Really great food. Roasted cauliflower is delicious. Pimento grilled cheese is very tasty and goes great with the creamy tomato soup

Best Sandwich shop within 50 miles. My favorites are the Veggie Reuben (Brussel sprouts, Russian dressing, fontina, kraut, peanuts), and the Veggie Bahn Mi(broccoli, Brussel sprouts, sriracha, mayo, pickled carrots) and I am the farthest thing in the world from a vegetarian.

Excellent non traditional a couple of young fellows that put a spin on your favorite sandwich. Must try the Brussels sprouts.

Awesome little place. I got the pork grilled cheese that was huge. I’m a big guy but I couldn’t finish it. Salad was great too!

The sandwiches are great. The seating is ok. Great for take out. The service is very good. The pricing is appropriate for the quality of the food. It is a downtown place where the staff works hard to make sandwiches well and quick. Good selection...More
