“Food ok; but not a good place to gather”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

I was trying to find alternative places to have breakfast gathering for a party of 6-8 on weekdays, between 9-11am. I came here to explore on a Thurs morning, with a friend.
On the food. The Ham, mushroom, egg and cheese sandwich was good.
After staying for more than 1.5 hours, a staff came to ask a very lame question (if I want more lettuce on my sandwich. I mean, I finished eating mine....), then he returned to the back of the counter. There were only 2 occupied tables, mine and another one with 2 customers. I sensed that he was a little concerned if I would still be around when the lunch crowd comes in as it was nearing 11am.
So, I got my answer, we left. 2 stars for the good sandwich.

“A Seriously Good Sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2011

Top quality bread, top quality meats - that's really all it takes to make a great sandwich and this place has it down pat. The meat is so good I always order the smaller sandwich but get double meat for $1.50 extra (worth every penny). That's all you're going to need for lunch.
