This is mainly a sandwich shop but with some very good bakery items. The prices are a bit to high for what you get, but it is a cozy place and they do have an early evening menu for take-out heartier fare.

One of the best deli experiences I have ever had. Each time I have been here the food is amazing. Fast with fresh ingredients and very friendly and efficient staff. You also have to try their soups and desserts! YUMMY!

We prefer to find something local when we're traveling and this was recommended by the lady at the museum we visited. The food was delicious. Lots of variety in beverages offered. Seating was adequate and comfortable. Six of us had a lovely little lunch for just under $50.

The sandwiches and sides are very good here, but my favorite is the desserts. Not a fancy place at all or very fast, but good food.

My husband said this is a great deli, so I said I would like to try it. He had the daily double sandwich & enjoyed it and I tried their reuben sandwich and was NOT impressed. As I am a woman in my 60's I was not full when I finished the sandwich which is unusual as I usually can... More

Not where one would usually think to go for a Friday nite fish fry, but it's excellent! And you can order online and specify when you'll be there to pick it up. Fantastic sandwiches and a great staff. Best St. Pat's Day corned been dinners & sandwiches I've ever had. Eating area not big on atmosphere but never disappointed in... More

A fun deli with fast counter service and excellent food. Never have had a bad meal. Most recently went with my husband. We each ordered reuben sandwiches that came with a side and a pickle. They were super delicious and so large that we easily could have split one between the two of us. Hand sliced tender corned beef prepared... More
