“delicious quick snack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Very tasty sandwich made with fresh ingredients and plenty of flavor. Was the perfect place for a quick sandwich while touring the Pentagon City shopping area.

“Good for breakfast”

The orange juice and baked goods are always fresh and tasty. Quick and easy, always consistent. Coffee is just OK.

“Great spot for breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This is a great, moderately-priced spot for breakfast and lunch as evidenced by the large numbers of locals who stop here. It is easily accessible via the interior tunnels and walkways from the Crystal City hotels and is a great option to hotel breakfasts. It is a bit buried within its shopping complex so may not be immediately noticeable. The menu follows the typical bakery and sandwich fare but is fresh and higher quality than the typical chains and other places nearby. The operation is largely self-serve so you can be in and out in a jiffy. Calories are posted on everything and healthy choices (and not so) abound. Stop by in the evening between 6 and 7 pm (closing is at 7:00 pm) and you will often find the remaining bakery treats at half price. Service is outstanding.
