What's not to like, great variety, fresh produce and excellent bread, good service, and very clean facilities. For a fast food type facility is worth a visit.

Bought a sandwich Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017. Emailed the corporation to suggest they send a QC inspector; no response.

The San Juan Capistrano store puts lots of ingredients into the bread and the bread is fresh out of the oven every day. I had smoked ham on Rye and my wife had roast turkey avocado. Both excellent. The chicken wild rice soup is very... More

I will eat here again and again, as it's mostly healthful choices. The spices are a bit uninspired. Waiting for all non-GMO choices to arrive.

If you like a good meal at a moderate price this is a great place. I always like soup and sandwich. They always have something special and it's pretty much gonna taste delicious. Great pastries too.

Very good soups and salads as well as sandwiches. Nice variety. Also a very good beverage selection, including green and chai teas. Their pastry and baked goods are to die for!
