This place is amazing! The biscuits and jam are awesome, and the sandwiches are really filling. Plus the outdoor area is super cute.

Very small, but excellent service and food. It is always quick to get in, eat and get back to work. They have signature sandwiches named after various famous people. All of the food I have eaten here has been great. My wife loves going here...More

The food looked absolutely gorgeous and was picture-worthy. The taste was lacking in my opinion though. I think I expected more because of how gorgeous the presentation was. The staff was very friendly, the price was very reasonable, but food was just OK for me....More

Stopped by for lynch and it was very good food for the money. I had greens and bacon and they were great so don't forget to try the sides. Informal, cheap and very good food.
