Had lunch here arriving about 1pm. All but two salads were sold out and I got the last of one of them! The lentils and feta as well as the chicken curry are excellent , well seasoned and lots of chicken in the curry.

Nice salads, sandwiches and other things where the main thing is bread. Soups also available. You can even get a guacamole side with bread. Or egg salad, or salads, or whatever... Nice industrial chic arrangement with nice cool service.
