  • Bill, Vicki and Clay Porter have been the owner-operators of “Garden Center Café & Grill” for the past 20 years. Their passion for food and friends are distinct features of Fallbrook’s finest Restaurant. There is a sign over the entry door saying,  “Enter as Strangers, Leave as Friends.”  Having lived in Fallbrook for 32 years, many of their guests are long time friends.  Their staff is a vital part of the warm environment.  Several employees have been part of the restaurant since the beginning and many of the guests consider them truly a part of their family. Their son Clayton has been an integral part of the restaurant throughout the 22 years. He is now the General Manager as the family has acquired another Fallbrook restaurant, "El Jardin."  Clay's enthusiasm and passion for the restaurant, along with his education in the business since he was quite young,  is a vital asset to the cafe.  Tammie Faught  is often a key person you see managing, as well as being part of our wait staff.  Her growing knowledge of the business and love for her long time guests, is an essential part of our business.  
  • The Porters consider themselves blessed being able to continue their passion for the restaurant business here in Fallbrook. They love the community and the people. God willing, they can live and work in paradise forever,
