This is quite an unusual experience. The café is within the Episcopal Church. Very, very pleasant people run this operation. You might want to consider this a "grab and go" restaurant.

We work close to St Johns and oftentimes walk over to pick up lunch and bring back to the office. I had one of the best panninis recently and friends had the best quiche they said they'd ever had. So nice to have something besides fast food !!

Their special two weeks ago was Tomato Pie and Lima Bean Salad. This sounds weird but the two just go together. The Lima Bean salad is somewhat like potato salad with lima beans.

This is a part of St. John's Church and it is a great lunch place. Fran has the best soups and sandwiches. Her weekly specials are the best. She goes the extra with herbed mayonnaise and mustard.

This is where all the locals go to eat lunch during the week. The prices are amazing (absolutely cannot be beat), the staff is friendly, and the food is amazing. The menu rotates weekly, and there are always specials (including a panini of the week). A must-try for everyone!

This is a great local lunch spot downtown, a secret gem. The food is fresh and affordable. There is a rotating weekly menu, with diverse choices, and they always have vegetarian options. Their Crab Bisque is the Best in Town, (it's so good we have an alert-list at office for when it comes up on the menu.)

Love this lunch place...and the volunteers who wait on you are friendly and you can get a good homemade lunch for under $5.
