We had a quick lunch here. Sandwiches were the obvious choice for that. However, they are not noted as hot or cold. My turkey sandwich was cold and dry. Other than the meat, there was only a little - perhaps out of a bottle - mustard. It was really nothing special. I was surprised that it ranked fairly hight for... More

Stopped by today to give them a try, and it was wonderful. The inside is immaculately clean, the wait staff friendly - and funny, and most important of all, their sandwiches are awesome. We will definitely be back.

Super cute place. Small, with only a handful of tables inside. Great service. Good food at great prices. Had the breakfast sandwich which was filling and was less than $7.

The interior of the restaurant is nothing to look at and the AC is so so. However, they have a courtyard with tables and umbrellas that is dog friendly. But the most notable feature of the restaurant is the great food! I had the chicken tarragon salad and it was fantastic! The restaurant is also reasonably priced. I will definitely... More

Whenever I find that I have a day off from work in the middle of the week, one of my favorite treats is to drive down to Occoquan, browse in the cute shops, and have lunch at this cafe. The sandwiches are good, and the service is great.

If you're looking for a nice little spot to stop and have an artisan sandwich, this is the spot. Great food, great service!

A nice cosy cafe with good food and helpful, friendly staff - just what you need on a miserable wet day. Our waitress noticed we had left out two dogs tethered outside and immediately took them a bowl of water without being asked. It's so nice when businesses cater for those of us who take our doggies out daily, whatever... More

I've had 4 of the sandwiches on the menu, I was lucky enough to grab the last lobster sandwich of the day last year. I hope they bring them back. The seating area outside is nice and the food is always fresh and tasty. Try the Italian soda's they offer which are pretty good.

We noticed this adorable little cafe tucked back a ways. It was closed that day so when we returned we wanted to try it. We are so glad we did return. It is so cute inside, everyone was friendly and the food was really good. A definite place to return to again and again.

My wife and I go here fairly often for lunch. The food is very good and the service is great. It is a small restaurant - only 7 or 8 tables inside and several tables outside. Hard sometime to get a table around 1200 to 1300, better to go early or later. Parking can be a little problematic since they... More
