If you are up around Quail Springs Mall and want a quick meal then stop by one of my favorites, Café 7. This is one of my favorite places to stop for lunch and the food is better than what you can find in the mall. Located in a strip mall to the west of Quail Springs Mall, this small restaurant does get full quick during the lunch rush. Once you get in, grab one of the menu slips, you chose between pizza, pasta, sandwiches, and salads, put your name on it and select what you want from the menu slip (I really don’t have a better name for the slip of paper you fill out). Place your order, then grab a seat.
I have my favorite- baked macaroni and cheese. Listed on the pasta slip, it is mac and cheese with tomatoes and bacon mixed in, then baked with breadcrumbs on top. Always served with garlic bread, this is easily the best thing on the menu. Yes I have tried other pasta’s, a pizza and a couple of their sandwiches and it’s all been good but I always come back to the mac and cheese. Of course that’s all that Mae will eat even if she doesn’t want the bacon (kid isn’t right in the head, hates bacon).
Only down side is that it is small and does fill up quickly. The lunch crowd gets there around 11:30a but is gone by 1p. The staff has always been friendly and everything has been clean. This review is only for the Northwest OKC location, there is another downtown. I do see on their website that the downtown location does have breakfast as well, so I might have to fight the traffic and try it sometime. I’m giving it 5 strips of bacon, but try to avoid the crowds.
