“Basic deli”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Got basic but tasty sandwiches here while waiting to catch the Rosslyn Metro. Good drink selection. We didn't try them, but they also had pastry.

“This place needs an intervention”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Service is slow or maybe I'm just there at the wrong time (11 am?) and the food looks dried up and curling in the deli counters. I also didn't know where I was supposed to pay and they make you feel stupid waiting to be told to go to the register. AARGH! The prices aren't that reasonable either. This place needs a makeover or something.

“The best source for gourmet cakes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Pricey but worth it. If you want to make a spash get a Tivoli cake (it's such shame that the restaurant closed a few years ago; it was great). Lunch offerings are good and more reasonably priced but the desserts are what you really go there for.

“As good as ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

It just keeps getting better. Try the scones although their pastries and made to order sandwiches are just as good.
