Just had lunch to go here. The menu was large with great fresh ingredients. They were accommodating to make wraps into salads and any other substitutions. Nice, friendly customer service.

Best thing about this sandwich shop is the exceptional bread they use. I usually get the turkey on baguette with arugula, Brie and apricot jam. Simply amazing. It's served on a warm crusty baguette. Love it. They also sell loaves of sliced wheat bread from...More
