I ordered their green salad with chicken. I added avocado and red onion. They gave a generous portion of avocado which I appreciated. It was so much food that it literally could have fed a couple of people.

While the sandwiches are good, freshly made. It is slow because all meats etc are cut after you order.

The breakfast burritos are delicious. We rode over on our bikes, parked in the patio, and thoroughly enjoyed our chorizo/egg/potato w/veggies burritos and coffee. Their sandwiches are excellent too – reasonable prices, friendly service, quality food! Highly recommend.
