So me and my daughter both did the combo meal,half sandwich and bowl of soup since the cost between bowl and cup was minimal. I asked our waitress to add on a scoop of chicken salad to the salad. Service... More

We visited twice in a week. The chicken and wild rice soup was the best I've ever had. Then I tasted the cream of celery. I've bragged about it since. It was literally the best soup I've ever eaten (51 years). The half turkey/avocado sandwich was beyond huge, stacked with lean turkey and chunks of fresh avocado. The ham/pimento cheese... More

We stopped here on the way back from visiting an apple house. There were four of us and two had the tomato basil soup and two had the mushroom Brie soup. The soups were delicious as well as the sandwiches. One of us could not eat all of the Ruben as it was huge. Try the coconut cake as you... More

Chicken salad OK, tuna salad too blended, no texture. Tomato soup was good but they were out of the one I wanted, even though it was on the board. Dessert good.

My family and I frequent here often. The soup and sandwiches are always fantastic. The service lately has been poor. We waited 15 minutes before a server asked for our drink order. The wait staff seemed to be ignoring us. They were not friendly at all. Customer service, to me, is huge! If I feel like I'm a burden when... More

I had the turkey, bacon and avocado, Deli style sandwich on toast. It's only my opinion but I didn't like the way the turkey (thin sliced like you'd buy at a grocery) was balled up and a HUGE pile in the middle of my sandwich. I wanted to disassemble it and spread the turkey around the bread. It was cut... More

great staff, fast and fresh. Tomato basil soup is to die for, sandwiches have enough big but not too big. Didn't have to carry out but was full...full...full.
