“A real neighborhood Gem”
Reviewed 21 December 2011

Excellent sandwiches and a southern type hot meal available.
You don't go here for the atmosphere just the food.
Try the white bean soup.

“Really good food, but a bit expensive”
Reviewed 16 December 2011

Local cafes with comparable menus are cheaper, but this place has a couple of specialty dishes that make them stand out.

“Sandwiches O.K., but a little run down...”
Reviewed 4 December 2011

Sandwiches are just average...dining room is old & dingy. No atmosphere at all. Nothing special.

“Fresh & Homemade”
Reviewed 28 September 2011

Easily the best spot in BG for homemade plate lunches and sandwiches. I've never had a bad meal here. Only drawback is the long lines at lunch and they always (I've never actually had it, it happens so often) run out of hashbrown casserole; and it looks awesome! Line goes quickly though and there's plenty of seats.

“Best place for lunch in town!”
Reviewed 18 November 2010

I've traveled to Bowling Green several times in the past few months for business, and I love going to Cambridge Market for lunch. The lunch crowd starts to fill around 11:30 a.m., but the line moves very quickly. They offer a variety of foods from georgous salads,homemade dressings in the usual and house varieties... They have a ton of sandwiches, fixed the way you want (toppings, a dozen or more types of bread, etc)., several homemade and delicious soups to choos from, and about six different meats that are usually served with two veggies of your choice, and you have about twenty to choose from! Personally, I love their chicken salad, I think it's the best ever. They have the best mashed potatoes I've ever tasted... and their broccoli salad is the best ever too. The price is around $5-$7 for lunch for most meals. Free drink refills, service is fast, food is hot and tasty. I've eaten there every lunch for the past week, and I have no plans on finding anywhere else to eat! The place is large and clean, service is friendly, healthy options are available as well. I highly recommend Cambridge Market. You can even call ahead for take-out that will be ready when you arrive!
