“Fab. Cholesterol without guilt”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

This is a real American restaurant. Yes, they do exist. It is a place to hide away from politically-correct people who tell you to eat healthily. The burger is juicy and delicious, a carnivorous pleasure that satisfies animal instincts. The fries are great too, and you'll leave so full you won't think about the clogged up arteries!

You can also do your laundry at this place if you want. But fine to simply hover into the cafe and order incredibly delicious food that may be bad for your body but good for your soul.

“Great food - in a laundromat?!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

Don't let the fact that this is a laundromat turn you off! It only adds to the atmosphere! Live singer/guitar player wasn't great but I liked the idea. Service was pretty slow, but my 3-cheese grilled cheese was awesome. Cheddar, jack and bleu cheese on focaccia (get it with bacon!) My side salad was even good. Various leafy greens in a light, tasty vinaigrette. Perfect little bite after having beer at the City Beer Store, they have beer on tap here too!

“A SOMA ICON”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

No trip to SOMA is complete without a sandwich at this quirky place. You don't even need to bring your clothes to wash, but you can.
