Cary Cafe is wonderful for breakfast, lunch or just to grab a quick cup of coffee on the way in to work. The owners are friendly and the food is great. They are even happy to accomodate special requests. I've used Cary Cafe for catering and small office gatherings at the restaurant too. Always wonderful!

Pros: Saturday morning breakfast!

.

I have been a regular since Cary Cafe opened. It is consistently good. The food is fresh and each order is made to order ... this is not fast food. This is like a Mom and Pop cafe ... because it is. A warm and friendly atmosphere.

Try the chicken salad. And, the peach tea is the BEST!

Do not miss the oatmeal raisin cookies ... but leave one for me.

Saturday morning breakfast includes Stone Ground grits and the area's best toast.

There are lots of homemade desserts and take home Heat & Eat Meals.

This is my favorite local restaurant in Cary.

The Cary Cafe is a wonderful place that is warm with good food and friendly atmosphere. I discovered it 12 years ago and you can usually find me there for morning coffee. Abdul and Vicky are special people and prepare wondeful meals. I have recommended the Cafe to many friends and they too have had the same experience. \r

Thanks Abdul and Vicky!

It is so obvious that the positive reviews here are all written by the Cary Cafe owners and staff!\r

The food my wife and I ordered was not fresh at all. It was like getting fast food that had been under the warming light for several hours. I had the Spaghetti Pie (a special?) and my wife ordered the Greek fare salad with Chicken. We took it home to eat...my wife ate three bites and said it was terrible and threw it out!\r
And as I said, my Spaghetti Pie was very stale and totally void of any flavor!\r
\r
All I can say... Owners....quit writing your own reviews!!!

Cons: Very Pricey, very Stale

This place has a good quality of sandwiches and light lunch entrees and salads that are just right. They keep their website updated with the three or four specials of the week. It's also nice since it's counter service and you don't have to wait for servers and it makes it easy for each person to pay for their own meals instead of splitting checks. I go there a lot because of the specials but the regular menu is good, too. I haven't been there for breakfast but I hear it's great.

The only problem I found with Cary Cafe was when I tried to go for dinner the last time in the area and found them close. I forgot then only are open until about 2 pm. What I enjoyed the most there was the freshly made quiche plate that comes with a bowl of soup (or salad), fresh fruit and a cookie. The next time I went over for lunch I had the Greek plate with spanikopeta, hummus, pita, and Greek salad - I suggest ordering their "weekly plates", they are a great deal. Service both times was very good and quick delivery of food after ordering. Prices are great too!

I have not had breakfast here yet, but if I am ever in the RDU area overnight I will try their breakfast menu.

Tired of the same old sandwich? Cary Cafe has a fresh, unique twist to everything they serve. The menu, though simple, is surprisingly gourmet. Their chicken salad is the best, daily quiches and soups are always flavorful, and the portabella chicken quesadilla is my personal favorite. With an ever varying menu, Cary Cafe is my favorite weekday lunch spot. \r

Though I have not had a need for catering services since discovering them, Cary Cafe will be my 1st call when I do.

We didn't have a clue what to do when we walked in..Sit down or go to the counter.. There was no breakfast menu, no prices anywhere but since it looked casual we figured it was inexpensive.. We were sadly mistaken.. 14 bucks for some french toast, bacon, and waffle seems like gouging.. This is with no coffee, juice, or anything else.. To top it all off we were provided corn syrup based log cabin syrup to top their ""gourmet"" delights.. When our overpriced experience was over we were kindly greeted by a sign reminding is our duty as patrons to bus our own table.. Overall it was not a good breakfast experience, because of the value was not reflected by the service or quality of food..
