This restaurant is a hidden gem that makes food impeccably. Whatever you like, meat fish, vegetables; it's all here and done to a different standard. It will not disappoint.

We went here for lunch on a Saturday. On Saturday they only do carry out and have their diner closed which I did find a little strange. I wish they would at least open up the patio area. We ended up walking over to Collins Park and sat and ate and had a good time. Their were about 8 different... More

So many salads to choose from but you don't have to. You can order a sampler with all the salads on one plate. They give you large quantities too.

I have eaten at Cafe Max several times. They have great salads and their portion sizes are enough for two meals. The chicken salad is my favorite.

All I can say is SALAD TRIO!! Chicken salad, pasta salad and Cesar salad. I've been sooooo many times and every time it's clean and they take such great care of everyone. One plate can feed two people, or makes two meals. I have two small children and they help us to our table, bring us high chairs and clean... More

Fairly basic, this cafeteria style restaurant specializes in salads, but also serves soups, sandwiches and quiche. I had a sampler which is a large plate filled with Caesar, chicken, fruit, seafood, potato, pasta and vegetable salads. Tasty and large enough that even people with anti-rabbit food tendencies will be satisfied. This is primarily a lunch place for people working nearby.

I recently visited Cafe Max for the first time and loved it! I had the country ham quiche of the day, and it was a very large piece of quiche compared to some places and was absolutely delicious. It came with two "side" salads: the pile of caesar salad I was served was huge and very good, and the cucumber... More

Food was okay. I was expecting a larger selection of green salads. Turkey sandwich was fine. Location is a little hard to get in and out of.
