This place is close to where I work (via car) and my coworkers and I have been here a couple of times. Food has always been fresh. I really like the bread they use for their sandwiches. Clean, friendly. Cool place to go if you want something fast & fresh to eat.

Hands down some of the best pizza Philadelphia has to offer. Fresh quality ingredients, reasonably priced, and accommodates to all my gluten-free/vegan friends? I'M SOLD. If you aren't giving this place a try you're really missing out.

The food here is so unbelievably scrumptious! My wife and I cant seem to get enough! The atmosphere is cozy, especially the upstairs and the staff is very friendly. This could become a regular for us

Cheese and sauce were good, though the 9 year old objected to the actual chunks of tomato in the sauce. Not "chain" pizza. Good. Definitely not the best in Philly,... More

The salad was not bad untilI found hair in my salad. So gross! This is definitely something that should not happen and could be avoided.

Had the buffet with six of the family for lunch. Great selection and greater price. We will go there again when in the area.
