Odyssey World Cafe Restaurant Review

: Admittedly, there’s nothing fancy about this casual spot right off the downtown park, but you can’t beat it for good food at a good price. Its eclectic menu has something for everyone and every mood, especially with daily specials such as Creole pasta, a classic French dip or tomato basil soup. Regular dishes take a journey through American, Mexican, Italian, Asian and even Greek flavors; among our favorites are the grilled salmon sandwich with pesto mayo, three olive pasta, and the Bombay curried chicken salad. Desserts are pretty basic, but a lemon bar or brownie is often all that’s needed. Bottled beer and local wines are available. Order up at the counter, take a seat, and your food will be brought to you.
