I love the sandwiches at Basil's. The bread is delicious. I am not sure what sandwich I got, but it has olive salad and I added pesto mayo.

This is one of my favorite sandwich places. Their paninis are amazing and you can order a panini pie that serves a family, but try to order the pies ahead of time. They have other stuff on the menu too.

Basil's is a cute little restaurant, friendly staff and okay food. Our first order was made wrong, so the proprietor made the order correctly and at no charge. Worth checking out for a freshly made lunch meal.
