Cafeteria food w/o airport prices

I was about half an hour early for picking up my sister from the airport, so I was looking for a place to sit and relax. Since I was already on the road to the airport, there weren't very many shops around. Luckily I spotted Cafe Runway (huge awning) and was able to turn around at the gas station.
Being after 4pm, I didn't expect it to be busy (and it wasn't). I would only assume that they probably cater more to the lunch crowd of local businesses. I entered into a huge cafeteria. The kitchen and counters were all the way in the back and I felt a little awkward walking so far while the owner made eye contact my entire way there.

It was a little overwhelming trying to make a decision while he waited. I had to quickly absorb the large menu while at the same time looking at the counters to see what ready-made items were available. I finally decided on a simple ham and swiss sandwich.

I grabbed a seat in the well-lit dining area which kind of reminded me of a hospital cafeteria. Huge seating section that was well-spaced and old 80's chairs and tables. I sat and read the paper for about 2 minutes until a lady said my order was up.

Sandwich was good, but nothing spectacular. Prices were good. Service was good - the only thing was that while I was eating, the lady who made my sandwich, sat at the table behind me (out of all the other empty tables around) and starting chatting on the phone. Was kinda distracting me from enjoying the paper.

Overall, a good pitstop before hitting the high prices of the airport fare.
