One of the best restaurants in Gilroy is Café Thyme. It rivals any upscale restaurant currently in Morgan Hill which says a lot. The quality of the food is distinctive, very fresh, and surprisingly upscale for Gilroy. The only drawback is the location. I read a review of the restaurant in the Gilroy Dispatch and set out to find it which wasn’t easy. It’s located in a very nondescript strip mall on First Street. The cuisine is definitely California farm to table fresh cuisine.
I’ve been there several times over the last six months primarily for lunch and once for dinner and have not been disappointed. The menu changes depending on the season. Recently we ordered the Kale Chicken Caesar and the Cajun Prawn Sliders with Roasted Potatoes. Both dishes were amazing. They don’t have a liquor license yet but in the process of receiving one. All of the Yelp reviews that I’ve read have been positive.
So, we’re giving a shout out to Café Thyme because Gilroy seems to have a history of not supporting its restaurants. So come on people spread the word about Café Thyme.
