Not completely sure about this, but I'm pretty damn sure that's not ok. You should bring this up to the people in charge. Then again if it is well labeled that it's expired food, and your choice to eat it or not, you kindof deserve it.

Expired could mean it's the end of the breakfast period. In the food industry, it's considered a health and sanitation issue to put it back in the fridge or in the selling case the next day so food not sold is considered "expired". My friend brings home doughnuts all the time from his job for this very reason. They aren't spoiled at all, but their shelf life at the store is over.

Expiration dates are rather arbitrary and mostly meaningless. Every piece of food is different and every location has different things in the air, so things will not spoil at the same rate. In addition, we're talking about the food industry here, not just some food sitting in someone's pantry. Even grocery stores get rid of things before the sell by dates. And since this is a cafe, any food that they prepared for the coming day that didn't get sold would most likely be thrown out.

This. Expiration dates are something retailers constructed to avoid them being blamed when someone gets sick from eating old food. However, given the legislative nature in some areas, people went a bit overboard with rules and regulations. Current laws in most western nations requires ALL consumable items to have an expiration date, which is just plain ridiculous. I mean, an expiration date on salt? Really?

Sounds like the perfect lawsuit

There are no grounds for a personal lawsuit. OP clearly knew it was expired food and even said as much. They still chose to eat it despite that knowledge. However, it could be a violation of OSHA, in which case the company could receive a fine.

The way I understood it, the workplace takes food that the cafe won't serve anymore and leaves it out for the employees. I doubt you'd have to worry about them serving expired food to customers.
