Just barely passable pizza.

Barely passable pizza. It's airport food so don't expect to be wowed by either the food or the price.

We had to pay in advance and wait for 30 minutes for a salad and a sandwich. Unacceptable for an airport restaurant. Avoid at any price!!!!

I was flying out of A8 so stopped here for food and a glass of wine. I ordered the fish and chips for $16. It was disgusting. Bland, greasy, and gross. The wine was also not good. Would not recommend this place to anyone.

International Terminal Cafe provides buzzers with your order so you'll know to go to the counter. I waited over 30 minutes for my "10 minute" order. Finally left my carry-on at table and walked the 15 feet to the register to find out what the delay was. Cashier said they thought maybe my buzzer was out of order and had... More

I ordered the protein box with an egg, vegetable, almonds, grapes and cheese cubes. All taste good. Fruit and greens are fresh. Cheese is well-selected and goes well with all the other items. The portion is also bigger than the inflight snack box.

Poorly cooked food, bad presented, careless staff, dirty tables, plastic cutlery. I should have waited to board the plane, compared to this, it would have looked like a Michelin-starred meal. Run away and get a sandwich instead, waste of time any money, I regret I've left a tip here.

when at an airport it is usually many choices and most of them fast food of some kind or other. This food is quick, serviceable and large enough that we shared it. We had an egg, potato scramble...

If you're looking for the perfect thin margherita pizza, Firewood Cafe is the place. The brick oven pizza was delicious and tasty. Also, the price was right. The quality food was welcomed especially, if you're on the run at the airport.

I ate here for breakfast on a layover from Hawaii. I ordered a sausage scramble. It could have been good, but it was basically flavorless and barely warm. And, of course, over-priced!

We wanted to get a meal before boarding our flight, and I was pleasantly surprised. We got the margherita pizza and the vegetable pizza, but preferred the margherita. They were glad to give you a cup of ice water if requested.
