I live two blocks away and have come for years. Generally a great bet, especially in terms of value. Recent issue, though, was ordering soup, being late getting there (not my fault), and discovering I was sold the chicken-based soup that had been left sitting...More

Interesting and tasty soups and sandwiches at a reasonable price. If I spent more time in downtown New Bedford, I'd be there all the time.
