Great healthy sandwiches. There were so many choices that it was hard to decide. this restaurant is one that you stand in line and order, then they bring you your food. They also have beer and wine. Be aware that you cannot bring wine outside and must consume it inside. This does limit seating options.

Yum! Good food, good service! A little expensive, but portion sizes were huge. It was a little noisy inside, but everyone was enjoying themselves.

Our family stopped here for lunch and had 4 different sandwiches; they were all very good! Service was efficient and staff were a pleasure to talk with. I'd stop here again.

So, we had a vegan, a celiac, and an average person eating in this restaurant. IT WAS GREAT! Huge salads with an option of gluten free bread for sandwiches or on the side. Portobello salad was a big win for the vegan. Great dressing too. Building your own salad and fast service is a big plus.

Awesome salad options and great outdoor seating area. Come after 1430 because it gets crowded. Ate here with my wife on an adventure and was not disappointed

We came as a group for brunch and was not disappointing. They have wonderful, generous salads that come out quickly. The sandwiches are nice.

Crowded. Order and food is delivered to you. Very busy. Yummy soft drinks. Ahi sandwich good, but bun a little stale. Salads very generous and tasty. Good place for good fast food.

Not only are the choices plenty, the desserts are terrific and the staff is excellent. I have stopped in just to pick up desserts to take to friends and I typically end up getting more than I intended because they are so good.
