We frequent this place and always leave satisfied and happy. The best is the BLT with chicken breast and avocado. They bake everything on site. First rate in every way for a great lunch at very fair prices. True home touch quality.

The Sandwich Shop is a casual little restaurant. Service is excellent. The menu is not extensive, but the sandwiches are well proportioned and delicious. Highly recommended
