Popped in for a quick take out sandwich at lunchtime. The selection is amazing and takes a little time to take in. In the end I chose an egg and ham salad sandwich. It was amazing and HUGE, lots of creamy egg, really nice smoky...More

We tried the vegetarian lasagne (with delicious french bread), their mushroom soup (scrumptious with fantastic bread & butter), the chicken pot pie (oh my goodness, the flaky crust, the delicious gravy inside, the tender chicken...), the chocolate chip cookie, and an almond square. Everything was...More

Went there for lunch and we were amazed by the quantity and quality of the sandwiches we ordered (roast beef and tunafish). This has to be the best value menu for any restaurant in La Jolla. And as an added benefit, the food was delicious.

Have you tried to CALL them? They're a very small place, so I wouldn't expect a lot of flexibility, but if you order in advance they may be able to accommodate you.
