This is the best lunch in town! The madagascar sandwich is delicious. The staff is very friendly and the food is all home cooked!

“Easily the best cafe in T.C.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2009

I'm a local who has eaten lunch here weekly for the last six years. I can't say enough about how good the soups, sandwiches, and salads are. Everything is healthy and well thought out on the menu. You can choose sandwiches from menu sections like "Here's the Beef", "Chicken Things", "Lean Dreams", etc. Pete, the owner, is a great guy who caters extensively in the area and even catered to the various TC Film Festival venues this past summer. I've never had a bad meal at Centre Street!

“Best Sandwiches and Salads in T.C.!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2008

Truly the best! Pete, the owner makes every effort to make your homemade soup, sandwich, or salad one of a kind! Everything is fresh, and absolutely delicous! It is off the beaten path, and since the food is so great, there can be a little wait time, so call ahead if you are in a rush! My recommendations, the homemade Swamp Soup, the Perfect Pita (vegetarian), or my personal favorite, the Greek Salad. The homemade dressing is out of this world!!
