Our family love to eat at cafe express. Nice location, great food. The deli chicken salad is always my favorite when my kids like spaghetti n fried chicken. Shrimp pasta is tasty too.

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.

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.

This is a very nice spot to chill, the staff where friendly. Ordered grilled chicken combo to go and it was succulent and delicious. Was bummed I missed breakfast which ends at 11 but the chicken compensated for that.

Cafe Express combos are always good - half sandwich and soup. I really love their olives and other goodies at the fixin' bar, and reliable good food. A good 'get-together' place for lunch.
