“Not All That Great For Lunch”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

This place is a hole in the wall located across the street from the Colleti-Magni park and features a breakfast-centric menu alongside a simple lunch offering of sub sandwiches. I went there for the latter and wasn't left blown away by the quality of the sandwich. While it was affordable, it was far from being the best one that is available in the area. The bread didn't feel or taste all that fresh - it was slightly dry - and the ingredients in it were okay but again, not all that great. Definitely not sliced to order. It just left like it was all put together in instants by someone who just simply doesn't really care to provide good food to patrons. Add to the fact that they are cash only and you're left with a place that's only worth going to while in search for breakfast in the area.

The decor is dated, the place almost feels crummy/divey. Not very impressed and the staff the counter wasn't all that pleasant or friendly. While I've never had breakfast there, I've heard good things from a few people but as far as lunch goes, no thanks.
