This establishment has a down home, small town feel to it that makes you feel good just being there. However it is very popular and as a result can be very crowded (and a bit slow) if you just wanted to pop in for a quick bite. It is not that the service was poor- it just can get very... More

Delicious home-made soup, great sandwiches (try the Hot Oly). Helpful, fun server in a pleasant, speakeasy-style place.

Love the homemade everything. Bread and dessert made right there. Crowded for lunch but not a bad wait. Soups are really good too.

Went for lunch during a weekday. Place is bigger than it looks from the outside. Our server was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I got the Hot Oly with grilled beef, cheese and jalapeños. Funny enough while the sandwich was good it seemed to be missing something. Not sure what. Prices are reasonable for the food you get. Good place... More
