We had read about this place and passed while walking around the neighborhood. We got take out so we could eat later. Some of the best sandwiches and wraps we ever had. Fresh food which tasty ingredients. Food was well wrapped, even including pickles. Both were about $10 each, and a real bargain for the size and quality of the... More

This place is amazing. Great beer selection. Awesome signature drinks. Fantastic customer service. It is such a wonderful bar you forget about the amazing food. The polenta wings are such fun. The chicken finger sub is the best in the city. Their signature tomato soup is so delicious and both light and filling at the same time. I eat there... More

We stopped by for a drink mid week. Bartender quickly served us but after that no contact. Other staff arrived and totally did not look our way. Given we are foreigners easily given away by our accents we would have loved a chat with the locals. Not to be.

We have stopped here 5-6 times but the not to come is during the Allentown Art Festival. I doorman extorts $5 per person to enter. The menu is scaled back to salads and wraps. I had the pseudo-Gyro which would have been much better if made traditionally. Bathrooms are CLEAN. Women seem to use the men's room freely. Don't piddle... More

We had a lovely family evening catching up with exrended family. The service was friendly and accommodating. They were fine with us sitting in our window seat for hours. And others leaving the restaurant were raving about the food. Perhaps we made poor choices. We started with a daily special soup - lemon artichoke. It was so overpowering lemon juicy... More

Lovely, quiet little place that offers unique sandwiches and salads in Allentown. Not easy to find parking because of location, so we would usually walk there from the office.

We were planning a picnic nearby, and one member of our group offered to pick up lunch. We all reviewed the menu online and made our choices. My eggplant and artichoke on Costanza roll was wonderful with lots of feta cheese. If I get back there, I would try the Burgundy Turkey or maybe the Reuben. There were raves all... More

We were starving from walking all day and although we weren't sure at first whether we wanted to stop decided to enjoy a meal with their outdoor café style seating. The prices were reasonable. I got the house salad and my friend a roast beef sandwich. We both enjoyed it very much. Probably one of the best salads I have... More
