Good fare

Great place for food to go or eat in. I especially like the hummus, wish they served with carrot sticks...but still enjoy. Everyone is very friendly and the wait is never long

I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. The dining room is very large and there is outdoor seating. The wait staff is excellent. We ate there for dinner one day and then came back for lunch and dinner the next. The prices are exceptionally low for the quality of the food. The food is cooked to... More

Cafe Express is a favorite restaurant of mine for all the times I am looking for high quality food, served quick by people who provide great service and charge very reasonable prices. This place has a tremendous variety of menu items to appeal to everyone in your family or group, all made fresh by an onsite Chef and served by... More

This is such a cute place with lots of potential. I have eaten at various Café Express many times in the 90's. But visited this location last weekend with some friends. The burger was overcooked, the bread seemed stale and the restaurant was dirty (tables and floor) even though there were not that many customers and plenty of employees on... More

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
