“Good food, good location, good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The options here are sandwiches and salads. 3 of the 4 of us had sandwiches that did not disappoint. The onion rings were good too. The one salad I saw at our table looked fresh and decently sized as well.

There were seating options to please all; inside, inside not in the main thoroughfare, and outside for those beautiful Palo Alto days, or days when you want good food and your dog is accompanying you.

“Good fresh salad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Choose your own toppings - tons of fresh vegetables, nuts, fruits, etc. to go on your salad, plus either steak or portabello mushroom or something else (chicken? never had it but the first two are excellent). Lots of side dishes if anyone still has any room after the huge salads! Even a side salad is plenty.

“Great sandwichs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Love the food here. Salads are great, but i like the sandwich better. The sandwiches are hot and they make it on demand.

Give it a go.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

I had a steak sandwich and did not like it so much. Meat was a little chewy. And the price was quite high for a sandwich - over $9 I think. People I was with had salads and they liked them a lot. The atmosphere of the place is not great, crowded tables and not a very good service.

“Great Salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Fresh salads with great choice of the ingredients, nice friendly environment, many Stanford students are eating there. Located in the heart of busy University Avenue. Nice place to be
