Had the mushroom brie soup and the tuna melt. Both had a lot of potential, but both dishes could have used more flavor. Just a squeeze of lime juice and a little salt & pepper would have helped the tuna a bunch!

I come here every few months with my family. I love the Brie and Portobello sandwich, the clam chowder is authentic and fresh. Just the right amount of food. It's filling without being wasteful.

Great place to grab a large bowl of hearty, delicious soup. Just a counter to place your order and an outside deck with a few tables. Very casual.

A friend introduced me to this place the other day and it was a real treat. The place is small with tables outside, in front and along the side of the building. It is located on busy El Cajon Blvd. However, the food is delicious and the servcie is friendly. I had the mushroom and brie soup with a wedge... More
