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.

Really enjoy their variety of sandwiches and even the desserts. Love the mint iced tea. The staff is overall nice, but doesn't go out of their way to be friendly or helpful. Recently they switched to at the table service and it basically adds 15% to your bill and you can pretty much get your own food off the counter... More

We had heard many good things about this place, so on sunday morning we decided to go there. It was early morning for Sunday and weather was good, so we sat outside. I ordered a cup of milk for my toddler, and they brought her milk in a coffee paper cup. The lid was wild open so we didn't try... More

The staff, environment and FABULOUS food is what makes Uptown Cafe. You feel like you are sitting down to eat with your family every time you walk through the door. Don't visit Tallahassee without stopping in to see Fred and the gang.

I've been a Tallahassee resident for about 7 years and was so relieved to find this place. The food is delicious and affordable, but what makes this place even more special are the people who work there. I often find the owner there greeting everyone with a smile. You can tell he runs a great establishment by the smiles on... More

If you find yourself visiting anyone in Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and you don't know where to go for lunch without giving up your parking place, you have to try the Uptown Cafe, within walking distance of the front entrance to the hospital. Locally owned and run, it is open for breakfast and lunch and have a wonderful selection of o... More

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
