Ham, brie, baguette, and the "special sauce"--a secret basil-y, cheesy, garlic-y accompaniment to your sandwich. Or you could just eat it with a spoon and lick it with your fingers :)

The food is great, fresh selection of fresh food, steak, chicken, shrimp etc. Price is reasonable. Have to try to food cooked on hot rocks/stones. They also have a great breakfast buffet. There are daily specials that are very reasonable.
