We had the soup of the day (chicken rice, very tasty) and half sandwiches, with a scoop of their potato salad. We enjoyed the meal and had good service. Note they don't take credit cards but do take debit cards.

Good place to go for fresh bread. You can sit outside when the weather is warm. Good service and quite reasonable prices. Like to go in to the bakery just to smell the wonderful fresh bread.
