Sandwiches are meat-laden, salads interesting, good breads, sweet desserts. Soups are the weak link--that are rather, well, clinical. Best place for lunch in downtown Fargo, in my opinion. Comfortable surroundings.

Shari runs a first rate restaurant with good, fresh food, awesome soups and sandwiches, and the hot entree's are scrumptious as well. However, none of them can be outdone by the desserts... The decor is quaint, and the service excellent, contrary to the one post here. I also use her repeatedly for catering, which can be delivered in the Fargo Moorhead area, and she does and excellent job on every occasion. Try the Nutty Chicken and any of the soups are great. My favorite dessert is anything she is serving that day. The trouble is deciding which one to have. Better than X cake, German Chocolate, Coconut....Lemon... Rhubarb...Hmmm

Located just off Broadway this is a great place for lunch. Has soup or sandwiches and the best deserts in Fargo. You food is put on a disposable plate on a tray which is not for everyone but it works just fine for me.

Nice place to grab a bite downtown Fargo, recommended by a clerk at a nearby store. Everyone queues up to order a limited selection of sandwiches, salads, and soups, and although the portions are on the small side, the bread is homemade and excellent. Best of all--the "church basement desserts", as the clerk put it. Yum. Rhubarb pie!
