Reviewed September 17, 2012

Looking for a desert to bring over to my friends home, and found out that they needed gluten free deserts, so we choose the chocolate flowerless cake which was divine

“Great Sandwiches”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Turkey sandwich and hot pastrami were excellent. We went for lunch and it was very crowded, which is good and bad! Best sandwich I have had in a while.

“Good value for a decent breakfast”
Reviewed December 15, 2011

Went here for breakfast three days running since they were the first place open (aside: why don't more downtown areas have 24 hour diners - who wants to wait until 6am?). While they have a very limited breakfast menu, just egg and _________ (fill in the blank) sandwiches, the coffee was god, not watered down, and the food was hot and tasty. Three of us ate each morning for less than $20. The last day I bought a pastry for the airplane ride home which was delicious.
I missed my home fries but it offered a friendly staff, reasonable prices and very tasty food, which is a combination I'll take any day.
