Centre Street Cafe is off the beaten path, not well publicized and it's full of locals. Go for Lunch, the menu is huge, over 4 pages and original. Great soups, salads and sandwiches and if you don't like their sandwiches you can design your own.

Popped in for lunch after a recommendation from a colleague. Had half of the New Yorker and a bowl of soup (lemon chicken rice with feta) both were excellent. Service was friendly and prompt. Will be coming back soon.

Normally I would name this a hidden gem but seems that others already know of this secret! WOW is the food great here. Soup and sandwich were both very well constructed for maximum flavor. What a gem.

Food was okay. Just okay. Had the swamp soup and a calimex salad. The salad was missing many of the ingredients as described in the menu and the swamp soup tasted like a can of tomatoes with frozen spinach added. Server was pleasant. A little...More
