Picnic provides fresh selections for a meal you can travel with. Nice selection of meats and condiments. Fresh breads and sides as well as great cookies and fresh fruit. Staff is friendly and anxious to please and parking is ample. Overall a nice selection for a travel lunch but nothing special.

This place has great sandwiches and great bakery(plus much more). MUST TRY the pimento cheese and lemon bars. Joe, the pastry chef, owners and staff are wonderful!

Owned by the same folks that own The Raven...just at the other end of the shopping center. Everything, including the bread, is made fresh daily and is a true delight for a quick and enjoyable lunch.

Sandwiches are alright, but they try to get too fancy and the sauces taste strange.
