Great service, attractive and polite staff, great location and picnic tables outside to enjoy it all. Fantastic menu. A locals favorite for many years, suggest you call ahead and have it ready when you arrive. Sandwiches, soup, salads and sweets. Suggest a sandwich, any one will do as they are all great. Prices here are on the high side, and... More

Based on previous reviews...you get what you pay for! Great local place to eat and professional service. Soups were excellent and the local beer and wine are limited but taste great!

This is a modern sandwich store that gets a lot of its stuff locally, and tries to make twists on staples. My wife had an excellent sandwich and brownie. My weirdo pulled BBQ sandwich missed the boat a bit. Nevertheless this place was hopping on a frozen February morning, indicating that few people mind the high pricepoint.

We were looking for a spot to have lunch that was quick but we didn't want fast food so we found this place and couldn't be happier food was fantastic and even went back the next day for lunch. Loved how you can have a beer or wine also.

Small sandwiches and for too much money! Everything in there is over priced. I had the tuna wrap with lettuce and tomato and it had very little tuna.

Delicious food and very cute! The Green Goddess dressing is SO good! My only complaint is that I wish they were a bit more aware of the devastating effects of single use plastics. The salad came in a very hard plastic container and unlike Panera Bread, ALL of the utensils are plastic and come in single use plastic packet sets... More

My husband and I went here for lunch as it had good reviews and was in walking distance from our hotel. The place is nice. The air conditioner was cranked up so it felt great to get out of the heat. There's also a gift shop inside the restaurant with nice food items and drinks. I had the Northender as... More
