Love this place!! I come here once or twice a week for breakfast and to grab chocolate croissants when I visit my boyfriend since he's obsessed with them . I love their Waldorf chicken salad, it has crisp green apples and cranberries, oh and this really delicious dressing that I would like for my house! Their gluten free granola bars are very filling and tasty, I like the raisin ones but they offer ones with chocolate too. My 'but' is that the last two times I've ordered the maple bacon egg and cheese to go (eat on my way to work) on gluten free bread, it hasn't had the maple which is so disappointing when I'm halfway to work. Doesn't seem like much but that maple is what makes the sandwich and is the part o look forward to most! Especially on the gluten free bread it needs that flavor, but I should add that they have some of the best gluten free bread. From now on when picking up my orders I will clearly ask that it has the maple ;) try this place out!

Hi There,

I am so sorry to hear about your issues with our Maple, Bacon & Egg sandwich on GF bread. I will talk to our kitchen staff & remedy the situation. You're right, that the sandwich just isn't the same without enough Maple. I hope you'll give us another chance.

I recently had the chicken salad sandwich special and it was fantastic. Delicious artisan bread with raisins, wish it was on the regular menu. Always offering a special sandwich of the day along with a large menu of creative sandwiches. This is not your ordinary deli experience at all- all meats are fresh roasted not the thin deli-style slices you get elsewhere. Nice selection of unique baked goods as well. Prices are a little high - but you are paying for the quality ingredients and it's worth it. Inside and outside tables available.

Needed a quiet spot to conduct an interview and Cafe Xpresso was perfect. The sandwiches and salads are both excellent and their desserts are divine! I have eaten here about 6 times and have no complaints at all!

I work right next door to Cafe Xpresso and visit them almost every day. The staff is always friendly, the drinks are always fresh (especially their strawberry smoothies), and the food is always delicious. I love that I can support another local business while eating quality service and food.
