A small, friendly, neighborhood sandwich spot. Not a “deli”, but a sandwich cafe. Limited seating. A very nice selection of hot and cold sandwiches with some interesting variations. Small selection of draft beer and a few wines. Great take out.

This 7 table, plus a counter restaurant is a great place for a light lunch. Expect small hot and cold sandwiches and an assortment of salads. The food is good the service very efficient.

Garnet to small and only holds about 20 people plus the bar, but their soup and sandwiches menu hits the spot every time. The portions are large and tasty. Don’t leave without treating yourself to dessert and coffee!

I try to go here as much as possible. The service is excellent and the food is amazing. I've never once had a bad experience. The desserts are also amazing; this is the only place that I consistently get dessert.
