The atmosphere is warm and quaint. There is limited seating outside. The sandwiches are unique and the meats and cheeses are outstanding. I come here frequently when I am in town and it never disappoints! I can't wait to visit again!!!

Best word to describe is, fun. This is an old time store with a little attached Bistro. Good food, and reasonable prices.
