Just recently lunched at this spot and enjoyed it greatly. My lunch companion and I were able to chat and catch up, enjoy a great Reuben sandwich, and relax.

Bluffington's is our favorite sandwich go-to. The Cajun chicken is spicy, messy but oh-so good. Another favorite is Doug's club - it has their homemade chicken salad with tomato and bacon on toasted bread. I usually can only eat a half of the sandwich so...More

Have eaten here a lots of times...an abundance of sandwich/wraps and salad choices are just part of the reason I come back. Everything looks and tastes so fresh - the flavors just flow over those tastebuds...particularly like the chipolte chicken in/on almost anything. Servers are...More

Excellent made from scratch breakfast and lunch options. For breakfast the crustless quiche and for lunch Doug's special sandwich can't be beat. The service is always friendly, pleasant, and accommodating. A slice of Americana at it's very best .
