“Nice lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

We had a great lunch. My husband and teen girls each had a huge pizza-by-the-slice. My 13 year old son had a calzone the size of an entire pizza, and I had a delicious and healthy spinach salad. Something for everyone at a reasonable price, with a nice non-chain atmosphere. The sweet tea was great and the sub selection extensive. I'd go back!

“Cinnamon rolls, pecan rolls, and pizza, ohy my!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

HUGE cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls. The only caviat is get there early. After 10:00 all pastries are gone. Rolls are huge and can easily be shared by two people. Pasta servings are huge. Two people can easlly share one order. Been in business for many years. Try it, you'll like it.

“Best sandwiches in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

We eat here about every 2 weeks - love their sandwiches served on the toasted rolls - could have more meat on them but then I am a big carnivore. great taste and combinations. I want to try their pizza if I can ever get past the sandwiches - if it's like their sandwiches it will be the best on the island.

“Pizza is good but the sandwiches are better!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Ordered a pizza for delivery (the Chicago) and it was fine. Delivery was within the time given. Tastes in pizza are such a personal thing so it's hard to provide a rating that makes sense or that others would agree with and value. So, I'll just say that the pizza was average, but some may think it's really good. But the sandwiches and the cinnamon rolls are exceptional. Tried the Italian (beef) and thought it was top-notch. Thick cut beef and melted provolone with au jus to add to your liking. Not the thin cut style of Italian beef I've had all my life. The beef was very tender and very flavorful, bottom line, I loved it! My wife had the Old World Club and thought it was good but could have used more ingredients and a little less bread. Speaking of the bread, it's homemade french bread presumably baked at the restaurant. The cinnamon rolls ($2.99 each) are large and fresh, and we both loved them. They alternate each day between baking cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls. The second time we went they had the pecan rolls (no cinnamon that day). The cinnamon rolls win hands down!
