I have eaten here many times...the sandwiches are amazing, made on artisan breads. I usually get the BLT on Jalapeño bread. Bacon is thick cut and delicious. I have also had the Cobb salad, very good and filling!

Stopped in on my way to Seattle and on my way back to Portland after reading the reviews and it didn't disappoint. The sandwiches are big enough to split or be eaten over two meals. The pies are excellent. We had a coconut cream pie...More

I would hate to give an incorrect answer so I would suggest simply asking the restaurant. I think they do have alternative choices.
