Very Satisfactory Visit

We were a party of six, plus a baby. There was room by the table for the stroller, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food was good. Like Panera, there was soup, which was excellent, salad, or bread based burgers or sandwiches, with a good variety of fillings. Each choice has a combo... read more

You absolutely must try the Red Onion Chowder! Don't be fooled! The small cup is more than enough with the hard roll and you will be full for the entire afternoon!

Hit or miss. A local eatery. Limited options on the weekend. Went in on a Saturday and they had a very scaled back Saturday menu. Don't open if you are going to limit options. Only limited vegetarian options. Tried a few times and found it to be mediocre. I won't go back. Boring.

Quick summary: the menu is mostly sandwiches, soups, and salads, Very well-crafted. Reasonable prices for excellent quality. Sunny, airy room. My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The menu is mostly a range of hot and cold sandwiches, excellent homemade soups, and salads. There is usually a specialty item -- quiche on the day we went. There is also... More

Their ham chowder was delicious!!! My sandwich was good, fresh, and tasty ;) I enjoy walking down for lunch. The sandwich & soup combos cost under $10 And it's a great alternative to fast food

My girlfriend & I went there for lunch & it was delicious! Someone recommended the fresh chicken salad sandwich & it extremely good with a side of sun dried tomato pasta salad! We also found out that you can rent the space for parties.

Had to look around a bit for a menu and couldn't find a restroom easily. Overall the service was good and friendly and the food hit the spot. I had... More
