If you’re looking for a good, quick meal Presto Cafe is a solid option. It definitely isn’t fast-food in terms of that level of quality (or lack thereof) and the prices reflect that. Don’t come here expecting a dollar menu and the typical crap that would be available on one. While not perfect, the food is a tasty step up from many cafes and fast-casual spots.

They’ve got a variety of salads, pre-made and laid out on their counter sitting on a bed of ice. They’re available by the scoop: 1 scoop for $4.25, 2 for $8.25, or 3 for $11.50. The tandoori chicken salad was good, but lacked the bold, spiciness that I expected.

Their ham and cheese sandwich ($8.99), on the other hand, is packed with flavor and varying textures with its smoked ham, gruyere cheese, blueberries, Funions, and chili mayo on bacon cheese bread. It might seem like an odd combination, but it all worked in a bizarre yet delicious way.

In addition to salads and sandwiches, they’ve got a couple soup options and pides, a sort of flatbread dish shaped like a boat with the edges rolled up and two ends knotted. There are three types with ingredients ranging from feta, olives, red peppers, mozzarella, and meatballs. Smoothies are also available.

Clearly they’re targeting a more health conscious crowd or at least folks who care about ingredients and want something different than the fast food/sandwich shops that litter every street corner. Prices prevent me from making this my daily lunch spot, but Presto Cafe is a welcome change of pace.
