Stopped here at the recommendation of a family member who lives in Burlington. Cute little sandwich shop, but busy, so be ready to order when it’s your turn. Food is fresh and sandwiches are hearty. Enjoyed the VT smoked turkey and cheddar on wheat.

When you're on Church Street in the middle of the summer and all the crowds and you need some lunch, this is an excellent option! Very hearty sandwiches and really tasty. You can eat inside or outside. They prepare things pretty fast, even when busy.
