Not a huge menu but good, traditional italian sandwiches, soups. You can get 3 toasts for $8 (or around there) and it's hard to pick just 3!! Mmm Mmm good. There's also a lot of seating indoors. Best for a light lunch.

The egg panini was outstanding. Perfectly cooked soft scrambled eggs with a delicious soft cheese. The crostinis are also very good.

I had the soup and salad. My soup was excellent but the dressing on the salad was too onion-y for me. I would definitely try again.
