“Great lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I was confused initially by the computer ordering just inside the front door. But after looking at the menu board I bypassed the computer and ordered at the counter. My sandwich was incredible, and worth the price. The baked goods were too scrumptious looking to resist. It was busy at lunch and I would have liked go outside to eat on their patio, but it was raining :(

Looking for a desert to bring over to my friends home, and found out that they needed gluten free deserts, so we choose the chocolate flowerless cake which was divine

“Great Sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Turkey sandwich and hot pastrami were excellent. We went for lunch and it was very crowded, which is good and bad! Best sandwich I have had in a while.

“Good value for a decent breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011

Went here for breakfast three days running since they were the first place open (aside: why don't more downtown areas have 24 hour diners - who wants to wait until 6am?). While they have a very limited breakfast menu, just egg and _________ (fill in the blank) sandwiches, the coffee was god, not watered down, and the food was hot and tasty. Three of us ate each morning for less than $20. The last day I bought a pastry for the airplane ride home which was delicious.
I missed my home fries but it offered a friendly staff, reasonable prices and very tasty food, which is a combination I'll take any day.
