“Consistently good food- a bit slow of you wait too long to go to lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Always great food... great sweet potato fries! Salads, sandiwches & soups always top notch and consistent between locations.Nice condiment bar with pickles, crackers, breadsticks etc.

It gets really busy at lunch (at least on a weekday) so if you have an hour for lunch go early (by 11:30 latest).

“Fast and Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

Cafe Express is the perfect place to go when you need a quick meal but want it to be nutritious and delicious! There is a variety of options from which to choose and the iced tea is wonderful.

“cafe express”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

always my fav turkey burger on wheat. and the black currant tea. add a lime to the tea not a lemon. never had anything bad here. constructive criticism would be to add a few more items to the fixings bar. but no complaint at all.

“love their tart”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

The item I always get when I go there is their veggie tart and salad and I love it every time. I also am fond of the Dream Bar dessert.

“A staple for lunches...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

Some of the things I love about Cafe Express: fresh ingredients, the decor is updated and attractive, and the restaurant is always kept clean. My favorite thing: the bar of flavored oils (infused with basil or red pepper) and the selection of "additions" like sundried tomatoes, whole roasted garlic cloves, and peppers. They also have an outdoor seating area that is wonderful for those 4 or 5 days a year that feel like "real" autumn.

The service is hit or miss, hence the 4 stars. Today, our server was disinterested, at best, and conveyed his desire to be anywhere but there.
