We stopped in for coffee and loved the selection of breakfast sandwiches, as well. Too bad we hadn't discovered this cute cafe earlier in our travels!

Poached eggs and toast for me which happened to be the best toast (multigrain) I've had in a long time, eggs perfectly poached. A friend had eggs benedict which she loved. Lots of coffee and fill ups. Will definitely call there again.

Loved the food hated the service. In this restaurant you have to order at the counter and wait on yourself. The girl behind the counter was so rude that we never went back.

Sandwiches were amazing! We had the grilled club and the cranberry turkey as well as a few kids sandwiches...they were all devoured! Bread was amazing! Took awhile to wait for our sandwiches and the parking is terrible, but besides that, a great eating experience!

Very good croissants and pastries. Also a breakfast sandwich on their famous English muffin. But the food they are most famous for are the Sandwiches on their fresh varieties of homemade bread. The pastrami on Rye...to die for.

Not to be missed, this popular spot is lively and comfortable and has the best soups/sandwiches/baked goods/coffee around. Had many lunches here over the years and never disappointed. Wish it could replicate in Seattle.

All of their breakfast items are very good. I particularly like the breakfast sandwiches (egg-a-nues).
