Fun place for lunch on 30A in the middle of Seaside. The array of sandwich offerings - wow! My husband had the Meatloaf Melt and I had the Smoking Turkey. Both were very large, very messy, and very delicious! Definitely a "must do" for Seaside.

I had the smokin turkey melt. It was great. The bacon and avocado were fresh and the sauce on it made it even better. The bread was perfect and didn't get soggy. This is a must if you are heading into Seaside.

Second time eating here, but now that it’s cool enough for soup, oh my! Nothing better than a plain ol grilled cheese and some homemade tomato soup. I generally don’t like the stuff, but this was great. Their Cuban sandwich is legit too.
