Lunch break

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.

Stopped here for breakfast on a weekday business trip. It's clearly frequented by the businesses in the building and nearby which makes it a little confusing for someone brand new. 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

An ideal location to meet for breakfast or lunch. Food is always good. We arrived just in time for breakfast. The three-egg omelet is huge! Very delicious.

My husband and I stopped by this place twice for quick lunch and we were delighted both times. There Red Onion Soup and vegetarian soup were amazingly tasty. We will come back if we visit Racine again.

I have been here for breakfasts and lunches and must say I prefer their lunches. A few notes on the breakfast items: every time I order the quiches they are dried out so I have given up on that for good. I have had one of the morning "specials" which happened to be a Door County Cherry Cheese Stuffed French... More

This downtown spot is great for a quick bite. Their forte is soup, but all of their offerings are good and the prices very fair.

Recently visited for 3 to go orders. Service is not fast. Waited 30 minutes for 3 sanwiches. Upon leaving, I said, the soup is in here, right? I was then told you have to get it yourself. Someone might have explained that when I placed the order. Turkey and tuna sandwiches were good, but not outstanding. Grilled cheese was bland,... More
