Nice lunch spot, don't let the line prevent your visiting.

Great lunch spot for soup and sandwiches. The line to get in makes it look like a no go for anyone on a schedule but they minimize wait time by having an order taker at the head of the line, you make your order and get an order number, take a seat, and a waiter/runner delivers your order and... read more

My personal favorites are cream of mushroom soup and chicken salad OR the veggie bagel (toasted). I worked downtown for many years and this is a favorite lunch spot. Prices are reasonable - not cheap, but reasonable. You may stand in line for a bit to place your order then an attendant will bring your order to you. Tips are... More

Well located next to Old State Cap for Lincoln visitors, but weird, uninviting place with weird ordering/payment system. Decent soup and salad, but weird sandwich menu (cream cheese on lunch sandwiches?), so you need to make your own combinations and then cross your fingers. They use cheap bread and ingredients; condiments given to you in packets for you to put... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday and we only had one person in line before us. We didn't know the system of ordering so that is why I didn't give this place a 5. The lady that took our order was rather short with us that we didn't know the system. The food was great, had a ruben and... More

We ate lunch here twice on our recent stay in Springfield, IL. The first time, I had a broccoli soup w/ a Rueben sandwich, and the next time I had a corned beef sandwich with a pimento cheese pasta salad. Both meals were very good.

The only reason this didn't get 5 stars is because I hate waiting in line to place an order, even though they do bring your food to the table. The food is excellent and the soups are something about which to rave! It's very noisy at lunch time, but that's because it's very popular.

Delicious chicken salad sandwich along with tomato basal soup for me :) My husband really enjoyed the corned beef. We had to wait; however, it was well worth it! Take-out was available.

We had hungry kids after a morning of sightseeing. We went in and ordered, the lady was very helpful with suggesting what they had most kids enjoyed. We are so glad we are here! Our son had the best PB & J ever! One of the best meals we had on our trip.

Very busy place, that's always a good sign. Home made soup and sandwiches were very well done and served pretty quick, we'd eat here again!
