The pastrami sandwich is delicious and well cooked. It is always fresh. The wait can be long but you can always call in your order. They make the sourdough bread fresh in house.

This place is quaint and D'Lish. Artisan bread and pastries with coffe, lattes, etc. also serves breakfast until 10:30am and lunch afterwards. A must try! Everything tasted fantastic! The service was also excellent.

They have a variety of good selections. I could only eat half of their portion. It is located next to mission inn. They have tables outside. My favorite thing to do is eat my meal outside Simple Simons .
