Don’t let the size fool you. This little gem in the heart of Riverside serves up a huge portion of hospitality and a darn good sandwich. Nice homemade sides and soups are also available.

We went here for lunch and enjoyed the food. The wait staff were very friendly and the food was good. The prices are reasonable. There's a nice outdoor eating area. There is a good selection of breads, meats and other sandwich fixings.
