Lunch was quick and fantastic. We got the clam chowder and a basil pesto club sandwich -- both were great -- and finished off with a mint brownie. Great food.

A delightful find for a casual venue with really good food (the Mediterranean focaccia is to die for) at a very reasonable price, and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Obviously enjoyed by the locals. We'll be back!

Wow, stopped for lunch on our way to drop our freshman off at VT. Everything we ate was home made. The black bean salad that comes with the sandwiches is fabulous. And Mike's home made chicken noodle soup was just like I make. Take the extra 5 minutes from the highway to eat here.

One of my favorite places to eat in town. The home made bread and desserts are great. One of my favorite things on the menu are Greek salad and the great smokey sandwich on focaccia bread. Always great service and a great atmosphere.

Nice lunch food, lines are really long at lunch hour when students are in, that can be annoying, but overall they handle it well and the food is good

Found this little cafe by chance while driving through Lexington. Service and staff were friendly and very attentive. Sandwiches were great. Highly recommend this cafe and plan on having a Browne.

Apparently the dressing is a secret, but it is no secret that the salad is delicious! And that is just the start! Fresh, locally grown, and homemade! But don't be late! Not open for dinner. Enjoy!

Three of us went to this charming basement restaurant. My daughter, a vegetarian, enjoyed a veggie melt. My wife had a veg sandwich. I had a chicken salad melt. We were delighted with our lunches. The cozy basement atmosphere really added to the enjoyment. Business suits, college students and grandparents all enjoyed the place

Love the tuna melt and also the bean salad! I must drop by for my 'fix' every time I visit Lexington. Other specials are great too, including the baked goods.
