With a shortage of low-cost breakfast options in downtown Dallas, this could have been a good find - if the experience had lived up to the website's claims. I ordered the 'breakfast croissant' which, although freshly assembled, was delivered without any egg at the first attempt. One of only four components missing - I mean, how hard can it be?... More

Food was good, but wow all four employees I interacted with were rude. I couldn't even enjoy my food I was so put off. Great location for business lunches, so I guess that is all they need. Not paradise.

I work in the Renaissance Tower and eat here about once a week. The mixed greens salad is really good, and is usually my go-to choice for lunch. The cookies are okay, as are some of the other items I have tried. Depending on who helps, service can be hit or miss. Some make it feel like ordering from them... More

Being from New England, I thought the south was known for their manners. Perhaps the staff at this cafe did not get the memo! They were definitely not welcoming and communication seemed painful. There was no information on the ordering process flow, so when I tried to order a salad at the sandwich station I received a mumbled message which... More

Occasionally drop buy for lunch. You almost need to be a regular to know where to stand. I've never been unsatisfied regarding the food. Slightly pricy.
