This place is an excellent soup and sandwich joint. Went on a Sunday, they close at 3pm. There is limited seating inside and out. The food menu is great and fresh. Had the chicken and waffle sandwich which was very tasty.

We picked up sandwiches here for a bike trip around Mewport and enjoyed them so much we went back for lunch the next day. If we hadn’t had breakfast at our hotel, we would have come for breakfast, too.
