Or light, fresh salads. Everyday, there is a featured quiche, an entree, and a soup. Interesting choice of side items - one of my favorites is the grit cakes with jalapeno. Other especially tasty items are Italian salad, chili (with meat or vegetarian), and turkey sandwich on soft French bread with cranberry mayo. Within walking distance of the university.

They serve very unique brunch/lunch menu items, such as their cucumber sandwiches with a hummus spread. It has a very laid back and nostalgic atmosphere. They aren't open for any other time except for lunch, but I would recommend it if you're in the mood for something different and casual.
