Reviews for Broaster Cafe

Cheap sandwiches, not the best service – I used to work about a block from here, and when feeling hungry (which is always) and lazy (also always), I would walk down to Cafico to order a sandwich. If you go between 11:30am and 1pm, you'll see a loooooong line of Civic Center workers, all queued up for their sandwiches. So, the ladies behind the counter do have to work quite briskly, and they do. But be warned: If you try to make a substitution, they will get it wrong every time. So you want the Italian panini with no ham? Check. Get back to the office, unwrap your sandwich, and you'll find a big, fat, greasy ham sandwich. Want mayo but no mustard? Um, sure. Settle down in your cubicle, unwrap your order, and find that they put half a jar of mustard on your sandwich, but no mayo. Now, these may seem like petty complaints (so I'm petty? So what?!), but it's seriously annoying when I'm ravenously hungry and I get a sandwich that's the exact opposite of what I ordered. And this happened to me over and over again -- to the point where I'd actually check my sandwich before leaving the place to make sure they got it right. So, go here for a quick and cheap lunch, but either order something off the board or check your sandwich before leaving.

Vinaigraitte please – Sheesh, whoever heard of a glob of mayo being considered a vinaigraitte dressing for a garden salad? I tried to eat it, added the mayo to the salad and shook the plastic container to within an inch of its life. Unimpressed, it simply settled into a smeared layer on top and the lettuce, carrots, cucumber and cabbage were not at all improved by the flavor of it.

User review by jennyb123 – They have wonderful croissants. Fluffy and always fresh. The girls there are really nice and remember me by my name.
