A favorite place for lunch and to pick up one of their incredible loaves of bread. So many great flavors to choose from! Rye is still the one we take home most often.

Ahhh with prices, sorry. The prices were reasonable for the food we got, I wouldn't call the place low budget but we wouldn't hesitate to go back here again and again.
