Every time I go through Columbus, I must stop over here. I usually purchase chicken salad to go for myself and for friends and family. The staff are always more than willing to help decide which type is best for my taste. Always a great experience!

“Wonderful Lunch ”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

My wife loves the place and has picked up chicken salad for is on multiple occasions and they have all been wonderful from Classic Carol to Fancy Nancy to Cranberry Kelli to the Old Southern so I tried myself and was pleasantly pleased as the experience was better than anticipated after reading previous reviews. I did not have to wait at all but mind you it was 1:00 pm. And the staff was pleasant and offered solid answers to my questions and the food was brought quickly (faster than I thought). I have touches on the chicken salad and it was perfection and I tries two sides being the broccoli and pasta salad respectively. They were both tasty. The broccoli salad had a unique blend of cheese and peppers with almost a cole slaw base with bacon bits, very unique and yummy. The pasta salad was an Italian dressing base with spirals and veggies, very good. The place is small but has nice decor and plenty of light. Very good lunch spot and worth it if you have time as I can understand the line if you arrived 11:30-12:00.

Enjoy CSC!

Ok as someone that loves chicken salad and ate lots of it, this place is nothing special. I'm sorry but the chicken salad is almost not chicken salad at all. mushy mushy. People who don't eat much chicken salad might review it as good but it isn't. If you are a female or old I could see why you would like the atmosphere but as a guy you will not I promise you. The price is terrible, especially for what you get.

“Lunch for "chicks"”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

It's a cute place to eat . A place to take your lady. My wife likes this place, she likes the decor. They have about 15 different chicken salads, from plain to fruity, to spicy. They also have about 5 different choices of bread for a sandwich or you can have crackers. It also comes with a few side items or chips . It's a nice place for lunch, something different

“great food, bad experience”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I really like this restaraunt and the food is delicious, my company sometimes place to go orders at this restaraunt on a bi weekly basis, but this last experience really made me think of not coming back, I came in on Thursday March 27, around 3:45. I called my order in and when I came to pick up my order I stood in the line where it had call in/pick up line for about 15 to 20 minutes, there was one other lady in line before i arrived, after her order was placed, the lady at the register looked at me and never ask could she help me, no acknowledge or anything, I watch the lady that was working the register let 3 ladies that walked in after me and took there order, I felt some kind of way because I am a black female and yet 3 white females came in and she was all ready to take there order with a smile, not saying this lady is racist, but yet her actions made me feel this way, I had to stop one of the ladies that was fixing orders behind the counter if she could help me with my to go order and she gladly did and even apologize for the lack of customer service the lady showed me. I'm pretty sure I'll come back but no time soon.
