Great sandwiches

Falafel wrap and chicken bacon avocado sandwich were both great! The bacon was crispy and amazing, and the falafel was not over-crisp. Nice staff, too.

I always get the falafel and hummus wrap every time I come here. Hey, you can't get that everywhere! It's really good. I could eat half of one and be satisfied. The menu has other things I'd like to try, like the avocado & brie or gyro pita roll, so I need to visit Salem more often. Casual.

Consistently clean sandwiches, with a fairly high quality product. Friendly and interesting staff, and an excellent menu to select from. Even the prices are pretty reasonable, the only major drawback is that there is no parking ever. But that is something that one can contend with if you want a decent Sammy.

I always ususally get the same thing but I love the sandwich. The HS2 is beautifully crafted and well done. The best sandwich I have ever eaten.

Frozen yogurt is killer, like no other. Can mix in whatever you want. Generous portions. Great stop for the family.

Really tasty soup and bread. Wasn't hungry enough to get a sandwich on top of that but my friend lived hers. Supposedly has great ice cream as well.

I got a decent sandwich and a GREAT bowl of soup here. I believe I got the corn chowder, and an avocado BLT or something like that. My boyfriend got a different sandwich and his was amazing. Mine just kept falling apart and it was annoying. The food was good, the location is central, and the atmosphere was nice/trendy.

Note to self: If it's late at night and I want soup, just make it myself. Soup should not look like it's a cup of rice pudding. I thought I had received the wrong order. It appears that they put everything through some sort of press or blender so you're essentially getting a cup of mush.

Apparently, this place has switched over owners. The sandwiches, etc., now just seem to be ok (though maybe it was a fluke?), but the frozen yogurt is still great. You can pick your own mix-ins and toppings and they have a tofu version as well as a sugar-free version, I believe. (Side note: Delivery was very slow when I ordered... More
