The drive-thru is a little slow but I'm glad we have that option! They have a good selection of sandwiches. I think they should have more soup options.

This restaurant has very good food. Homemade breads and pastries and the sandwiches have a good amount of meat. The only downfall is the lack of parking because it's in downtown Olympia, but well worth the trip.

I love the turkey and swiss with pineapple on jalapeño bread. The burgers are really good too. They make their own bread...it's simply great.

The food was great, but service was slow. I wouldn't suggest going on lunch hour, but I would suggest going.

Delicious homemade everything. Breads are fantastic. Try the jalapeño bread. Soups and desserts are fantastic too. Huge cinnamon rolls and every piece of pie I've sampled has kept me coming back for more. My favorite sandwich is the club on jalapeño substituting cucumbers for tomatoes....More

I loved this sandwich shop. The soup and breads for the sandwiches are all made in house. They have a great variety and the staff are extremely friendly. This place is a must try!

The chips made on site are solo good. Seating is a little tight, and it's always busy, but worth the wait.

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