“Nice Lunch Place”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Quick service, nice lunch selection. It's not cheap, but everything we had was fresh and tasted great. Also had nice specials the day we went. We were staying at a nearby hotel, and it was just a walk across the street.

“Great Food”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

I had the pleasure to meet my sisters at the Café over the weekend and have to give it high praises. It is a deli where you give your order, pay, and take a table. After ten minutes or so, delicious food arrives. My sisters had a salad with chicken, and I enjoyed a chicken salad sub. As my Mother in law would say, the fresh roll makes the sandwich. Well, the fresh chicken with lettuce and tomato also made is so very good. My husband joined us and he had a ruben and followed it with a slice of coconut cake which he shred one forkful!

I have not lived in the area for many years, but visit,

and had I known of the Café, we would have been there sooner

The restaurant is very clean and the waite staff pleasant.
There looked to be a couple parties, one being a birthday.

“Traveling on business and was lucky to find such a great restaurant”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I was in town from Philly and really didn't want to try the chain restaurants. I saw the light on at this place and found it to be a great restaurant. Jeff the owner was accommodating and sat with us for a while, like we were old friends. It is an American Menu - but everything tasted as if we were in a great restaurant in Philly. The Mohegan Sun Casino is right up the highway and Jeff gave suggested we stop in there. It was a fun night. We even stopped back the next day for lunch. They have to go orders and we found out they have meeting rooms and a large banquet room if we ever want to entertain clients.

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Cafe is a wonderful restaurant for both lunch and differ. The food on both menus has been of the highest quality and the service is excellent. Portions are generous and prices very affordable. There's a wide selection on the menu, including several vegetarian options, plus delectable desserts and an extensive wine/beer list. Can't say enough good things about it!
