Some work friends got me hooked on this place. My fave is the shrimp and artichoke bruschetta and the wedding cake. Their hot bread and dipping oil is amazing too. There may be a line, but it is always worth the wait.

Be prepared to wait in line. My husband hates to wait in line however I assured him it would be worth it and it was! The food is plentiful and excellent!

Crazy one hour wait but it's always worth it to me. Especially if you con somebody else into waiting in line for you and you show up just in time to be seated. (Thanks, honey).

This out of the way, unexpected location delivers an amazing unique dining experience. The restaurant is the store front of their bakery which supplies fresh baked bread to local establishments. Only open 11:00-2:30 and you need to arrive early. There is always a wait. Always people waiting at least 30 minutes before they open. The line moves quickly. The menu... More

Took my husband here for the first time. He really enjoyed his hot Italian sub. He said it was the best he ever had. We also received a free dessert since it took awhile to get his sandwich. The desserts are out of this world. He said he definitely wants to come back.
