I've been eating lunch, or sometimes breakfast at the Uptown for a couple of decades and the food is always exactly what I was hoping for, whatever I ordered. It's my neighborhood sandwich and salad place, whether a quick take out or efficient lunch meeting or just a place to take a breather and enjoy a great lunch, maybe sitting... More

Great local flavor, lots of local notables eat here. The food is really good and fast, lots of variety. Bottomless cup of coffee, reminds me of a cafe in a college town anywhere.

Shady outdoor tables and cool indoor seating; good-value fresh sandwiches, soups and salads; iced tea with fresh mint and lemon; cookies and brownies; good coffee. And the owners are local, community-spirited and just plain friendly. What's not to love?!

This is a good local place. It is almost like Cheers where everyone there knows you name. They have a good breakfast. Not exotic, just good food. Good breakfast and omlets. Also good lunch for sandwiches and salads.
