Liked it. Small but eclectic menu of sandwiches and soups. Had veggie panini and chicken chimichanga. Both very good. Pies are homemade (waitress: "My mom makes them). Great alternative to chain food.

Quaint restaurant with hot panini sandwiches, wraps and cold sandwiches as well as half avocado stuffed with tuna, chicken salad or pimento cheese. They also serve a homemade soup du jour -- ours was enchilada soup and it was the perfect side. I would have given it 5 stars if they had a gluten free bread option. Similar bistros in... More

The stuffed avocado with chicken salad was unavailable at 1:45. They close at 2. We had a couple of sandwiches with salad. The salads were very well presented with very nice greens. The greens were too large and had to be cut. The sandwiches were very good. But the topper was the Mexican Key Lime Pie. We talked about it... More

This was a great find for us several years ago as we were traveling to San Antonio. That was the case this time. We planned our trip so we could have lunch here going down and coming home. It has never disappointed and they are so-o-o friendly. If you want a great review that tells everything, read "Hamilton's" review called... More

"Bistro: a small restaurant serving moderately priced simple meals in a modest setting." Well that can be improved on by saying Central Perk has sumptuous sandwiches and exciting soups. The Peach Tea aint bad either! Central Perk is right on the main north south drag though town. The parking gets kinda sketchy but there's always a place somewhere. CP is... More

You can't miss Central Perk if you're driving north or south on US 281 through Hamilton, Texas. Great soups, sandwiches and salads; the stuffed avocado is a personal favorite. Moderate prices.

This is by far one of the nicer places to eat in Hamilton. Great sandwiches with fresh veggies. Awesome pies and cakes. Clean. Great meals around 7-8$.

I eat at Central Perk fairly regularly. I have never had a bad soup! Her tomato basil is outstanding, I lived her Italian Wedding Soup, and if you are lucky, you may happen in on a day where she has mushroom soup! Outstanding!
