Good sandwiches, soups, and salads

Don't expect anything fancy but the food is good. Love the chipotle mayo on some of the sandwiches and their balsamic vinaigrette, their house dressing is excellent.

The food is wonderful and it's refreshing having a salad as a side instead of fries. The people who work here are so friendly and helpful, always offering their favorites to help in deciding. Also, the owners are really nice, down to earth people. I will for sure keep coming back.

This place has delicious food - soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts. Indoor or outdoor dining. You can seldom walk right up to the counter to order. I usually end up as #3 or 4 in line. Since I am eating Gluten-free now it is harder to find something on the menu that I can eat but I can usually special... More

I frequent this sandwich, soup and salad restaurant. It's very casual with not much space inside, but on a nice Ventura day I love to eat on the patio (if there's room). Arrive early because there's usually a line, but it goes quickly. The staff is friendly but busy. The sandwiches are served on a very unique type of flat... More

My group was meeting at another venue in Ventura and offered the menu from this place to select from. WHAT A GREAT SURPRISE! Our meals were picked-up and brought to us at our conference site. The Kale & Quinoa salad was exceptional. All the ingredients were prepared appropriately, especially the kale which made the presentation very appealing. Nicely done! I... More

The pastrami is awesome. Urban throws in some salad to make it healthy. Great portions and service at a good price. Always good food! We're there once a week.

Today I tried the vegetarian grilled Tuscan sandwich which came with a salad. It was so good that my husband had to have a few bites! His Cilantro Chicken salad with cilantro dressing was huge and extremely tasty! We come here often and have never had a bad meal! They are great with take out, I all in and no... More

Menu is a good variety of sandwiches served on soft warm focaccia, soups and salads. Prices are very reasonable, about $8 for sandwich with either soup or salad. Packed the day we were there but the line moved quickly and food served promptly. Our order taker was VERY personable and accommodating.

My husband dragged me there the first time but I make him go any chance I get. I love every sandwich I've ever tried there!!! I love the little side salad that comes with the sandwiches. I now have two little kids and they eat there too.

The sandwiches are delicious and around $8, and they include a small side salad. The salads are also delicious with my favorite being the Chicken cilantro with the chipotle ranch dressing. If you go during lunch, make sure you go early as you will not find parking. People even have to park in the Kohls parking lot to go to... More
