This place is always busy, and for good reason. The food is fresh and tasty, and always comes out the way I want it. They are great about customizing anything you would like on the menu, and their soups, salads, and sandwiches are always great. They are bakery items are wonderful too. My son loves their bagels, and I love... More

I've never stepped food in this place when it wasn't crazy busy. The food here is good, and it comes out quick. I don't go often but I've never been diaspore when I have gone.

Breads are delicious. Food fresh and soups are hot. Perfect for the LITE bite. Not for the hearty appetite. ....

Food good. We mostly get the soup and salad. Tables could sometimes be wiped clean a little more often. Kids, students some business people sit there for hours using their Wi-Fi. Ok to use it, that's why they have it. But not for hours. And they are not even eating.

My wife and I stopped after visiting a bank in the area. had been here once before. The positives are: it has an attractive ambiance, fast service. Have to say that the food is decent but not great. Turkey in the turkey sandwich was what you'd get prepacked at a supermarket, not deli fresh. Creamy tomato soup was thick but... More

We've been to this place many times. It is basically a soup, salad, sandwich place. Nothing fancy, they have some interesting looking bread and cakes in the front of the store..but, they are expensive and not special...It is self serve. Give your order, then go back to pick it up...Maybe good for lunch if you have no where else to... More

From the coffee to the sandwiches, baked goods and soups this place is always a solid choice. I always enjoy their breads and the french onion soup is always very good.

My husband and I had an assortment of dishes in the Rockville Centre, N.Y. branch (Nassau County) on several occasions and we found the food to be very POOR in both quality and preparation. We certainly would never return.
