Sandwiches were awful. We were hungry and intrigued by their menu. Their homemade bread was dry, they forgot the provolone, the roasted peppers were minuscule, not enough spread. Really disappointing and the lady taking the order was a bit ornery. We ordered 5 sandwiches to...More

We had brutal service only to be matched by over paying for small sandwiches. Not filling, not tasty. Avoid at all costs.

I had a wonderful chicken salad sandwich, and my companion had a generous bowl of chicken noodle soup. It is a charming place for some healthy options. I would like to try breakfast next time.

The sandwiches were really good. We arrived at 2:30pm and were limited to the types of bread and cheese. It appears this place has a lot of regular happy customers that come for the good food. We ended up still getting 2 delicious sandwiches.

I ordered a salad with grilled chicken. The salad was served in a small bowl - one you would have for a side salad with dinner. There was barely any food in the bowl - some barely cut up greens, four or five tasteless grape...More
