Food there is made just for you with all healthy ingredients. We both had wraps and remembered how much we like avacado. Nice open clean, friendly atmosphere.

Excellent selection of sandwiches and other sundry items including beer. The bread is excellent. Haven't been in since remodel, but that was the only downside before was limited seating.

Taste is reliably good for lunch. Their fresh bread is the right combination of soft and crusty, and the sandwiches are delicious. My favorite is the Hilltop, a simple turkey and provolone with yummy special sauce on crusty bread. It's plain good! Their soups and...More
