Stopped by for lunch during the week upon recommendation from guard at State House. Salad was really tasty and well done, just not as filling as I would have liked. Comfortable atmosphere inside and out. Disappointed that everything is disposable - environmental awareness = zero. Ugh. Didn't have coffee because the line was really too long. Maybe next time I'm... More

Food is always great. Service is a bit lackluster. Bunch of college kids working there that don't really care about customers. Seating can be challenging at lunchtime.

This restaurant has been consistently good for about 20 years. Mellow relaxed place with good substantial food at good prices.

Immaculate Consumption is a great, laid-back place to meet with friends and family. The food is excellent. So is the coffee. They always have a stack of current magazines, such as Esquire and the Atlantic Monthly. Wish we didn't have to wait so long in line, however.

Small little place with more seating downstairs. Being in the heart of downtown and the University, it often has a line at lunch time (so go a little early!) Menu offers unique deli-style items that are very healthy. Might be a little pricey if you're looking for a cheap lunch, but still good food.

In Columbia for meetings and found this adorable restaurant. Food was great, love the decor. Only drawback is that it is so good, it's packed at lunch with students and business folks from the nearby Capitol complex.

Just behind the State House and right in the middle of the university is a special little spot where good coffee and good food is to be had. It can get busy at lunch time, but that is to be expected from a place that offers a lunch meal at a decent price. Grab a copy of the local newspaper... More

I live for their turkey avocado pita with pasta salad! I've been coming here somewhat regularly for a few years and have never been disappointed. And after years without wifi, I noticed the other day that there's now a network (ask for password at register) -- not sure how recent that change is, but I just noticed. Seating can be... More

This is a great place. The food is excellent and the coffee… off the charts. I found the price, however, just a little steep. Other than that, it’s worth a look-see.

L-O-V-E this place. Great atmosphere and their amazing coffee is roasted on site. I love their Ring-of-Fire blend hence the purchase of five pounds of this bean for the trek back to OH. The food (sandwiches and baked goods) are very tasty. Rob and his staff are fantastic and accomodating which makes this a great place to hang out and... More
