Cafe Express provides a consistent fast-casual service with fresh tasty menu items. The salads and sandwiches are commonly ordered items for me.

This is probably my family's favorite quick-decision lunch place. Food's great, service is fast and it's clean and convenient

We had a quick bite here for breakfast and my husband really loved his sandwich. They offer latte's too just be sure to let them know that you don't want a sweet syrup flavor added to it if you want straight latte - mine came with an unexpected splash of SUPER SWEET. It was good, but I didn't ask for... More

First timer this past Saturday morning about 11:15. Despite being 15 minutes outside of the breakfast window I was given a break and granted my wish for a breakfast scrambler. Big pieces of turkey breast as the meat protein with perfect scrambled eggs and taters along with a piece of awesome wheat toast. My wife had a bowl of tortilla... More

You go up to a counter to order and the offerings are unique and delicious. I've never had a bad meal there. Whether you order a salad, a sandwich, or a dinner, you won't be disappointed. After receiving your meal, it's fun to go their bar of accouterments where you'll find salad toppings, pickles, mushrooms, olives, etc. If you are... More

We've stopped in Cafe Express several times for a quick lunch before going to see a movie at Harkins Theater around the corner. They are friendly and the food good. I usually order a grilled chicken salad as they are my favorite and are also a healthy portion, I never leave desiring more. My only compliant would be that they... More

The menu here is very extensive: breakfast, salads, pasta, sandwiches. I have always enjoyed the food, but the interior needs so much work! It always looks a little grungy, and the decor and layout make no sense. Even their outside space feels like a forgotten space even though it is prime street property. I hope the owners put some money... More

I went there for a quick supper just before they closed at 9:00 p.m. on a weeknight and had the fettuccine alfredo with grilled chicken with garlic toast which was wonderful. My daughters had the mac and cheese with an extra dish of cheese sauce. It too was excellent. Clean restaurant, polite service, and great food -up until they lock... More
