What Our Customers Say About Us
“I used to work in the building where 1880 Café is located and ate there almost every day. James did catering for our business and when we moved he continued to do our catering; James takes care of any request. He is amazing! If you haven't tried his café, you are missing out!” -Jennifer F.
“1880 Café by James is in my work building. It's a great place to grab lunch to-go! James, the owner, is always behind the counter making sure you are served quickly and your food is prepared correctly. He only uses the freshest ingredients. A bakery delivers their fresh bread every morning. 1880 Café has 3-4 soups daily that James makes from scratch. No bottled soups, sauces, or cans in this little joint. I love his turkey chili ... and the daily roast beef Gorgonzola Panini, it's delish!!!” -Rebecca S.
“The roast beef and Gorgonzola Panini is my favorite! The bread has a nice toasted crunch and the combination of the roast beef, Gorgonzola, and red bell peppers is perfect. The vegetable beef soup is also great, with chunks of vegetables and beef. “ -Margarita D.
“1880 Café serves the best food, fast and healthy! The reason is because the chef/owner, James makes every dish with love. Not only does the food taste yummy, but James actually cares for everyone that walks into his cafe. He knows all his clients by first name, and we all love him. I would drive from Irvine or Thousand Oaks just to eat there! A must try!” -Agnes C.
“I was delighted to find that 1880 Café serves Peet's coffee. It also carries a variety of Isabella cookies, which are always fresh and delicious. “ -Keila N.
“Located just a short walk away from my office building, I would definitely recommend this place for lunch. You can call in your order and pick it up, but walking in and ordering doesn't take that long either.” -Margarita D.

“Convenience, great soups, interesting combinations of salads and sandwiches, friendly staff, fair prices, great variety on menu, steady repeat customers. James knows his customers by name and makes everyone feel special... Recipes are unique and tasty.” - Marsha
“Love love love this breakfast/lunch spot in Century City. It's not a good day unless I visit 1880 Café for either breakfast or lunch or sometimes even both...They have an amazing selection of pastries and coffee drinks as well. James and his staff make the most delicious soups, sandwiches and salads. I have been hooked on their vegetable soup and harvest chicken salad with beets. Also that thai chicken wrap is pretty darn good. Their prices are probably the cheapest in the area too!” - C.C.
“Portions that are appropriate for what a human stomach should ingest, delicious sandwiches (my favorite is the tuna/avocado melt) that come with a nice little leafy green salad. It's a personal favorite for when I'm too lazy to pack lunch for work!” -Abbie F.
“I love their turkey cranberry sandwich. The soft roll and cranberries in it go so well. The owner, James, is so caring and makes his amazing soups from scratch every morning. If you work in Century City, it's definitely a place to try. They deliver and cater as well!” -Angela K.
“I love this place!!! Everything is good from the coffee to the pizza!!! The morning bagels are amazing and the veggie Portobello roasted pepper sandwich is wonderful!!!” -Deepa
“Food here is great especially the turkey chili & sandwiches. I like the Vietnamese Spring rolls. Great muffins and baked goods too. Prices are very reasonable. Great if you work in the building but well worth a walk if you work in one of the building close by. Give it a try! James earned my loyalty through providing delicious food at great prices.” Lovin F.
