We were looking for a breakfast place as we were passing through. Had to settle for lunch as we were to late. Very busy place. Wait was not bad, they have a good system in place for lunch rush. Sandwiches are good. Nice environment to sit and eat.

Had lunch and was pleasantly surprised. There was not a super large assortment of food to choose from, but there was enough. The sandwichs were well prepared and everything tasted fresh. 3 of us ate and the price was reasonable.
