I enjoy coming here to get the Rachael, and it is always very good. My boyfriend likes the monte cristo, but I could never eat such a heavy sandwhich. He swears by it, and always begs to eat here though.

I went here for some veggie sandwiches. The owners themselves made and served hot vegetarian sandwiches, well past lunch time. They were tasty but we felt they were a bit oily. I wish they would use some kind of tofu. We could see lot of...More
