Was there with my husband, friend, his wife and two small children. Seemed to take awhile to get our food. People that were seated after us, were leaving after their meal and we were stil waiting. Seemed like a good place to gather - alot of groups enjoying themselves both on the floor and at the bar. Our friend was... More

I had lunch with my daughter today at the West End Cafe. It had been a while since I'd been in the West End during the middle of the day. I had the grilled chicken sandwich with cheese, bacon and mushrooms. Yum! More tasty than I expected. My daughter had a steak pita. She said she enjoyed it. Plus she... More

We had lunch with Friends for a birthday! The food was great! The salads are awesome! The big apple pie desert was heavenly! Everyone in our group was very impressed with food and service was great too!

This restaurant is consistent with great, friendly service and good food. Management is fabulous! Frequented here often for lunch when I worked in downtown, Winston-Salem. Awesome sandwiches and salad plates! Dinner is a bit pricier.

When downtown sometimes we head over to West End to grab lunch if other places are too crowded. They do a good business there. Sometimes service can be lacking, but the food is always good. My favorite is the Philly cheesesteak!

We like to have dinner at West End Cafe whenever we visit Winston-Salem. The menu offers a nice variety including a variety of sandwiches and salads as well as full dinners. I had the chicken saltimbocca with spaetzle and pan gravy. It was truly delicious. I rarely eat more than half of any restaurant portion but nearly licked the plate... More

The food here never disappoints. The choices are great, there are always specials, and the service is wonderful. It always feels like a neighborhood hangout with everyone having a good time. The area around the restaurant is great for walking and the park across the street is beautiful. You can go for a lovely stroll and enjoy lunch or dinner... More

You can build your own sandwich here. My friend started with pastrami and pepperoni then started adding condiments, tomatoes, lettuce, etc. Then a side of fries. I went simple with a hot pastrami Rubin with a side of fries. Both sandwiches were piled with meat. Service was excellent.

West end staple and great for salads, sandwiches and interesting entrees. Love the red zinger tea and Rob's choice salad. Friendly service in relaxed atmosphere.
