Had a very good lunch at Kitchen 280. Very tasty and reasonably priced! The burger and pasta were delicious, coupled with sweet tea and it really hit the spot!!

Chicken soup was generous portion but as a soup maker I would rate this meal as a 4 (1-10). Staff helpful but seemed on the learning curve. Salad served in a metal pie plate??

This is pretty much a self-serve place. The coffee is excellent and the breakfast is wonderful. We also had a breakfast sandwich that was very good.
