Food was good. Lots of choices and saver meals. My only complaint was the lady cashier. ( we didn't know that at the time) She was also dishing up food so we went by the drinks(no one there) passed the rolls ( no one there) to check out. Here she come. I asked about drinks and a roll. Her smart answer to me was " well I guess you want me to be in 3 places at once". I snipped back "no obviously your manager does." Didn't like her attitude and will not go back. 😠

This restaurant has a charming premise. Despite literally having cafeteria in the name I was surprised when I discovered that this restaurant is, in fact, set up like a cafeteria. I enjoyed my overall dining experience. I will say that I found the food to be slightly over salted and I thought the pricing was perhaps a tad bit aggressive. Despite these issues I would definitely be willing to return to this establishment and try other dishes. The staff was friendly and my full review

Decent food, clean, quiet store. A bit on the expensive side, however. It's not a buffet. I ordered crusted tilapia and it was quite good. Two pieces of fish, perhaps 8 ounces total, plus one side, a roll, a cookie and a drink was about $14 after taxes. The drink refills are free, however. The staff is very attentive and helpful.
