Shrimp poor boy and the pot roast sandwich are two of my favorites though you can not go wrong with any choice. Every one of our guests that I've ever taken there wants to go back. The menu is large and everything is homemade including their fabulous desserts!

This place blows Panera out of the water!!! The unique sandwiches and panini s makes this place special. Very small, but quaint. Best parking is in the rear, hard to find a spot on he street sometimes. This place is a gem...you must try it. We will be back!!

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on route to Chicago. The menu is extensive and the gluten free bread is delicious! Friendly and accommodating service for those with dietary needs. The salad that comes with the sandwiches is also a highlight. Great spot!

Broad selection of sandwiches which are tasty but very expensive for what you receive. Limited to no parking. Owner is extremely rude and obnoxious.

This place is a hidden gem with incredible service and food. We had a party of 15 people and they were able to accommodate in a very timely manner. Loved the freshness of the food!! The owner is a very generous lady!! Loved her! I'm gluten free and they also have GF bread and desserts.
