My wife and I recently ate here and the food was great for a really decent price. The waitstaff was very willing to work with my Ketogenic lifestyle and had no problem separating all of the food for us.

Mustard Cafe is one of the best, consistent, unique experiences in the area. Their food is fresh and not-fast food. I had the pastrami (on rye, instead of the normal big bread). They have specials and wi-fi, so those are bonuses.

We love this place for a yummy office lunch. Great crusty French bread, good salads, their soups are delicious... It's also a fun bistro atmosphere, especially for a strip mall.

I really like the Apple pecan salad (added grilled chicken) - the dressing is the best - but we call it the $ 10 salad place. Salads are very high priced for what you get. We like the flavor though so every so often we...More
