The atmosphere is very old school deli which is nice and the food was good. I will say that they need to step up their sandwich game a bit. The ratio of meet to fixings and cheese was definitely off.

We enjoyed lunch here each day of our conference. They offer a wide range of different deli sandwiches, and I highly recommend the kielbasa sandwich. Very good, with potato salad. Seating is very limited, so be prepared to get your food to go.
