We ate lunch there today. We ordered salads and soup. Outstanding. First, each salad was enough for two people and very fresh. The other notable thing was the customer service. We had Libby, who took special care of each table with a friendly smile and...More

Center Street Cafe offers a huge menu of unique sandwiches and soups and house specials. You will probably not find these combinations anywhere else. The swamp soup and pork belly mac and cheese are superb.
