“Could be so much better...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

The Swan Cafe has a lot of potential, but seems to aim low with the same selection of items every time I come here. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, and you can put together a nutritious meal here but it's mostly premade and packaged by unseen hands. It's good for grab and go, but not so good for a sit down cozy meal. It's more cafeteria than deli, restaurant or cafe. With a bit of imagination and creativity the Swan Cafe could grow into a really wonderful place to enjoy healthy meals. For now it is just ok...
