Wonderful selections of gourmet and innovative food. You can dine inside or outside with two or 10 friends. One of us had the French Connection (French Baguette, Roasted Turkey, Sliced Pears, Bleu Cheese, Lettuce & Roasted Pecan Brie Cream Cheese) and I had the Torta Rustica (Layers of Turkey Breast, Provolone Cheese, Sauteed Spinach, Roasted Red Peppers, Fresh Pesto Spread on Ciabatta). They have Paninis too. Very delicious food!!

This is truly great healthy food. This is a order up front and brought out to you style restaurant. It has indoor seating and large covered patio tables. The menu changes but, you can't miss it is all good. I eat here when ever I am in the area. The salads and soups are fresh and wonderful. Try it you will like it.

Super cute cafe with outdoor seating, the grounds are well taken care of and very pretty and green. The food is a little overpriced for the taste. Service and atmosphere are awesome though!

We had lunch here 3 days in a row because it was just a short walk from where we were working.
It works like a cafeteria where you order and pay in advance and ghen wait for your order to be delivered to your table.
I thought service was a little bit slow, at least 2 of the 3 times.
They offer an extense selection of sandwiches, paninis and salads.
You can ask for half a sandwich and half a salad, which for me was the perfect option.
Salads are fresh and with a nice twist from the regular salads you would order someplace else.
They have tables outside so you can have lunch on the patio which it is really nice.

Café Rose Express has a wide variety of lunches from salads to sandwiches and even a few entrees. It is tucked away which makes it a nice spot to have lunch on the patio where it is quiet, but they also have indoor dining.
You order and pay when you walk in at the counter and then they give you a number and deliver the food to your table, so it is pretty casual. You select your seat. The service is quick though.
Pricing is reasonable...around $10/pp. Don't forget the Over the Top cookie for dessert.
