"Take your choice of quick good food or leisurely good food. Free refills on drinks (self serve). Lots of free salad/entree' add-ons (self serve). My favorite is the flavored tea with a fresh sumptous shrimp salad, warm bread, & brownie w/ nuts for dessert. Always enjoy the food & the casual but quiet atmosphere." All love in peace, Diana

LOVE THIS PLACE! The salads are so good and I usually get the club sandwich to share! It's is in a awesome location, you can stop in while shopping around Market Street and enjoy the atmosphere. They have a nice seating area outside for when it is nice out! I always recommend eating here when in town.

I placed an online order for pick up to take with us to the 5 SOS concert. The food was delicious and well packed. Staff let me in to the Pavilion and said I would make others hungry--- did not disappoint. Much better than eating your typical concession food

Enjoyed the bar where you can add a variety of items such as olives, sun dried tomatoes, and more to the dishes you have ordered.

This restaurant has been in the past a decent quick lunch location. The last time we had lunch was after the lunch rush hour. The condiments bar was all but empty and needed a good cleaning. The service was fair but the crew seemed to be a bit understaffed. The floor could have used a quick sweep. The food was... More

I've always loved Cafe Express for its fresh salads, quick service and black currant iced tea. But this week's shrimp and avocado salad was disappointing. Plentiful shrimp and avocado, but there was enough salad dressing for 2-3 salads! A total turn-off. $13 for the salad picked up at the counter (no table service), so my expectations were high...

It is a good place, if you want a quick meal. The food tastes really good, only the place itself is not so nice. On some days the personel is friendly on some it is not. But thats life

Four of us ate dinner here on a June weeknight. You place your order at the counter and the food is brought to you. I had a turkey sandwich which was pretty decent. My spouse ordered a tuna sandwich, and they brought her a turkey by mistake. However, the tuna appeared in a couple of minutes - impressive. The place... More
