Favorite lunch spot. Awesome handmade thin crust pizza with sauce on top of the cheese. It's single serve size. Also like the homemade dressing for the salads. Traditional Italian style restaurant. The decor is at least 50 years old but that adds to the charm.

If you have never gone to the Subway Cafe, you must order the pizza. It's very different from the average pizza shop pizza. Be sure to say HI to Scotty, the bartender. They also have a great salad, and be sure to order their homemade...More
