Pretty Good

Four of us ate dinner here on a June weeknight. You place your order at the counter and the food is brought to you. I had a turkey sandwich which was pretty decent. My spouse ordered a tuna sandwich, and they brought her a turkey by mistake. However, the tuna appeared in a couple of minutes... read more

This restaurant has been in the past a decent quick lunch location. The last time we had lunch was after the lunch rush hour. The condiments bar was all but empty and needed a good cleaning. The service was fair but the crew seemed to be a bit understaffed. The floor could have used a quick sweep. The food was... More

I've always loved Cafe Express for its fresh salads, quick service and black currant iced tea. But this week's shrimp and avocado salad was disappointing. Plentiful shrimp and avocado, but there was enough salad dressing for 2-3 salads! A total turn-off. $13 for the salad picked up at the counter (no table service), so my expectations were high...

It is a good place, if you want a quick meal. The food tastes really good, only the place itself is not so nice. On some days the personel is friendly on some it is not. But thats life

I had a Harvest Salad with Grilled Salmon for lunch, and it was fresh greens with strawberries and blueberries. My friend had his usual (he's a local) which was the Grilled Chicken & Pasta Pesto Deli. he said he's been ordering the same thing for years. He also said he has to visit Cafe Express at least once each week.

After our second visit to this Café Express, our consensus is that while they have some good ingredients, they just can't figure out how to put it all together to create a good product. Evidently we hit the tail end of the lunch rush because everything on the self service bars was picked over - no silverware, no breadsticks, etc.... More

This place gets packed with all office people around during lunch time so avoid 11:30 to 1:00 if you do not want to be in line waiting for your food. Great menu, affordable prices, VERY clean facilities, friendly staff and healthy food with possibility to do combos (sandwich and soup) and you could get extras for free like garlic, pickels,...

Almost fast food but not quite, and much healthier. A great place to feel good about grabbing a quick bite to eat.

This is one of those places with a menu so large and diverse that it can be hard to decide what you want - pastas, burgers, sandwiches, salads, entrees, etc. It is a short order kind of sit down place where you stand in line at the register and then wait to be paged to pick up your food.
