This cafe, meeting place is very popular. All kinds of small groups and friendly get togethers gather here. Excellent sandwiches, salads, soups. There is only one kind of decaf, but at least there is one. I appreciate the non-dairy milks, and the fact that they will make me a dairy free hot cocoa. I end up at btc at least... More

Excellent homemade soups and you can construct a sandwich on paper and they will build it for you. Highly recommend.

My 1st sandwich from here was a turkey bacon melt. It was very delicious! It was piled high with turkey and it had a ton of mayo on it (luckily I love a ton of mayo and was actually impressed that they put so much on without asking). 2nd sandwich was again the turkey bacon bc the 1st one was...
