I love to eat at this restaurant. The food is great. There is a good selection. Help yourself to the capers to top your salad. Tons of tea to choose from at the self service. Love the bread sticks! I usually get a salad here but almost everything I have ordered is delicious. Sitting in the breezeway is super nice... More

Our first visit and it was a very nice experience. The food was fresh, delicious and came out quickly. Everything met our expectations of an upscale cafeteria. If I lived nearby I'd eat here often.

Similar to a Panera's in concept. You order at the counter, after which your food is prepared, you are notified by beeper, and return to retrieve. The selection is wide. Entrees, salads, pizzas, soups, sandwiches and burgers. Healthy and gluten free options are fairly good. We especially enjoyed their potato and black bean soups. The burgers were good. There is...

Overall, the ambiance was nice. It's a great spot to chill and chat with friends. The restaurant is very open, with lots of windows and high ceilings. Because of the openness, noise travels. But, you can still talk comfortably without having to raise yoru voice. I've always enjoyed the Cafe Express's Caesar Salad. They are generous with salad portion sizes.
