Downtown lunch place!

The Meeting place has a large sandwich and wrap menu. Also soups, salads and smoothies. The atmosphere is comfy even though the dining area is large. Everything I've tried there was very good.

We were looking for a local coffee house while in Lima and this place was recommended. We arrived and were promptly greeted by the staff behind the counter; we ordered breakfast and coffee(s). The result was high quality coffee and an even better breakfast. A comfortable stop worth finding . . . .

Lima is often criticized for it's "lack of things to do." For these critics, I argue, The Meeting Place is a breath of fresh air. Offering big city culture with small town charm their high quality menu and calm friendly service keep my girlfriend and me coming back each week. I would highly recommend The Meeting Place to anyone who... More

Great wraps and sandwiches, regular and gourmet coffees, plus salads too. They have plenty of seating areas, games and books line the book shelves lending to a warm and inviting place for people to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of these trendy downtown coffee house. Highly recommended.

It's a nice little hometown place to have lunch. I went there with my 20 year old daughter and her friend. They have a large menu of sandwiches, salads and soup, and the selections remind me of Panera only cheaper. College students can get a cup of coffee for 99 cents. I had a chai tea smoothie that was delicious.... More

This is a nice little café with good people watching right on the corner. They have over 100 coffee, tea and espresso combinations with excellent fair trade coffee. The desert case at the register is sure to make your mouth water and don't miss the house made breads and pastas on the shelf behind you. The menu is extensive with... More

I needed to catch-up on work email while traveling, and stopped in the Meeting Place for some coffee and wifi. The coffee was fresh, although self-serve and the wifi was fast. I did not eat here, but the menu of sandwiches looked very good and during the noon hour the line was long and restaurant was packed. I would definitely... More

The Meeting Place is a great downtown spot to meet. They have wonderful coffees, hot chocolate and smoothies. The pastries are very good. the menu is limited, but the items are good. The owners are very committed to the community, which I appreciate.
