Honey and I were looking for soup and a sandwich for lunch. Don't get me wrong it was delicious. I got a half soup and sandwich combo. Hey got a roast beef sandwich. Do nothing outlandish. But $25 for soup and sandwich was a little pricey.

We ordered a few sandwiches and soups and were not impressed. The presentation of the food was wonderful, the staff was outstanding but the food was bland and lacked flavor. I was shocked because the menu looked amazing and contained a variety of food found no where else. Also, the Falafel was over spiced, which made it difficult to eat.... More

Visited with friends while in Salem. 3 of us had various sandwich soup combos & none of us were impressed. To start...We were all served Luke warm soups. Clam chowder was nothing like I've seen before & I decided not to eat it altogether. Tuna melt was best part of my meal. Other gals did not finish their soups or... More

We had soup and salad here which were delicious. Also had the frozen yogurts - also delicious. Prices were very reasonable. Not too many tables to sit at, but definitely worth a visit for a quick light lunch or dinner.

Our Witch Walk Tour Guide recommended this place to us last year. We went back again today. They have amazing vegan ice cream. We got the vanilla mixed with raspberries. It was so delicious!

I used to have lunch there a couple of times a week. The food was all made from scratch.... 1/2 sandwich special with soup is a great deal. Highly recommend.

.....If you gave these folks anything less than 5 circles/stars! This place is amazeballs. Food to accommodate any diet, seriously. FroYo for dinner? Don't worry they'll deliver it to you, too. Don't pass this amazing sandwich shop up. Quick and easy for an excellent lunch or dinner!

I went there during an excursion in Salem. Ordered a "Boston College" sandwich, found that horrible. The only motivation for which I would recommend this cafe is the following: the staff was really really nice, polite and patient! The hygiene of that place was OK, and that's enough.

My family and I took a small trip to Salem on our way to Plymouth. We went to the Witch Dungeon Museum and needed a bite to eat after. From a general tourist perspective, I would say this place is like a local Panera, but they make everything from scratch. We ordered 3 lunch pairs; 1/2 portobello mushroom panini with... More
