Eclectic and neat is a great way to describe this deli. This resembles an old country store that offers excellent food and good service. The staff is incredibly friendly with the meal being served quickly.

Just had a great sandwich called "Pilgrim's Progress." One of the best sandwich places I have been 70!

We were looking more for a coffee and snack but wasn't available, snacks that is. But the staff was very helpful and offered us alternatives so we had coffee and some very nice toast. If it was lunchtime we would have stopped again. Good stop.
