“Still Don't Want to Tell You About This Place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Reviewed March 29, 2013

Lunch was awesome! The staff were great and appeared to really care about the customers. We had a chicken salad sandwich with walnuts and cranberries on bread so fresh that it left us wanting more. We shared the sandwich and were both full so we didn't have a desert but they looked good. We'll be back before everyone "discovers" this place.

Went back 6/9/2013

See above. It was still the same - same sandwich and it was delicious!

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

We had a great experience. The food was great and the service was excellent. They treated us like family. Not fancy but well worth it after the Aquarium.

“Don't overlook this little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

While staying in a nearby condo, we stopped in to get some picnic goodies. We chose a container of chicken salad and one of tuna salad, then purchased some crackers. Wow! It was so fantastic we actually went back a few nights later to have sandwiches, this time tuna and egg salad. Both sandwiches were served on warm, toasted focaccia bread and were large enough for two meals. Honestly, these were some of the best concoctions I've had anywhere, including fancy restaurants. Well worth stopping by. Whoever is doing the cooking has a passion for getting things right. We should have eaten here more often! They have hot food, too.

“Great little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Part cafe, part grocery , this little place is both. A great place for a quick meal or a last minute grocery need. Friendly staff and good food.
