Bell the cat is a good choice if your looking for a quick bit, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a "restaurant" Sandwich are good but consistency of flavor can be off, soups are also lacking some are great others are just yuck. The lobster bisque for example taste very much like imitation crab, was not a fan.... More

The interior of the restaraunt is a very strange setup, but functional and interesting. It's almost like a bunch of decor that doesn't go together, but it definitely makes the restaraunt eclectic. My mom and sister and I went in for lunch and I ordered the mozzarella foccaccia panini. It was pretty good, but not mind-blowing or anything. I also... More

This is a no frills place which is a good place for lunch. They offer a wide selection of sandwiches, several kinds of salads, good soups, yummy-looking desserts (we've never tried any) and a wide variety of drinks. Off the beaten track, it's a place where locals meet to eat

If you didn't know about Bell the Cat, you'd probably miss it altogether. What a pity that would be! It's a great place, the food (I can only speak for the sandwiches and cookies) is fresh and delicious. I love being handed a checkoff list and ordering exactly what I want on a sandwich!! (You don't have to do this,... More

Stopped in due to a local's recommendation. Great subs and scratch made cookies. Local bread and veggies plus Tevazza coffee. Great place for the family to eat.

Although in a little shopping strip, this is a very cute place with quality meals. Sort of like a deli and bakery and ice creamery. Plus there is occasional live entertainment, a family movie night, and such.

My husband and I eat here about once a week. We love it. There are several sandwich options, so we are never bored with it. The sandwiches are awesome. I always thought of this place as being pricey, but if you think about it, you're only paying a couple of extra dollars than you would for a Subway meal and... More
