This place is neatly decorated and very busy at lunch time! It's a great place to meet friends for lunch, but get there early to avoid the rush! Or get your meal to go. They serve the best authentic Gyro in the area!

We recently used Café American for a catering job. This was the 3rd time we used them. Same menu each time...but this time they shrank the portions and we ran out of food! As caterers it is their job to inform the client if things (portions) have changed and to advise us as to the correct portions to order. I... More

We were in town for an event. We heard about Cafe American from locals. Crab bisque and spicy chicken wrap were fabulous for us.

This place is located in a strip mall off from Washington St. Not a high profile area. However word of mouth with plenty of repeat customers keeps this restaurant busy for good reasons. The food is fantastic, fresh, hot. Prices are very resonable. The must have is the Portabella Mushroom soup. Also the traditional gyro was delcious. I also will... More

My wife and I recently ordered carryout from this restaurant. The food was great but they did not put any utensils in there for us to eat with, so unfortunately I had to run next door to the restaurant where my wife works to get untensils.

If you like good soups, salads and sandwiches, this is your place. I like that the lunch special where you can get a cup of soup and 1/2 a sandwich or 1/2 salad combo. It really hits the spot for lunch.

The food is quick and filling, for a lunch. Good place to meet up with colleagues and to spend 20 minutes noshing on some sandwiches or soup. It gets pretty full during lunch, get there early....
