A colleague recently introduced me to Cafe Meridian after hearing me complain about the lack of a good deli in the Triangle. Their "Jersey Way", while not having the greatest name, is now one of my all-time favorite sandwiches. It's perfect corned beef and in abundance. Plus they have a diverse and interesting selection of sides.

This is a busy lunch place. Nice but a bit noisy atmosphere. You wait in line, go to the order counter, and place your order, go and pay and wait for the food to come out fresh to your table. We had two sandwiches, a Crispy Chicken Supreme...delicious! And a turkey with a cranberry mayo dressing. The prices are VERY... More

Cafe Meridian has a great variety of lunch options. They have soups, salads, green salads as well as different pastas, a great kale salad and their hot daily entree's are amazing. Always very fresh and great service.

I met a business associate here for lunch. The line was long when we got there but it moved quickly. There are daily specials, other specials and everyday food. I had chicken piccata with kale salad and strawberry salad. Everything was really great tasting. My friend had a ham sandwich with a salad as well. She said it was really... More

Went here 2 days in a row (only open M-F from 11a.m. - 2p.m.) with a group. We all enjoyed our dishes. I had blacked salmon with grilled veggies and bowtie pesto one day and Arroz con Pollo with black bean/corn side and strawberry salad. You get 1 entree with 2 sides of choice and a roll but you might... More

Good variety on menu. Entree selections vary by the day. Food is always tasty, fresh and served with a friendly smile. Reasonably priced - a hot entree and 2 sides (all kinds of fresh-made salads) under $10. Quick service at lunch too! Even when the line is long, it moves quickly.

I go here regularly for lunch. Everything I've ever had here has tasted great and fresh and their constantly rotating menu keeps me coming back for more. I'm never disappointed!

Good fresh food, reasonable prices, quick service, indoor and some outdoor seating. Only open for lunch 2-4PM. I eat there on a regular basis. Cafeteria style food line moves quick. They have several regular prepared entrees as well as several different specials each day. Some individual portion baked goods. Large sandwich selection, somewhat gourmet, all made to order, as well... More

Good selection of sandwiches and some hot plates. I had the salmon rigatoni. It was very flavorful. My lunch companion had a wrap and salad. He said that this has been one of his regular lunch spots. The cafe was fairly busy. I think a person (presumed to be the owner) was curt when asked about his hot lunch selections.... More
