Eclectic is well named. We enjoyed reasonable counter service with hot food delivered to table outside. The chicken-veggie soup was a hot delight as was the turkey sandwich. Well worth seeking out.

Great lunch on a busy Saturday after Thanksgiving. Delicious roasted mushroom soup. Grilled cheese with apples so good. Flavored water or tea was a great addition to lunch.

Great lunch spot nestled in a an old brick building on Short Central, a pedestrian only downtown street. The menu is varied and there are always daily specials. We had a friend's birthday lunch there and sat out side and it was lovely.

Great little lunch place. I love their salads. I have never had a bad meal there. They have indoor or patio seating and great service. I am never disappointed when I choose to eat there!

They have some familiar menu items and also some unusual offerings but all is good and very moderately priced.

Had lunch here today. My friend had the "house" salad with chicken. I had one of the daily special wraps: chicken, bacon, onions (I left these out!), avocado, cheese and greens with a side salad -- a lot of food -- and delicious! Staff is courteous and friendly. My wrap and drink was a little over $11. Well worth it.

This little gem is hidden away on "Short Central"...only steps from the parking garage in the historic downtown area. Their food is fresh and the menu has a great selection of salads/sandwiches. They also have great daily specials!

There are tons of fresh selections to chose from at Electic Chef. I've been a fan of this place for years! It never disappoints. You must get desert if you go there!
