Over priced very bland food! I left still hungry from the tiny portions served. The wait time for the food was ridiculous. I wont be back!

My husband and I got a couple of sandwiches to go. The Crusader Club and the Italian Wrap. The ingredients were so fresh and the flavors were amazing. The focaccia bread was incredible! The potato salad was delicious as well. We will definitely be returning. Our only complaint is that they are closed on Saturdays.

Visited the Crusader Cafe for lunch. I ordered a salad featuring sliced pears, pecans and a scoop of chicken salad on lettuce. It was a very modest scoop for the price ($7.25) and the lettuce used was nothing unusual. It wasn't served with a roll or other accompaniment. My husband ordered a pressed sandwich.

Came for breakfast on a Sunday morning. We were the only ones there. There are only around 3 tables inside and around 4-5 more in the entry hallway. The breakfast was by no means anything special. Maybe their sandwiches are better. I would definitely not go back for breakfast. Overpriced too.

The food is so amazing you can taste the love in the food. It is a sweet and quaint little place that has the best orange juice that is really fresh squeezed.Everything on the menu is wonderful you can't go wrong. This is our favorite Sunday place to eat with the family.

This Cafe was wonderful, The historical building that has this cafe inside was very inviting. The food was great, very fresh tasting and leaves you wanting to hurry back! The service was great also, very friendly and helpful! Looks like I found my new lunch place!

I do not know which is hotter, the food or the gorgeous ladies that prepare it. The food is the very best and I love going there for lunch.
