A word to the public who wish to eat here.

Their hours are extremely variable and what is posted here is absolutely not what they follow. There 2 times they have been closed at 3:30 pm and 4 pm.

They have raised their prices which are now extreme. The food is good but it is way over priced.

They have ample staff but nobody pays attention to the cleanliness nor stocks need supplies at tables.

The new owner needs pay attention to detail and have hours which are convenient to the public and not just close the doors on a whim.

I have gone to this establishment at least once a week but that is ceasing. This place used to jump out as a great alternative but now it's just another whatever.

Great taste, PLENTY of food!

My husband and I tried Boca's for the first time last Friday(dinner time) and we were both super impressed. I mentioned to my husband about the comment before about someone saying that they left hungry and he was like well I guess we'll see. Oh my goodness, I couldn't even finish half my sandwich before I was full and this was without eating lunch that day.
We ordered two sandwiches, one soup, one salad, and two different desserts. I did love the soup so much that I would like to get a larger portion of it by itself (the portion that comes as a side is quite tiny).

We'll be back for sure, can't wait to try something different.

Good taste, small portions

Tried this place for the first time and the taste was wonderful. I will be back to try something else as many of the sandwiches and salads looked tempting. The sandwich I had was good as well as the salad I had as a side.

The place is small but the decor, with local artists, is nice. My only problem is that I was not full when I left. The taste was good, but the portion was small. It makes for a better lunch option than dinner. Or maybe a late night stop.

My Husband and I are foodies and love trying new places. Well let me tell you Boca Cafe is just what Topeka needs more of. The staff was very knowledgeable, and freindly. The Tomato Basil soup was divine and the Monte Cristo Sandwich was a very nice addition. My Husband had the EL Diablo it melted in your mouth. I would highly recommend this eaterey and will be returning.

A unique place

It's a little different approach than many. It looks small, but the staff were very helpful and pleasant. Three of us had lunch there last week, and we all enjoyed our sandwiches (the Cuban, the BBQ, and the special that day, the Monte Cristo). Two had the soup of the day, mushroom/brie, reportedly awesome. I had a side salad (the Roman) that had homemade sunflower seed pesto, very good.

The prices are certainly right--a sandwich, side and drink for right under $10 in my case (that's with tax). They need a website with their menu on it that I can link people to! We will be back.

I checked out this place for the first time yesterday on reference from multiple people at Washburn. I tried the barbecue sandwich and it came with tomato basil soup and a drink for under $8. I was very full after and very impressed with the meal. The soup had great texture and flavor, as did the sandwich.
I will DEFINITELY be back.
