My friends and family have eaten at Cook's Cafe for years and have NEVER been disappointed. The food quality and flavor is excellent and of course the desserts are among the best one would find anywhere. Cooks cafe is one of the best dining values around.

Wowed by the selection of meats and salads I finally decided on the meatloaf and mushrooms which was a fantastic choice. The salads were great. The veggies lacked spice but were cooked very creatively. The cakes were the best and the deal was special. Drink, meal and desert was very reasonable for a hen cooked meal.

I have dinned at Cook's about four times this past year and have enjoyed it each time. It is buffet style and you get one serving of meat and unlimited sides and salad. There are normally four meats to chose from: lamb, roast beef (two different ones at different temps), a fish, and something like stuffed peppers. They do have... More

This was a very confusing buffet. If you did not order a drink [tea water soda] then you had to pay $4 for a dessert. Will not go back

Always good, great buffet-cafeteria style meal. Many items to choose from. Courteous, efficient staff. Easy in and out, hardly ever have to wait be seated.
