“Panini Heaven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I've had sandwiches catered from here and they were nothing to write about, in fact i ended up here from sheer hunger and a 45 minutes cheesy factory wait. But lo and behold the panini and delicious kettle chips and savory chicken noodle soup satisfied me and restored my faith in the corner bakery. Now if they could only work on diluting their lemonade from diabetic coma status to a chickfila reasonableness all will be great in their world.

“Always Ready with a Light Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Their menu of sandwiches, soups and salads are perfect for a healthy, light meal. The choices of paninis or sandwiches are perfect matches for the homemade soup specials they offer, depending on the day of the week. The overhead menu board is perfect for those who are shopping in the mall. Not a lot of pretension, just good food prepared well, at a very good price.

“Consistant quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

I have eaten here about 100 times. They have good soups, salads, and sandwiches. The service is friendly. For the price, it is a great deal. You can switch carrot sticks for chips if you want to make the meal healthier.
I'm not so impressed with the hot drink items (don't like the coffee at all, chai is so so). The desserts I find only so so.

“OK for a quick bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

Have been here a few times and it's been generally inconsistent. Counter staff don't always know what's on the menu and can't answer questions. Sometimes the coffee station is messy, or the coffee is not there. Pastries tend to be all looks and not so much in the taste department. Prices seem high for a get in line and ask for what you want place. That said, I have sometimes had a decent breakfast here and it's not a bad place when you are in a hurry and just want to get something basic to eat. Seating area could be larger and more comfortable.
