“Great salads-huge portions”

Café Max has a good variety of salads and quiche. You get a free muffin or roll with your order. Portions are large enough for a second meal or to share with someone. Fresh salads. Sometimes it can be pretty crowded, but it is worth it!

Cafe Max in Richardson is consistently awesome. The portions are huge, salads are fresh & workers are pleasant. The Trio is the best...chicken salad, Cesar salad & pasta are always my choice, although the sandwiches look wonderful too. The spiced ice tea is one of my favorite teas in Dallas....Hours are wacky- a must lunch experience if in the Richardson area!!!!

First became acquainted with Cafe Max when my company catered their food - outstanding chicken salad, pasta salad, seafood salad. My favorite is absolutely their chicken salad - the perfect blend of ingredients with flavor, quality and taste. Try it!

Then I found out that you can also go to their Alma Road location and buy take out for just one - I had presumed that they only do bulk catering. How nice! They also have vegetable salad, fruit salad, potato salad, cucumber salad, quiche, and deli-type sandwiches.

Oh, I almost forgot - huge chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookies to top off your meal!

Their take-out is only open M-F from 10am-3pm, and Saturdays (salads only) from 10am-1:30pm.

They have a great business going for them because of their quality food - I was there doing the take out on Saturday >> just 8 large bowls of the various salads to choose from (which they keep replenishing) and you tell them what you want and they box it up to go for you. The line of people just kept on coming. Highly recommend.

OH! I've re-discovered an old favorite. I work in Richardson now and I can walk to Cafe Max if I want. I love Cafe Max because they give you 2lbs of good for you food. I particularly like their crab, chicken, caesar and cucumber salads. I get a trio all the time and it's priced good. The place is very clean, they're fast. They are packed at lunch, every day. But for some reason it works. The whole operation is very efficient.

Cafe Max is one of the best kept secrets in DFW. Their food is amazing and they are very generous on their portions. My favorite is the Salad Sampler which gives you a variety of tasty treats: Chicken Salad, Seafood Salad, Potato Salad, Cucumber Salad, Tomato Salad, Summer Vegetables and Fresh Fruit on top of a Caeser Salad and your choice of bread. Their carrot raisin muffins are awesome!
