The food here is AMAZING! We've never been disappointed. The sandwiches are unique and so tasty. Try the Grilled Scallops sandwich. YUM! The owner is so sweet and friendly. The only downside is their limited hours.

The food was phenomenal. I had the meatloaf sandwich which was huge, and one of the best sandwiches I've ever eaten, and my new wife had... More

This is the kind of place one hopes to find on trips across the country: unique, reasonably priced, with great food and interesting decor, and with friendly staff. All sandwiches are served on wooden boards, and every one that I saw looked great. I tried the whitefish sandwich, and it was fantastic. My wife had a salad, and it was... More

Great food, personalized service from the owners, their Cuban Sandwich is a must! Coffee and deserts are also great. Best place visited in a long time.

She even gave my little toddler granddaughter a... More

The turnover in this small restaurant is unreal! I have been in this place on several occasions through out the years and they don't seem to be able to keep a staff. The lady at the register and the owner Chef put the help down in front of customers. I give up....not going back.

We stopped for lunch today. I had the scallop sandwich, my daughter had the pesto chicken and my husband had the ham and cheese. We split a brownie for dessert. The owner is gracious and kind. The food is exceptional. If I lived closer, I would be there weekly!
