Friendly service, with broad menu of sandwiches and coffees. A "theological" environment, with sandwiches named for Wesley, Calvin, C. S. Lewis. The walls are lined with commentaries and other theological treasures.

This is THE lunch spot in Wilmore. A deli style menu and informal seating with available games, books and newspapers. You will rub elbows with some of the finest biblical scholars in contemporary Wesleyan theology.
