Good fresh food and friendly atmosphere

We've eaten at uptown for many years and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and good food. The salmon smoked on site is an unusual and tasty treat. Good reubens, greek wrap press, black bean press wrap is a favorite.

It has been interesting to watch this place evolve since the 1970s from it's downtown perch on College Avenue to its present digs diagonally across from the hospital. The biggest and best change was the addition of a full breakfast served until closing. This place has always had a bit of an alternative culture feel to it, much in the... More

Uptown Cafe is a home to great food, but the owners are socially conscious too. The Beth's Veggie Grits Bowl with an egg over medium is my favorite breakfast. The curried egg salad is delicious and unique, but any salad is made better with a little house made Cafe Dressing. It's a combination of thousand islandy-blue cheesy. Oh so good!... More

Our first time to Uptown Cafe. Lunch was wonderful! The Option sandwich was beyond delicious. Turkey with garlic dill mayo, avocado, tomatoes and Swiss. Husband loved the BT salad with the smoked salmon. Mint tea also very good. A breakfast, brunch and lunch place open until 3. It was quite busy with a lot of takeout orders. We sat inside... More

This was the best corned beef hash I have ever had - as a CBH evaluator, best since Crossings near Spearfish Canyon, South Dakota... They prepare all ingredients separately and combine them in presentation on the plate - if you are thinking of the normal Hormel from a can meld of potatoes, beef, etc, this is not the place. Others... More

Fantastic food. I ordered the Pesto Scram and substituted a cinnamon roll for toast. The cinnamon roll was the best I have ever had warmed to perfection and shared by all :). The Pesto Scram is scrambled eggs with pesto including a delicate addition of artichoke, topped with tomatoes, spinach and feta.

Wait staff was nice. Wrap sandwich was average and came with chips. Mint tea was different and enjoyable. Bathroom was filthy.

Great place for casual lunch. We had the tuna melt, turkey melt and the chicken wrap. All very good. The unsweetened tea was delicious with a minty flavor and needed no sugar. Everything tasted fresh and service was very quick. I was unhappy with paying $8 for a sandwich with no sides, not even slaw or anything. You could pay... More
