Was second time going to this place. Always nice place to sit out and eat. Good sandwiches. First time went there on weekend, I had to wait in line but during weekdays seem like less busy!

Wonderful sandwich combinations. We ordered carryout. Pastrami mommy, cold turkey and the northern bagel. Ready in no time. All sandwiches were great. Had fun sharing them. The potato salad is certainly worth a try too. Will repeat.

I work near by Northern Waters and have had the pleasure of eating plenty of their amazing sandwiches! My favorites right now are Cajun Finn, Northern Bagel, and Cold Turkey. The SMALL shop is located right at one of the entrances to the DeWItt-Seitz Marketplace...More

The sandwich was very good. My wife and I shared it. Thought the price was a bit high. Was told the smoked salmon was the best ever. Probably will go back to try something new.
