I got food poisoning from this restaurant this past Saturday. I ordered the french toast sandwich and hashbrown casserole off the brunch menu and regretted the the rest of the night. I was deathly ill!! It was not good and our guests ordered different things off the brunch menu and said it was average/leaning on poor. Over priced! I will NEVER eat here again!!!!!!
Avoid. Over-priced food that is bland bordering on gross. I made it 1/2 way through my last sandwich and threw the rest away. Never again!
Kind of pricey for so-so food – I didn't think there was anything special about the food. It's not bad but it's not worth the price or the "hype." I don't think the cupcakes were really special - nothing that you couldn't get at a grocery store bakery. The staff was fairly friendly and the atmosphere seemed nice enough. I do like that they have some choices on the menu that seem fairly healthy (or at least give you a fair shot at making healthier choices!) I won't turn down a meal there but I won't go out of my way to visit, either.
Horrible brunch-Great Cupcakes! – This place is overrated, the food is bland, over or undercooked and definitely overpriced, but the kids love the cupcakes and I finally tried and and they are good! Great cake, great icing, not too sweet, but definitely sweet tooth satisfying.
Sunday brunch (food) is awful! – We really don?t understand why this place got high reviews on ?City Search?.
The ?Carolina Bakery? reminded us of a cafeteria with a modern theme and the food absolutely had No Taste. We spent over $16.00 on brunch that was cold couldn?t finish because it was awful! (Country brunch and French toast with ham and cheddar cheese.) We were so dissatisfied we left and went somewhere else. I have lived in Raleigh for more than 30 years and have never been to a restaurant like this and been this dissatisfied.
The ?Carolina Bakery? management also might have their help not clean the windows when people are eating! I sure there is other times during the day it could be done.
Don?t believe ?City Search? raving reviews!
Fresh, Fun, and Reasonably Priced – YUM! Just tried this place for the first time and we were very pleased. For under $8, we got 1/2 a turkey sandwich (REAL shredded turkey, not that rubbery deli-meat kind, on fresh bread, with a nice dressing, sprouts, and lettuce), a cup of Broccoli-Cheddar Soup (delicious, creamy, and cheesy), a bag of pretzels, and 2 drinks. I typically don't like turkey sandwiches unless they're hot, but this one was perfect! For an extra $3 and change, we got a vanilla cupcake (good, but not amazing) and an "inside out peanutbutter cup" (AMAZING -- gooey and rich). Very full and it was very affordable.
The place itself is clean, cool, and the staff was friendly. I look forward to going back soon and trying something else!
great new salads! – The new salads are wonderful AND filling. I recommend the mediterranian salad. They have great vegetarian options as well as standard deli sandwiches. The only thing i don't like about this restaurant is that the bakery doesn't have many whole wheat or hearty grain baked goods.
The Cafe Carolina Salad – I've told several friends the Cafe Carolina Salad is the best salad in town. Full of pungent gorgonzola, sugared pecans, sweet, fresh strawberries and crisp, tender lettuce, to name a few, the ingredients create a personality that won't quit. Consistently enjoyable, Cafe Carolina has a winning combination with this offering.
Best Salads in the triangle – Their new Chicken Fiesta Salad is terrific, so much flavor and quality...welll worth the trip there. I hear that the Signature Salad is equally excellent. The staff is so friendly and helpful, you can alter your salad, sandwich, flatbread, just ask. You have to try this place!
