Nice lunch stop

I had the greek salad with grilled chicken and black currant iced tea. Yum! Quick, friendly service. Improvements could be made: decor is tired, outside seating needs umbrellas, but I still think the food is worth the trip.

I have tried most of the salads here and have never been unhappy. Perfect portions and always fresh. One of our favorites is the hummus appetizer too! My husband said it was the best hummus he has ever had! And he is not much of a hummus fan. He went back to get more grilled pita! My kids LOVE the... More

While spending the day shopping in the Town Square we were happy to come across the Café Express for a quick lunch. There are no servers here, you order at the counter and pick up your meal with a pager. We were happy with the potato soup on the menu! The café was very busy and offered an outdoor eating... More

My sister lives locally and recommended Cafe Express for a great salad and glass of wine. My order was quickly and efficiently taken by a super friendly cashier who described the Chef Veggie salad and totally sold me on it. A brief wait - although it's lunchtime - and my buzzer buzzed. I was surprised at the presentation. Although the... More

Whether your in a hurry or wanting a leisurely lunch/dinner cafe express can provide both. My fav is the hummus and garlic bread...simple but delicious. Staff are always friendly and the place is clean. There is inside and outside seating...can get pretty busy at lunch!! Yum!

Café Express brings ti eclectic menu to Southlake and it doesn't disappoint. The menu doesn't vary from any other location, so if you been to Café Express before, then you know what to expect. Two minor quibbles keep this from being a 5-star review. The space is VERY big, so you can sort of get lost in there. Since they... More

This is a self service restaurant that never takes long and the staff is very friendly. The breakfast and lunch are both really great. Everything is very good and there is a something for everyone's taste. Breakfast is very quiet and there is free wi-fi. Lunch time is definitely more crowded and noisy but still a good place to meet... More

I like the selection of salad, soup and sandwiches. Best part is the condiments that you can add after you get your food. Choices of pepperocinis, jalapenos, salsas, dried tomatoes, etc are nice addition for a heartier salad!

Needed a quick bite while waiting for my crew to arrive across the highway. Had the turkey club sandwich with kettle chips and it was very good. Love the option of fresh mint leaves for my water. I would definitely go back again!
