Staff quickly greeted us on our first visit to the place and provided some great recommendations. We decided on a couple of basics toasted just right. Looking forward to coming back for "the experience"!

We stop here for lunch probably once a week. The manager knows us, and always makes us feel welcome. Subs are warm. Soup is good. Sign up for the email and get lots of freebies.
