This cafe primarily serves salads and sandwiches. Try their signature salad. It is a flavorful salad with fruit that is very satisfying. This cafe also makes Carolina Blue frosted cupcakes and an assortment of other deserts. They have a wide selection of breads to choose from for your sandwiches as well. Try the tomato bread...yum yum! If you want to... More

Lots to choose from at the counter so if you don't like feeling rushed, you may want to decide what you want to eat before hand. Fresh bread and hot soup. Love the tomato soup and croutons and sunflower bread. Really like the green iced tea too. Bakery items looks good too!

Fiesta Salad is the best on the menu. Big portions and the salad dressing is very unique,with a slight kick. Staff is nice and place stays pretty clean in spite of a big rush at lunch time.

Cafe Carolina is consistently good. Very good sandwich selection, soups and salads. Even at a busy lunch hour, they are quick and still prepare a great lunch selection. A favorite place to go.

If you love fresh baked goods made on site daily and that are not overly priced, then you'll love Carolina Bakery, because it's just that good.

This place is great for the lunch and dinner crowd but you must go for breakfast and make sure to order the sweet potato and ham biscuits. They come with two per order and you will want to eat both!

My wife and I visited Cafe Carolina yesterday morning. We wanted something a little nicer than Dunkin Donuts and something different from Starbucks. Cafe Carolina fit the bill quite well. Located in the ever expanding and eclectic Cameron Village, Cafe Carolina is a very quaint, clean well-run restaurant and bakery. The service was friendly (although a tad bit slow), the... More
