Great baked good, prepared, sandwiches and salads as well as hot entrees. Several small tables to eat-in and Director Park across the street to savor your delicacies.

“Maybe when pigs fly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

Unacceptably bad food, even for a casual establishment. Stopped in for a quick breakfast and we really regretted it. We should have just turned around and left because the place didn't seem particularly clean. I had oatmeal which was not even warm - it would have been ok if it had been warm. Husband had ham scrambled eggs which were dry and flavorless and barely warm and a bagel which was ok. The coffee was below average as well. The tables, if you plan to eat in, were dirty.

“Closing Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

After a long exhausting day the concierge at our hotel told us there was a deli 3 blocks away. Sounded great. We arrived to find them packing up the food to close. The selection was not large, but the remaining hot foods were on sale. We got a pulled pork to go with local sodas and some other foods I don't remember. Even if the food had been full price it would have been a good value, it tasted good and the service was great. We returned for breakfast the next day on our way out of town. There was a large selection of quick foods that made it a perfect choice. I loved the oatmeal. It isn't fast food priced, but the healthy and more interesting choices suited my tastes well.

“Good Food and prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

I love a place you can get reasonable priced good food, made from scratch and have a beer while you wait. Had the pulled pork sandwich, it was pretty large and tasty, not amazing pulled pork but pretty good. The menu is not large but adequate with a good selection. Some seating, (very few) available inside while there is a large outdoor eating area.

“Disappointing salad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This is a take out place with a good selection. There is a small hot table. The pre-made sandwiches, and macaroni and cheese with bacon were good. The chop salad had a lot of lettuce with some of it being brownish. Service was friendly
