Best Spot for a Healthy Lunch – Great place for healthy chicken. California Chicken Cafe is perfect for a quick lunch during a work break. It is light and healthy food which doesn't sacrifice quality for flavor. They have great salads and wraps.
The inside is nice and clean which puts it above other chicken places which have grease all over the place. I recommend it to all people who work locally and need a good place for a healthy lunch.
There's much more than chicken at this healthy, quick-serve cafe. – In Short
At midday this simple, counter-service eatery draws a business-lunch crowd, but come evening local gym rats, police officers and firemen line up for the non-greasy grub. Patrons place orders at the register and wait for their orders of the signature rotisserie chicken and sides like sweet butternut squash and slightly spicy red potatoes. The menu also offers huge, crisp salads and fresh wrap sandwiches, including a popular vegetarian pita stuffed with rice, vegetables and ranch dressing.
Healthy & great priced lunch for those in a rush – I love CCC, I think I could go for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The food is incredibly delicious but it is at such a great price. Food is prepared before your eyes and you always get the food within a couple of minutes. They even let you order in advance and when you come pick up, it's ready! Just wonderful place to eat!
Great wraps & chicken – The food at CCC is AMAZING! Their portions are large (i've never been able to finish their salads). Their chix caesar is great. At first I was a little hesitant about the pita-croutons and always picked them out. I finally got a little adventurous and tested them out and now I LOVE PITA-CROUTONS!!!!! Warning: This restaurant is VERY cold. If you plan on eating there (takeout is a great option) definitely bring a sweatshirt. It feels like they set the thermostat around 65 degrees. Brrrrr!
LOVE THIS PLACE – I crave this food sometimes, it is that good. It is actually pretty basic food, but it is healthly and yummy and always filling. The best plan is to take-out. During rush hours the place is packed, it is impossible to find parking, and you are gonna wait in line. I suggest calling your order in and then go pick it up. I do it all the time. I wish they had delivery.
Best Salad eva! – Great salad and sides. Add the BBQ sauce and you will be at CCC every day of the week! Great location and fast service. One manager in particular is rude. I tried ordering a kids meal to go for my son, and he refused to sell it.
Overall the food is great.
I eat here like 6 days a week. – I eat at this place almost everyday for lunch. I have the vegetable salad with chicken and never get tired of it. The food is very fresh and can be very healthy if you are careful what you pick from the menu.
Healthy, Fast, and Good! – I've always loved this place! I agree with some other reviewers---you need to open more of them in L.A.! Also, wish they were open on Sundays! If you want healthy, fast, not expensive (though still considered a bit pricey for a fast-food place), but still tasty, this is the place. I just wish they were open on Sundays!!!! I love their butternut squash and great wraps and salads and ESPECIALLY their toasted pita croutons!
excellent lunch spot – This place is fast and the food is consistently good. It is a place I usually go to with friends for lunch, agter auditions. It's usually packed for lunch but the staff is pretty quick. To avoid the line I sometimes call in my order (chinese chicken wrap is my favorite with their yummy potatoes) and take it to go.
