I always enjoy the salads at CPK. The veggies are crisp and nice. The salads are always well dressed and flavorful.

Huge menu. If you can't find something on the menu you like there is seriously something wrong with you. Gluten free options, vegetarian options, low calorie options. Excellent drink menu
