Lunch with a friend, the service was excellent, we were checked on at least every 5 minutes, our drinks were kept full. Very good soup and sandwich at a very reasonable price. Really quick service even at a busy time. Good place for quiet lunch.

Well presented meals. My chicken salad sandwich was delicious and simple. Nice young ladies serving. Good atmosphere. These are the places that make you glad you did not stop at a chain franchise. I would stop again if going through town.
