Waited too long to order. Used to love Cafe 13. 13 now isnt the same. Had to flag down people 3 times to pay. This will be my last time there.

We waited about 15 minutes to be served and then the food was gross. Had a sandwich and the meat was so tough, chewy and undercooked I almost barfed. Seating is crowded and ambiance is non-existent. Will never return.

Food was average and somewhat overpriced. Could use a Reno kinda dated but quaint. Service was just ok, slow and not too attentive.
