Amazing food healthy options

I go to once upon a time regularly and have tried most of the menu items, all are amazing. Even some of the things that I didn't think sounded good. You must try the meat loaf panini.

You need to stop in here for a great lunch. Very fresh ingredients, great soups and friendly people. There are several sandwiches and salads that should make pretty much anyone happy.

The food was great and came out quickly. Nice ambiance in an unexpected part of town. A Google map search for the address got me there easily. I'd go back.

Great find! We stopped for lunch after finding this place on trip advisor. Many great reviews. We had sandwiches, everything we had was very good. Tried the raspberry tart, awesome!

Every time I'm in town (I actually live in Berlin, Germany) I can't wait to enjoy a bowl of wonderful clam chowder (every Friday) or a great sandwich (or both ;-) )! Everything is fresh and healthy - a great alternative to your typical burger with fries (which I also like once in a while). And the staff is really... More

A friend and I had lunch there on an unusually warm early March day. We opted to sit outside on their front porch as it was in the 70s. Previous reviewers coined this establishment "quaint", and I agree that quaint is the perfect adjective to describe this eatery.

Even though this café is tucked away in the State Avenue Business District of Chehalis WA, it is a favorite of mine for lunch. Their variety of sandwiches and specials makes it a treat for a break. The rustic and old-fashioned décor is a refreshing change from the "restaurant norm". Parking can be somewhat limited, but is worth a visit.

Our favorite in our new hometown. Great sandwiches, and a very personable owner who serves and greets each guest. Fare is reasonable, fresh and innovative. We definitely look forward to our next lunch at Once Upon a Thyme!
