Great food, excellent prices

Everyone in our group loved their food . . . Veggie Burger, Rotisserie Chicken, Island Burger, Tuna Salad Burger. The Cuban Black Beans and the Orzo Basil Salad are excellent as well. The prices are fantastic! This place is a MUST GO! I just wish we had a Calypso Cafe in Jackson, MS!!

I hate to leave negative reviews, but my dining experience at this restaurant is such a contrast with the glowing reviews that I wonder if we ordered the wrong things from the menu. First though, the service was excellent. I have no complaints about the quality or speed of the service. Our server was very good. We started with the... More

We traveled 20 miles to eat at this restaurant that is touted a fresh and healthy, and it was a huge let down. The food is very plain and without much flavoring. It wasn't even average. Don't go here if you want upscale healthy cuisine. We ordered three items: 1. Vegetable sandwich that was just a few cut up raw... More

Great chicken and choice of sauces. Great black beans and sweet potatoes as well. I went to this place before they expanded to several locations and it is a good as ever. Table service is wonderful.

This place has Table Service or Carry-Out with a nice little menu selection. The fruit Tea is so yummy with FREE refills!! The muffins are a bit dry but still very good. I like that they offer a lot of heathy options on the menu. The staff was super friendly & the service quick as our food was served shortly... More

Relaxed atmosphere, semi-fast food. They have table service or carry-out. We had jerk chicken and many of the side items between us. Food was really good. Chicken was very well done jerk! Staff was friendly. Good place that is different from the normal fast food offerings. Well worth stopping here to eat.

Perfect to take you wife for lunch or dinner. Their fruit tea is delicious with unlimited refills. Great service and friendly staff. The menu appeals to ladies more than men, but the food is good and reasonably priced.

I had not been back in awhile but tried the new location on Charlotte Ave with a new friend and it was as good as ever! I find all their salads good and healthy and their chicken is good anyway prepared.

good review because my husband loved his bar-b-cued chicken and bean salad-the rice meh....so-so. I asked the waiter about the tuna salad. Answer "yeah...I don't know, it's not made here" not such a good answer. I had a salad that MUST have had and entire cup of canned, squishy mandarin oranges on it. Really? the romaine was crisp and fresh... More
