“Fun environment and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I've been there twice now and have been happy both times. The staff is very friendly and the food is pretty good. The exploded potato side is a must have. I've tried the Lombard and the Santa Fe and both were very tasty and generous portions. I'll be going back again. The only down side is they close at 7 PM Mon - Thur so I can only go on weekends.

“It's all about chowing down--Get a great sandwich or salad (but don't expect a bargain)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I agree this place does not have any atmosphere. It does have a friendly and efficient staff that delivers sandwiches just packed with fresh ingredients and salads with large portions of what tops the lettuce. The bread is a slightly chewy French roll that holds up well to ingredients. The choices are creative. But at about $8 a sandwich or $7.50-8.50 a salad, you're not getting a cheap meal. Yeh, it's worth it.

“Very Good Sandwiches, No Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Series of tables within a warehouse setting. Order at the counter and take to a table. Late Saturday afternoon lunch. Good counter service and excellent sandwiches. Party of two. We had the hanger steak sandwich and the vegeterian sandwich. Steak sandwich was good and hefty and the veg may have been the best ever. Food trumps lack of atmosphere.

“Worth Seeking Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

When here yesterday after going to Chartruese Barn sale which is about 2 miles away. This place was amazing. The staff so helpful and the food fresh and fun! The staff was beyond helpful giving us samples to anything we wanted and friendly. So many choices to eat I have to go back. The menu was very large and they staff behind the counter helped you through it. I will go back and try new things- loved the exploded potatoes and the chicken salad- yum:) Next door there is a fabulous wine and Beer shop for great prices- only $1 over cost. Don't let this place fool you being in an office park out of the way- it was a catering company that has expanded to lunch and dinner /open to the public. Can't wait to come again!
