I ate at this place almost every day during the biggest racquetball tournament of the year, the food was really good, and healthy for us, the restaurant was near the host hotel and the main club, it made it easier for athletes to get there, the device was great, and the speed of attention was perfect!

Upscale fast food. The sandwiches are very good. Pasta dishes I heard are made of frozen pasta but can not confirm. All salads are very good too. The breads are good only for a day. But I am a bread connoisseur. We have been there many times.

I dropped in for a quick cup of coffee after a morning business meeting nearby, it is down town. First we had to queue for about 5 mins before we ordered our two cups! Then they made a mistake in my companion's order and took the cup back. Mine did not arrive at the same time. Finally after a further... More

i paid $8.99 for 1/2 soup & 1/2 salad combo. The soup was almost $4 which is ridicoulsly high price for a cup of chicken noodle soup & the soup wasn't all that great. The salad was mostly lettuce with some slices of chicken.

The place is ideal for snacks especially if you want some muffins or bagels. You also get dinner combos with soup and salad. Tasty food with a good variety.

As a visiting tourist it was nice to see a familiar name. I ordered the soup in a bread bowl and it was great. Staff are all very friendly. The best part was the outdoor seating. It is in an enclosed patio area so you are not sitting on the sidewalk. I was able to find a newspaper inside and... More

Stopped here on a Friday during the busy lunch hour. The food was available quickly and was very good. This place is a well oiled machine. An outdoor seating area is a nice touch.
