Snack before a movie in Southlake

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... read 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

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

Upscale and trendy, but reasonable prices. Healthy food, great condiments, super salads and generous portions. We always enjoy it. Clean and friendly.

I have nothing but good things to say about this restaurant. The dining room is very large and there is outdoor seating. The wait staff is excellent. We ate there for dinner one day and then came back for lunch and dinner the next. The prices are exceptionally low for the quality of the food. The food is cooked to... More
