This is a good place to grab a salad with soup or a sandwich for lunch or an early dinner. I gave this place a try during a stay at Maumee Bay Lodge. It was a 15-minute or so drive and was conveniently located among the stretch of commercial establishments on Navarre Ave. (Rt. 2). However, it was a little difficult to spot as it did not stand out. It was on the end of a small building with three or four storefronts and there was not much to call attention to it. It would be worthwhile to use a GPS. Otherwise, you will need to pay close attention to look for the small sign in front of the building. The exterior appearance was quite simple as was the interior. Having said that, however, there were plenty of places to sit. The type of fare and combination meals they serve seemed to be in the same vein as Panera or Zoup but with a much simpler, less-frills approach. The number of salad choices (about 15, I think) they offered was impressive. I chose the Betty salad which was a nice combination of greens. They also offered soups and sandwiches to allow for a large number of potential combinations. I chose the homemade chicken chili. There were also side items such as cookies, etc. Among these was homemade cornbread, which provided a nice complement to the meal. The salad came with a vinegarette that provided a very nice flavor. The soup, however, was an acquired taste. It was clearly homemade but had a sour overtone almost approaching the taste of Chinese hot and sour soup. It was not at all what I expected and I never quite made up my mind whether I liked it or not. I would probably not try it again. The service was friendly and efficient and the prices were quite reasonable. In all, I liked the concept of this establishment and thought it was a very good spot for a quick salad. I would, in fact, like to go again to sample another variety of greens. But I think I might try to combine it with a sandwich next time as the soup was a bit iffy.
