Their chunky chicken salad sandwich with walnuts and dried cherries is a wonderful surprise for this small eatery. Large portions and served on a variety of special toasted breads.

The food was good, once we got it. We ordered breakfast, and it took 40 minutes to get our food. Kids portions are fine for a 3 year old. My kids woofed their breakfast down($5) and are still hungry. They were out of the drunk...More
