preclude Garden Cafe from hosting charity events that wish to offer BYOB such as the recent Cafe Momentum project.
The café brings life and joy to the neighborhood. The gardens planted by the café are enjoyed by neighbors, as well as provided playground equipment.
