Best place in Sarasota for a sandwich or soup. It’s usually always busy so if your in a hurry you may be disappointed but I don’t mind waiting because there sandwiches are that good. Service is usually on point too. I always recommend this place.

My husband and I have been going here for lunch every winter for years. The menu is extensive and the food is superior. The soups are all homemade, the salads and sandwiches are large and delicious and the homemade gelato is irresistible.

Been meaning to try this for a long time, finally went there after tennis the other day for lunch. Everyone had something different, everyone enjoyed it, and 3 out of 4 couldn't finish and took food home. Deservedly popular and unassuming spot.
