I thought I had gone to Cafe Express in the past, but I would've remembered that! It was wonderful. I got some fetucini Alfredo with grilled chicken and peas and mushrooms. It was so good. My wife got some penne pasta dish and she absolutely loved it. It was a little pricey, but we didn't mind. We took our kids... More

There are many restaurants in Dallas to choose, but am I happy we walked into Cafe Express. It is both family friendly and business friendly. The food is amazing - great breakfast sandwiches, great tasting turkey sausage, and french toast with caramel syrup. The cafe latte was one of the best - no acidity in the coffee at all.

Really enjoyed my meal. Prompt service. Fresh tasty food. My first time in Cafe Express and with such a sort turn around as I had a meeting to go to and little free time I really appreciated the fast service.

You order at a large counter at the back where they give you an alarm that tells you when to come back for your food. Drinks are self-service. I ordered the Southwestern Chicken, which is a baked chicken breast covered in seasoned black beans. Desert was a brownie. I enjoyed both. This place has cafe style seating & there is... More

Consistently good food and service. The burgers are wonderful. The BLT is a favorite. The salads are a great choice. Drink selections are super. Deserts are tasty. A good business meeting location.

Cafe Express does a great job with fast service and high quality foods. Ideal for a quick, tasty lunch. Plenty of great choices in sandwiched, soups and more. The Black Current ice tea is great!

I like going to Cafe Express for its sandwiches and soups (and free breadsticks!) but always leave a little dissatisfied. The food is good, but not great and I'd usually rather take my food to go than stay at the restaurant. It's a good place to go with a big group though since the selection is quite large so everyone... More

The Cafe Express on Lovers Ln shares the same menu as the other locations. The Lovers Ln location however offers a very nice patio. The patio is nicely landscaped so there is good shade and it is not next to a bust street so it is relatively quiet.

This is a good lunch spot. It has a decent selection with good quality. Not much on service as it is a walk up order with a buzzer to pick up ready food. Overall good and we have returned for a quick look.
