Stopped in for lunch and had many options. There is something for EVERYONE here. We each picked out a sandwich, shared a cup of soup and a sweet treat. Lots of choices. It can be a little overwhelming but worth it!

This is my favorite place during the week to go for a work lunch. It's also a wonderful place to get an early dinner before seeing a show at the Schnitzer or the performing arts Center.
