One of the best salads in the city, both the Wunderkind and the chopped salads are fabulous. Everthing is always fresh, with options for chx or tuna add on. Sandwiches and soup are above average as well.......Grilled cheese and tomato soup is a must once the cold weather hits!

It was too early for dinner, but we went inside, checked the menu and asked some people about the place. We came back about 1/2 hour later and were not disappointed. We both got clam chowder, which was delicious. I... More

Stumbled upon this place and i couldn't be happier. The staff was very friendly. I asked them to make me whatever and i got the southwest chicken wrap. It was absolutely amazing.

Recently ate here with my boss for a quick lunch. Chili was delicious and hearty with fresh bread. The soups were served almost immediately and are available in different portion sizes. Check their website to see which soups are available on each day. Nice selection of sandwiches and salads as well. The menu items range from more traditional to more... More

We were looking for a place for lunch after visiting New Bedford Whaling NHP. Prices were reasonable and the soups look yummy. It was busy for a mid-day Saturday. Service was fairly quick for made-to-order sandwiches. Would come here again if we were in the area.
