As far as salad bars go, this is one of the best ones I've been to. The fact that I can use romaine or spinach instead of plain old iceberg for my salad, makes me like this place. It seems like there are a few more salad toppings than most places offer- like chickpeas, shredded cabbage, red onions. The hot food is OK. If nothing else looks good to me, there are always baked potatoes that I can take back over to the salad bar for toppings. The soups are hit or miss- but usually there are one or two vegetarian ones.

This is our go-to place for taking out-of-town guests and family members who aren't into trying anything "different." The food can be a little on the boring side, but there is something for everyone and it's possible to eat a healthy meal here.

I never found much to eat, there's only so much salad one can eat. My fiance noticed that after we would eat there, he would get this sore on his nose, this happened 4 out of the 4 times we went. Once we noticed this trend, we stopped going, and he has never gotten it again. I can't say absolutely that it was because of Q Cumbers, but it's not worth it to go back to find out.

I used to frequent this place when I worked in the area many years ago. It was never terribly impressive. It's your typical buffet-style place with a salad bar, nothing remarkable really.

Q Cumbers may be classified by some as a basic iceberg lettuce salad bar, but it IS a salad bar in a town largely devoid of them; a town largely devoid of anyplace to get fresh food (beyond the produce section at grocery store), or one of those 12-item so-called "salad bars" (as an ancillary to the main courses) at other places. In a world that is increasingly beginning to (finally) understand the true radical difference between fresh, real food and deranged, degraded, heavily-processed, and purported "food" (with the life cooked to death out of them), Q Cumbers offers people of the Twin Cities an opportunity to consume Real Food. Plus, they do have romaine lettuce, spinach, and a great many vegan options, including delicious vegan soups. Please don't let salad bar naysayers dissuade you from checking out Q Cumbers. (Plus, Q Cumbers floods the market with coupons, so lunch can be had for $6. I'd say that's pretty cheap for all you eat Real Fresh Food.)

Q Cumbers is one of my new favorite places in the Twin Cities. This place has the best salad bar around. They have things most salad bars don't, like more than one type of lettuce, chickpeas, and a big selection of toppings. In addition, they always have hot veg. food and soups. The restaurant atmosphere is also very pleasing, probably a little bit on the fancy side. The only downfall to this place is that the desserts consist mainly of fruit. Anyway, if you like buffets, you should definitely try this place.

I think this place is too pricey for what it is. Sure, you can eat as much as you want, but they don't have many exciting vegan options - your basic iceburg lettuce salad bar.
