Had a gift certificate. Was aware of their 3 course meal, however, waitress did not give us the selections for it, had to ask. Food was good. Restaurant could use a good cleaning, windows washed and flies removed, both dead and alive.

We are late comers to Trax Cafe and I am so glad that we finally got there. Located in Ambler, it's easy to get to and plenty of parking right next door. The restaurant is an old train station, but somehow it has been turned...More
