Had lunch here today and the wrap and panini were very good. In addition to sandwiches and wraps, they offer delicious soups and deserts. The atmosphere is casual / rustic and pleasant. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice lunch with a little more to offer than the usual.

Sandwich: Rustic Italian, add turkey if you eat meat. Dessert: Carrot Cake is moist, not too sweet, heavenly. Always has vegetarian and gluten free on the regular... More

Wonderful sandwiches, salads and home made soups. The food is so clean and fresh and nutritious. Love the basil pesto salad dressing. Lots of gluten free options and amazing gluten free chocolate raspberry desserts. Good value for $$. Love this place.

Great lunches prepared with nutrition in mind. The owner/cook teaches classes. Local sourcing as much as she can. Really enjoy the food and the people!

My sister and I had lunch here yesterday. The sandwich and salad I had were very good and my sister said her soup was outstanding. Everything seemed to be made from fresh ingredients. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable. We were able to carry on a conversation even though the restaurant was quite busy. The pastries looked yummy but we... More
