Enjoyed brunch here with my Dad. It was Mom's favorite place to eat. Our first time back here after loosing mom last year. We ordered Mom's favorite soup and salad and of course it was always been so tasty and delicious. Dad and I had a pleasant time specially when our servers was friendly and always checking in on us for our needs. We will return.
Let me start off by saying how excited I was to eat here!! I usually by there pizza in a box at the grocery store which my kids enjoy. The food was so Delicious and tasteful. The picture will show for it! We were fortunate to get a great server by the name of Rachel! who was very nice. Customer service was on point. Keep up the Great service!
3-4 stars for the food, but rounding down for the slowwwww service. I haven't been back to CPK in a few years, and was surprised to see how much their menu had expanded! In addition to their pizzas, they now have a lengthy appetizers section, pastas, and other entrees. They don't take reservations ahead of time, and it was crowded but not packed around noon on Tuesday. We tried: -Sticky Asian Cauliflower ($9.49, yelp.com/user_local_phot… ): Yum- the sauce on the cauliflower was great, and they fried it perfectly. However, they don't give you much for the price. -White Corn Guacamole & Chips ($5.79): Solid, but they almost give you more corn than avocado. This is also a small portion, so only order if you don't need to share with a lot of people (or everyone only wants a small bite). -Avocado Club Egg Rolls (Filled w/Avocado, Chicken, Tomato, Cheese, Bacon, Served w/Ranchito Sauce & Herb Ranch, $13.49): Ok, but not as good as other versions of avocado egg roll I've had. The wrapper is also really thick- skip! -Banh Mi Bowl (Quinoa, Baby Kale, Cilantro, Mint, Grilled Chicken, Watermelon Radish, Avocado, Cucumber, Carrot, Bean Sprouts, Scallions, Served w/Chili-Lime Vinaigrette & Serrano Peppers, $16.49, yelp.com/user_local_phot… ): This was a solid bowl for the price, and they give you a large portion. I probably could've finished this in one sitting if I didn't have any appetizers, but I would've been stuffed. I would order this again. -Chicken Piccata (w/Linguini Fini, Lemon, Capers, Cream, $18.39): This was a giant portion, and a good value for the price. However, I thought this sauce was too lemony, and really sour. The chicken was cooked well though, and the linguini was a perfect al dente. -Chocolate Souffle a la Mode ($9.94): Yikes, not good! The chocolate souffle was wayyyyyy to dense and chocolate-y, and sweet. The ice cream was great (it's Haagen-Daz), and they give you a big scoop. I would recommend just ordering a scoop of ice cream on the side. We came for a birthday, and they brought out a complimentary birthday sundae, which was the perfect size for an individual dessert. The only real negative of the meal was the super slow service. It took them a while to take our orders, and also a while for all the food to arrive. After that, our server completely disappeared, and it took a REALLY long time to order dessert and get our check (30-45 minutes just for this). We finally had to flag down another server, who found our original server. Aside from the service, I would come back to CPK for their bowls and to try additional entree items (such as their salmon or steak). Parking was easy to find during the weekday lunch hours.
