very expensive for portion size

Stopped for breakfast at 10 am and they didn't really have any breakfast food. However, they did have quiche. Ordered a "meal plate" it was a very small slice of Quiche and 4 pieces of cut up fruit and a croissant. Would have been ok but they charged me $9.89 for it. The quiche was very tasty but... read more

This is a quick lunch stop with good, healthy ready-made salads. Sandwiches and quiche are also available for lunch.

Visited this café today. Was very surprised to find the food and service so bad. All new help so I guess it has changed hands. No only was the food and service bad the place was not very clean. The trash area behind the check was very dirty. I will never get there again.

Great Tarragon Chicken Salad and very good homemade baked goods. Very casual setting - nothing fancy. Very good take-out business.

I work for a local school district and have used In A Pinch many times for lunch delivery, but today was my last! They can never get the order accurate, they're never on time, and don't include the chips or paper goods after explicitly asking them to ensure the order is accurate and on time. Today, they delivered 45 mins.... More

Really tasty sandwiches and great desserts. Lots to choose from, friendly people. Very tight parking, but once you get in, worth it. Breads are bakery quality and varied. Good place to grab lunch for your office.

OK: I work in the building and it is the easiest thing to do. That said, the soups are superb. The sandwitches are great. The staff is super friendly and nice. The fresh cookies are delicious (and expensive). They keep the place clean and nice.

breads are very good, service is quick, desserts entirely too tasty. They will deliver to local addresses. Do not hesitate to ask them to hold the onions, or whatever, for your sandwich.

Difficult parking and busy as it is near a highschool. The sandwiches and soups are well worth the stop, We favor the daily specials as a place to start our considerations.

Arrive before 11:45 if you want to eat in. Outstanding sandwiches, fresh and the bread is excellent. Lots of state workers here, busy, noisy in a good kind of way.
