This is a great little sandwich/soup pub like restaurant. There are two locations in Charlottesville, one next to UVA (The Corner)and the other on the Downtown Mall. We went to the Downtown Mall location. Love the basement atmosphere. Everyone working there was super nice, all looked in the 20's, dressed very hip and relaxed, as if they actually enjoyed working there. The menu is quite extensive for such a small joint. Lots of sandwiches, soups, wraps. My favorite by far is the peanut tofu soup. Definitely a keeper!

Great soup, funky college-town ambiance. I tried the peanut tofu soup, and it was better than delicious. Came with a nice, chewy roll. Alas, the service was disinterested at best at mid- to late-afternoon on a Saturday. At least half the tables were dirty with crumbs or leftover dishes. (In fairness, customers are supposed to clear their own tables; but the staff should have noticed – on a slow afternoon shift – that most tables needed busing.) Maybe I caught them on a bad day. The soup’s good enough that I’ll be back.

Word of mouth got us to this restaurant on a cold Feb afternoon. The ambience is casual. The place was jam packed with families, college students, young couples and the elderly.
The menu offerings were soups, salads, wraps and sandwiches.
We ordered the lamb curry soup,chicken tortilla soup, tomato soup, thai tofu veggie wrap, kickin' chicken sandwich and grilled cheese.
I was absolutely blown away by how delicious my veggie wrap was.The Lamb soup packed a good kick and was delicious. Hubby enjoyed his tortilla soup and chicken sandwich. The tomato soup was ok- nothing to write home about.
We'll be back to try out more from the menu.
A must try!

Great salad, soup, n quesadilla. The sign outside advertised fine wine. Decent reds to purchase but the whites available to have with your meal were less than spectacular.
