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.

Very good food--We eat at there for lunch all the time and it is very busy around noon. It is located in the market street so there is great shopping in the area.

Cafe Express delivers good food at a great price. Their are a lot of menu items to choose from. The quality of the food was good and the customer service was excellent. My party of 7 was there on a Friday night and could tell that we had came after the rush. The atmospher is OK. Don't expect amazing ambiance... More

Okay all hands on deck. This soup demands your attention. It is creamy, with big chunks of chicken in it with lots more flavor than imagined. Be prepared for your mouth to be swarmed in all sort of deliciousness when you taste that first spoonful; your taste buds will thank you for it. If you get the entrée portion, it’s... More

I stop by Café Express on a regular basis because it's a great place to go when you just need something to eat and don't really know what you want. It's a quick-service restaurant, but with better-quality ingredients than you would normally get from this type of place. Portions are generous, and the counter service is fast and friendly. The...

Met an friend here for lunch. Great place with a variety of food on the menu. Healthy salads, sandwiches, and pasta dishes. It is a bit confusing, but when you figure out what you want you order and sit down they bring your food to you.
