Overpriced, it's not a cafe at all, it;s a buffet with cold bland food. It's not "HOME COOKING" tastes like the food came right out of a can! Never again

I drop by here often and pick up food. It is usually good but you never know what you will pay. Things are always different prices. Many of my friends like the food but don't like the differences in pricing!

Good breakfast, chicken tenders, chicken livers, broccoli casserole. Most of the vegetables are bland and taste like they are from a can. Tried chicken pot pie twice and had maybe 3-4 strands of chicken in it. Turkey and dressing is a congealed mess. Stick to...More

How do you know how much to put on your plate? It is confusing..you serve yourself but they charge by the "item"? Big scoop? Little scoop? Or what?
