Wonderful, homey, comfortable - this cafe is the best! The coffee is super, the food, while a limited menu, is high quality and tasty. The staff is friendly, playful and witty. They interact well with customers and work together well, creating a very positive vibe.
A great place to work on your laptop! Come in, fuel up and plug into the Matrix.
Cafe Express has done a 180! – Update on Cafe Express in Southeast Evanston: Since the new owners, John and Brian have taken over, this place has had a major gut rehab in terms of the service, attitude, product quality and overall atmosphere! My wife and I experienced the "old" Cafe Express, and unfortunately had to agree with some of the other reviewer's disparaging comments. The "new" Cafe Express is super family friendly, but frequented by plently of childless couples and individuals (so it's a good balance between the two). Brian and John infuse a long-awaited sense of small town, local community with their "happy to see you" smiles and uncanny ability to remember the smallest details of your life. They're wifi friendly, brew award-winning coffee and a great selection of roles, light sandwiches and juices. They're have life acoustic music this Saturday night, if that's any indicator of how this place has turned around.
Not much to like – I really try hard to support local businesses, especially when they get crowded out by corporate giants like Starbucks. That said, I can't justify Cafe Express South. The food is mediocre at best, the coffee is anything but special, the seats are uncomfortable (except outside), the staff's attitude ranges from lousy to downright ornery and there's no wireless internet access. Please, give me just one good reason to go and I'll be there!
