Visited this place twice during lunch hour on weekdays with co-workers last year.

The staff was inexperienced, didn't listen carefully either time and the food delivered was so-so the first time and outright unacceptable the second time.

The veggie burger I ordered arrived with clearly a totally soggy bottom bun but the cooks in the kitchen wanted to slide that by without any regards for the guest's lunch experience. The waiter didn't notice it either while bringing it from the kitchen to the dining table!

Greetings and follow up on part of the staff also appeared too phony rather than genuinely warm or friendly.

Doesn't have many choices for vegetarians.

But going by the crowded evenings and lunch hours, seems like a popular place may be acceptable place for meat lovers.

The food and location are excellent. Service is and has always been annoying. Why can't they hire normal waitresses and waiters. I just don't get it.

We love the West End Cafe. It is good for a date or a family meal. We have always received excellent service. The menu has a good general selection, the food is fresh. If you want something different from the average chain restaurant that has a great atmosphere then this is your place.

We have been going to the West End Cafe for so many years and it just gets better. Dates, groups, families are all treated in a friendly, professional manner. If you want to order the entrees, which come with a salad, they are top notch, equal to what you would order in an upscale restaurant. The salads and sandwiches are fab and large--I am a big fan of the house special salad with grilled chicken, a large delicious green salad with many toppings and a whole sliced grilled breast--your choice of home made dressings--and I love the pretzel crusted salmon salad--a whole filet on mixed greens--all at reasonable prices. You can sit at the bar for service or get a table, they usually clear out in a reasonable time frame when busy --in nice weather, very pleasant to get your drink and wait outside where they have a lovely garden and pond. This place is our Cheers--we eat there once a week.

Need a place to go and really just wind down, even in comfortable clothing? Want to be treated as if you're the only customer a place has? Want to dine on some of the best, freshest and most artistic culinary treats in the area? All I can say is... you gotta go! Sandwiches are as good as they get. Weekend specials could blow your mind!
