“Tasty Haddock Chowder”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

On a road trip to the Cape, my friend and I passed this and actually turned around to get a sandwich. I liked the sign they had out front about quality food, and it was right- all of their selections looked very good and what we bought (chicken avocado sandwich and bowl of haddock chowder) tasted great.

If you're going here, I would suggest calling in your order. The line was pretty chaotic. No one was clear where it started and there was quite a wait between orders being taken. It looked like a much faster process if you were just there to pick something up. We actually almost left because we stood at the counter waiting while employees chatted and ignored us. The sandwich (we picked up a pre-made one) looked so good though that we decided to wait, and it was worth it.

Prices are sky high for what you get though. If you're budget conscious then I think this is not the place for you. For a pre-made sandwich that was honestly nothing special (although it did taste great) it was almost $8. For a bowl of haddock chowder (again, tasty) that was basically the size of a cup at most places in my area it was over $6. Not a lot of food for what you pay.

I didn't buy any but the cupcakes looked amazing in the display case. They had pizzas and tons of interesting items listed, and they had a lot of sit down seating available.

“Great for those on the go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

From salads to sandwiches to desserts, there are plenty of selections especially if you're on the go. Heat it up here or at home.

“Tasty Pizza but....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I've stopped in a few times for ther pizza, Margarita Muchacho is tasty with a thin crunchy crust. The fries looked good very tempting.

Here comes the but....the first time I tried their cupcakes (shortly after they opened) OMG, moist and flavorful, the coconut madness mmmmm yum. However the last few times I got the cupcakes they were dry and tastless including last night, terrible should have ordered the fries because the cupcake ended up in the trash.

Service is good, and the restaurant clean. Stick with the pizza don't waste your money on the cupcakes.

“Ask for everything made to order and leave room for dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

Great list of sandwiches and salads here -- make sure to try the panninis. Everything is fresh and there are really interesting sandwich spreads and toppings and cheeses available. Ask them to make your salad from scratch as the ready made ones in the fridge look less appealing. There is an assortment of really tasty, freshly made baked goods especially some gigantic cupcakes. You won't want to skip dessert or coffee which is good here too.
