“If you are a snob, please stay the hell away from the Lunchbox.”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Stopped by with my spouse for a late breakfast after a long bike ride. Bianca the waitress was quick, cheerful, attentive and on the ball- young, tatooed, weird colored hair, but a real pro. We ordered breakfast including basted eggs, cheese grits, muffins, sausage, spam, orange juice and coffee. Hadn't had spam since I was a kid and loved it. The biscuits were light, fluffy and hot. Bianca made a fresh pot of all you can drink for $2.00 coffee. You buy a two egg breakfast here for $4.00 and the other prices are ridiculously cheap. Now if you want the high prices and breakfast for phonies served at the Broken Egg or the overpriced Starbucks, go there. For down to earth folks who want good food at an accessible place, with great service you can't beat the lunch box. You will save enough money to be able to afford places up the road like Cypress when you want to impress snobs.

“An unusual low low rating from me for here”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

Is been a while since I've reviewed here but needed. Today I had a craving for a Philly Cheesesteak. There special was a Cheesesteak Omlettee. So I did the Omlettee.
Service was slow, and lack luster, through a painted smile. Food flavor was way off. For the Lunch Box, almost unheard of. Eggs were undressing, steak was over cooked, and petites were soggy and VERY greasy.
Grits were dead on, I Got the cheese grits, very good indeed. I hate to say this but could have done better at Waffle house, in fact is should have gone there today instead.
I'll let this one go to an off day, because there so good otherwise. Still not impressed today

“Only location can explain this café's existence”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Despite lunchboxes imaginatively used as decoration, the interior and the exterior of this restaurant is totally uninviting to this customer. Unremarkable food. I cannot imagine returning here until I have tried a few hundred of Tallahassee's other 600+ restaurants.

“Lunchbox”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We have been wanting to try the lunch box for years. Its usually so busy we pass it by. The menu selection is good. The service is great. The food is good. I think it is alittle over rated but it a good decent place to get breakfast or lunch.

Nice home style food and in a great location. Nice servers and always welcome you as family. Burgers the old fashioned way.
