Always fresh. Staff are all very courteous. Dressing options are numerous. Love the creative names of the salads. I almost always get the Flank Sinatra, Arizona or a fruity summer salad. My husband gets the Longhorn every time. I almost always order a portobello bisque to go for lunch at work the next day. It's amazing- I've looked for recipes... More

The food was ok and the service was ok. Nothing much to write about. I was expecting much more. They forgot to give us our bread. I will not go back again.

I love Cafe 56! The ingredients are always fresh, the staff is always friendly and willing to customize your order however you like it. I love the atmosphere in there! I always tend to get the buffalo chicken salad, with extra chicken but I also have them put it in a taco bowl, which is amazing. Their homemade chips are... More

Met some girlfriends for our monthly lunch date at Cafe 56. There are almost too many salads to choose from! I had a Napa Valley salad it had a mix of chicken, nuts, cranberries & more. Very tasty! My friends also got salads, one being named after Frank Sinatra. Old blue eyes got this one right too. They liked their... More

I can't stand this place. I've only been there once, and that was one time too many. They screwed up a turkey sandwich - how do you screw up a turkey sandwich? The place is way too dark, it's stark, uninviting, I am big on atmosphere and I wanted to run out of there. I will pick any place but... More

This was my first visit and there were too many choices. I had a hard time deciding, but finally chose Thai Asian noodles with shrimp and veggies. It was soooo good. I enjoyed it so much I have already been back twice. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something different.

I called to place order for pick up for lunch. The guy who took my order said that he is by grill right now but order will be ready in 15 min. When I came I found out that computer "lost my order". I was also told this with the worst attitude ever. This was the last time I order... More

This little place got its name because they have 56 kinds of salad! They also feature 4 kinds of soup and 14 sandwiches but every time we have been there we have had salad and it has always been absolutely superb. You order at the counter and they call you when it's ready. The place is small but there have... More

This is a solid shop that is a good place to grab something healthy in a hurry. I have eaten here often and have had good wraps, fresh salads and good chili. My only critique of this place is they need to step up their cleaning a bit. At the end of the day tables sit unclean often and the... More
