We frequently go to the Wheat Cafe to celebrate birthdays. The food is superb, the service is excellent, and it is a good value. There are always fresh flowers on the table and white tablecloths, so it makes our luncheon feel special. I especially like the creative way the food is prepared and the desserts are always delicious.

A great moderate price restaurant with excellent foods and service. Also, the gorgeous lighting at front of Mac Art building is a bonus for you to walk around after dinner. Book reservation now because they are opened at very limited day.

The service was very good. Our server, Shannon was polite and helpful and came to our table several times to see if we needed anything. The Cheese Broccoli soup as delicious. The Chicken was tender and plenty but my friend had the stew and felt that there wasn't enough meat and the portion was small.
Dessert was very good and presented very nicely.
We'll be back again for lunch, soon.

I was looking forward to the Central Farmlands menu and it did not disappoint. Everything was delicious and so fresh. The portions were just the right serving size for a lunch so I was able to indulge in a dessert. The service was friendly and attentive. I can't wait to return for the Mid-Atlantic offering in December.

The beef stew was superb. The pumpkin cheesecake had a great crust and really good flavor. Kristopher (KC) provided excellent service. Overall, great place, great food, and great service.

Great food, well-prepared and beautifully arranged on plate. Usual ingredients but always with a surprise how they are married e.g. red sweet peppers in the beef stew. (I don't do that.) The stew was centered on a mashed potato ring . Wonderful presentation!
The appetizer was a Wild Mushroom Tart. Absolutely delicious. The chef graciously shared the recipe when I asked. After reading the Basic Pate Dough part, I'll let him do it! The dessert held 3 parts-too many for me. I was so full already but I had to eat it!

The food was outstanding but another highlight was our server. She was friendly, confident, and took excellent care of us.

I found this place to be very nice. It is small, so it's not load when you are there. The lunch is served and cooked by the COD students. You only have 2 choices for each course, but they both were very good. They seam to have different menus' about every 6 weeks, so I will be going to have another menu later this month. I'm looking forward to it. The price is great for the amount of food that you get.

We have been to the Wheat Cafe several times, generally to celebrate a birthday, and found it first rate in every way. The food is delicious, the surroundings lovely, and the service excellent. I particularly like having fresh flowers on the table to make the experience feel more special.
