We enjoyed a delicious sandwich and a salad at Cafe C5. I had the veggie sandwich. It was overloaded with delicious vegetables, cheese and sauce. The salad was the Thai Chicken salad. Large and flavorful.

I have had the Cajun Shrimp Wrap, NBC Blackened Salmon Sandwich, 1890 Grilled Turkey!. Everything has been tasty, lots of food, personable service. Give this unassuming walk-up a try. You will be glad you did.
