Delicious and creative

We had lunch there several times during the month of August. Each time the food was delicious, we enjoyed the Angry Bird (hot), grilled cheese and a jazzed up ham and chess. You won't be sorry, reasonable prices! Also, the salads are generous and fresh

Sandwiches were all delicious. Cool and relaxing. Very small place with deli order type restaurant. Best potato salad! I was surprised that such a small simple place could be so pleasant.

Very small, quaint sandwich shop that served awesome food. Ordered the BBQ sandwich on ciabatta bread and it was great. Only about 10 tables in the whole joint, and the bathroom was in a very awkward spot, (right as you walk in the front door - had to maneuver between everybody in line when coming out) but the quality of...

Love this cute sandwich shop in Mateo. 10 tables overlook the water. Order at the front and your food is delivered to your table. I had the delicious Hawaiian Chicken Salad. Reuben and the Godfather were also terrific.

great deli on the waterfront, full of local. Had a really great Reuben sandwich and my wife loved her tomato basil soup. Very clean, nice people. Will eat there again.

Tucked away in a newer quiet shopping area near the water, this counter service lunch place has awesome sandwiches. I got the Godfather, great Italian style sandwich with fresh ciabatta bread, nice combination of cold cuts and a very tasty dressing. Everyone else in my party loved their sandwiches as well!
