Ate dinner here with a group of seven and had both great food and service. There was a party of 40+ people that came in right after us and our server was great about ensuring that our order got in and we got our food in a timely manner despite the large group ordering at the same time. It was... More

On our way out of the movie and into the garage, but decided to grab some dinner at Cafe Deluxe (right next door to the garage). It was a pleasant surprise and the food was very good. Service excellence. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

We enjoyed a very pleasant Sunday Brunch--omelette with tomato and feta, Southern Breakfast sandwich, eggs benedict, and an order of beignets. All good. The downside? The tables are very close together, so go for a booth if you can get it, and it is quite loud. Over all we'd certainly return when we're in the area.

We rendezvoused with family for a Sunday brunch at Café Deluxe. One of our family members needs a gluten-free menu, and that was provided. The coffee was excellent, and our server filled my cup frequently. I had Salmon Florentine Benedict. It was delicious.

We ate lunch here countless times . Never failed to impress. Food was always fresh and good. Slow sometimes but service is good, love the outside seating.

I had dinner here on New Year's Eve and should have been alarmed when it was almost empty at a little after 9PM. Its a nice setting but the food was mediocre at best and the service was pretty awful, although it seemed that our waiter was brand new and just had not been trained properly. When I asked him...

I have been going to Cafe Deluxe for many years because it is kid friendly. This last visit was unacceptable. The most egregious example was when I ordered the roasted half-chicken to split between my 5-year old kids. The outside of the chicken breast seemed fine, and started serving my kids the meal. After they began to eat, I cut... More

After waiting for dinner to be served for 35 minutes (dining room about 65% occupied), 3 Cobb Salads were okay, but Bison Burger sandwich was overcooked (ordered medium), and burger roll dried and deteriorated when touched to apply ketchup. Burger was tasteless.(Server was attentive, but apparently kitchen was extremely slow.)
