By far, Global Cafe has the best coffee in downtown Lawrence. The menu of "scrambles" is top rate. Service is excellent.

I reviewed them once long ago rather positively. Now, I'm thinking they're dipping the other direction. While I find their food good, their service seems to have become terrible. We went in twice in the last year, and both times, our servers took forever to do anything--from putting in our order to payment. The last time we were there was... More

I am regular at Global Cafe! While I really like the atmosphere, the energy, the menu and the overall character of the place, what keeps me coming back is their eggs! They source them locally, and they are cruelty free. Not only does that come out in the taste of what they serve, I feel good about consuming eggs from... More

Global is a nice breakfast/lunch place. The food is basically American with a nice Latin American lean. The menu has a lot of variety. The breakfast burrito is my favorite.

I went for breakfast while on a visit to Lawrence. It's not a fancy place, but has a very comfortable feel to it. Everything on the menu sounded delicious, with a variety of items that should appeal to just about anyone. The waitress was very friendly and clearly knew her stuff. Much of the menu appeared to be prepared from... More

Unique foods like arepas and the best green chile sauce. Find your arepa and get a side of green chile. Pancakes and normal breakfast is available.

Had brunch at this place on a Wednesday the 17th of June, were very few people in the resturant, my waiter was GREAT. Pancakes, their short stack (2) were the size of an average dinner plate, very thick and hearty. One scrambled egg was as much as three in some places, ham was good. I didn't eat again until that...

One of many atmospheric local hangouts on Lawrence's Massachusetts Street. I had the Kansas vegetable pressed sandwich. This is a great sandwich with creamy goat cheese. I appreciate that they give you tons of choices for the side that comes with your sandwich: soup, green salad, breakfast potatoes, black bean salad, etc. etc. The HVAC of the building doesn't seem...
