“Locate on Malvern Avenue and named for its street address, Cafe 1217 is THE lunch spot in Hot Springs. Their menu is chef-inspired and full of healthy gourmet options. To keep things really interesting and fresh, the menu changes monthly to highlight seasonal foods. This is a wonderful place to eat in or call and get to-go food for an afternoon hike/picnic or afternoon on the lake. They do serve early dinners but close at 6 PM.”
