Hired them to cater my daughters wedding. They cancelled a week before, actually according to their dated letter, they planned to cancel before that, just didn't bother to tell me until Saturday afternoon leaving me with 5 days to find other catering. Letter said to contact them if I had questions. They have not returned a call or email since.

So many choices! Build your own combos, delicious sweet treats, and discounted "boxed" lunches from previous day to take back to work and heat up. Soups and sandwiches can't be beat for quick lunch.

Closed to public. They only do catering now. To bad good places cannot stay in business. I like the food but some dishes were too salty. Loved the squash, apple & bacon soup.

Father was buried in July and Ed presented an awesome buffet for all that attended. Many had to travel several hours after the service so we were glad to have such a great meal for them before they left. Top quality ingredients, wonderful soups and great service! Thanks again!

They are only open weird hours. Stopped by twice. Closed after 3. Closed Saturdays. Ugh. Sorry, Mr. Pickens - we heard the cafe was nice and we really tried!

Great location in downtown Mansfield for lunch! Large and attractively decorated dining area. I only wish that they were open for dinner or on weekends, as my work schedule does not give me much time to go out for lunch during the week! Quick counter service, Water cooler with cups for free by the condiments.

Wonderful deli and great place to stop for lunch. The food was excellent and homemade. Lots of tables both inside and out. Not too expensive, and very nice staff.
