Amanda's sandwiches and pastries are fabulous! All handmade with love--nothing "processed." Her chicken salad sandwich is the best I've ever eaten anywhere! Everyone seems to love her pastas (side) as well, and often she will offer homemade bierocks. If you don't have room for a gooey bar, take one to go. Mmmmm mmm! Enjoy!

My wife and I very much enjoyed our lunch here. The service was friendly and pretty quick. I had the roast beef panini and my wife had a turkey, bacon, and swiss cheese panini and they were both yummy. Their iced tea was also very good. We enjoyed browsing around the place and looking at all the antiques, quilts, and... More

I shared a vegetarian sandwich with my friend and it was so fresh and tasty the had to have just harvested the vegetables. The herbal teas were perfect with the sandwich. They have fresh baked goods and a terrific brownie.

The chicken salad sandwiches here are very good .... they even toast the croissant - which just shows their attention to detail. However, the pasta salad was the best I've ever eaten. Not fancy, just delicious. And the iced coffee - heaven in a glass! Plenty strong, a choice of flavors (but not used to the point of taking over... More

This is a little of a place. It took a few minutes to get our sandwiches, but that's what happens when they are assembled on the spot! Besides, I was so entertained looking around at the various items for sale (jewelry, antiques, kick-knacks, and more) that I really didn't notice. Food was tasty, refills on coffee/tea available, and friendly staff.... More

This was a second good lunch find in Abilene, along with Dish. Eclectic surroundings and freshly made sandwiches were enjoyed by my wife and me. Swing by.

Onions on the grilled cheese was great! Shopped while we waited for our food which was nice. Small menu yet a good variety. The food tasted wonderful! Three women ordered three different things and all of us were satisfied!!

Having never been to Abilene before, we chose what looked to be a small, trendy appearing restaurant in the heart of downtown, which caters to the tourist trade. Upon entering, we found it to be very inviting, with small lights, a combination of antiques and art deco items. About eight 2-top and 4-top tables helped to create a very personable... More

Stopped here on our trip across Kansas on I-70...was worth the few minutes from the interstate to downtown. The original address u pulled up was outdated, it had moved a few blocks but so glad we found it. Probably the best chicken salad sandwich I've ever had. Took awhile to get our food but they were busy-again-worth the wait. Great... More

The staff was pleasant and welcoming. A limited but quality lunch menu - we ordered the grilled chicken salad, chicken salad sandwich and Tuscan chicken wrap. Tables are set amongst boutique items for sale. Shop while you wait for your order!
