I love the Adirondack Salad, I add chicken personally, and the Maple Harvest Panini. I always order on days they have the Roasted Red Pepper Gouda, lovingly known as the "Double RPG" at the office. Never a let down, always healthy, local and unique food!

I live on the coast in NC, and have traveled in Maryland. The crab cakes here are FANTASTIC, and among the best I've ever had. The service is excellent, and we were on a time crunch, and easily met our schedule.
