This deli-pizzeria-bakery-cafe has something for everyone. It's self-serve -- either at one of the counters or the buffet but there's plenty of seating upstairs. The quality of the food is surprising for the breadth of the assortment. Plus -- since you aren't paying for table service -- you can get lunch for two for under $25.

This cafe offers a breakfast bar, numerous breakfast sandwiches, juices, coffees, teas, and easy to grab and go food options. It is not a bad place to stop by for a quick breakfast, but it wasn't better than average. this is not a sit down cafe, it is a a couple of deli counters that you can order from. You seat yourself and bus your own table. The tables were not very clean. My food was just okay. The one thing that really bothered me is that not all of their ingredients are listed on their board. For example, the western omelette did not list it included ham. You need to ask about every dish if you are a vegetarian or trying to watch what you eat.

I stopped in here for a cup of coffee & dessert at 5:10 PM on Sat. 5/3/14 with my family and a worker was throwing out the food from the display case. This made us think the cafe was closing. So we asked the cashier if they were closed, and she said, "No, we are open until 6PM." So my husband asked if the coffee was fresh and the cashier said, "Yes, the coffee is always fresh." Then we purchased three coffees and it tasted old and bitter." My daughter poured milk in hers and it remained a muddy black color. As we sat and tried to drink this coffee, I suddenly smelled pine scented disinfectant & I turned around to find a worker mopping the floors
right behind us. It was 5:35 pm. We got up to leave and we had to very carefully walk over the wet floor to avoid falling. We were very sorry we stopped in.

Stayed at a nearby hotel and stopped in for the breakfast buffet a couple of mornings. The selection was huge and the food was fresh. French toast was nice and moist, not dry like other buffet lines. There is not only a wide variety of breakfast items first thing in the morning but salads, seafood , Chinese food and so much more. Thats just the buffet, that have made to order deli items as well.

Our hotel was just across from that place, so over the course of a week stay, we did either breakfast , lunch or dinner there depending on the day. The food was always excellent and there are lots of choices. Very reasonable prices.
