The salads are really good & fresh here. The soups (especially the mushroom soup) are wonderful, as are the few stir fry dishes they have. All meals are quite plentiful.

The food was ok, nothing special. The portion size was small. The prices were about right for what was offered. My wife had a salad with chicken, and she said it was OK. But nothing special.

Excellent selection of salads and sandwiches. Relaxed casual atmosphere. Within our group, everyone said their salads were tasty and everyone said they would return again. Highly recommend.

My wife and I went to this dark, dingy place last night for a quick bite. In the end, the food was pretty good but it's not worth the negative staff attitude and poor service to get the meal. They only serve 3 of their wraps as a half sandwich with soup, if you ask for anything else you are... More

It has been a while since I was honored to eat at Cafe 56 because I was in an almost fatal accident. Now that I am almost recovered I want to give the thankfulness they deserve. There is nowhere else that you can go for a salad and have a HUGE list of options available to place your order. The... More

I don't think they quite have 56 salads on the menu, but they have a lot of them! Each one comes with a yummy pretzel roll. The soups are good too. I like the creamy portobello soup, and I am not normally a mushroom soup fan.

loved the Caribbean salad-- chicken was cooked perfectly. not tough and cold as most chicken in salad is. also had a great portion and i even liked their raspberry vinaigrette. I am not a raspberry fan, but this was particularly good. Good value for the quality and portion.

Always fresh. Staff are all very courteous. Dressing options are numerous. Love the creative names of the salads. I almost always get the Flank Sinatra, Arizona or a fruity summer salad. My husband gets the Longhorn every time. I almost always order a portobello bisque to go for lunch at work the next day. It's amazing- I've looked for recipes... More
