After hearing good things about the place I couldn't wait to stop by. The first red flag was the extremely cold dining room. We were forced to sit outside where it wasn't much warmer. The iced tea I ordered was sour and the server told me "their tea is brewed fresh daily." Do describe the food as mediocre is generous.... More

The poblano soup here is worth driving from far away places! Today I got the hot grilled pastrami sandwich and was very pleased. Somehow the bottom managed to stay crisp also. It was wonderful! Ambiance is nice on the patio. Great selection on the menu makes this a goto spot any day.

Service was very attentive, but not over the top, just the right amount of space. Food was flavorful. The salmon was prepared exactly has requested, medium rare. The experience overall was very good.

Great restaurant with an excellent menu. We invariably dine at this establishment when we are celebrating an event because the food is always superbly cooked and delicious. The service is always fully accommodating and friendly.

Good restaurant for ladies luncheon. Bit too crowded but the food is always good. The reason for the 4 stars is they can't seem to get the drinks right. At the moment the soft drink machine has some weird new stuff that nobody drinks. Also, my glass had lipstick marks on it. Kinda unacceptable as far as I'm concerned. With... More

Delicious little sandwich shop nestled in a strip mall. Don't let the small size deceive you- the food is fantastic! Had the chicken tortilla soup and it was delicious. Cheese, chicken, avocado & tortilla strips in a perfect broth. The sandwich was the Orchard- turkey, brie, shredded apples, lettuce & bacon! Sooooo good!

Tried this place for lunch and was not disappointed. Great sandwiches and soups. They are a little pricey, but everything is home made.

I found Picnikins while at a company training close by. Trip Advisor said it was basically awesome. Well it is. I asked the cashier for a recommendation. I got the Vermont Salad. So good! Fresh...oh and that tangy sweet dressing is to die for. Lol at my pic! That's shredded green apples in a sauce!

We wanted something light for lunch, but on vacation so didn't want something from a chain restaurant. This place really delivered. Sandwiches were stacked high with several bread choices and soup was solid. The service was a bit weird. We sat ourselves and several people helped us through the lunch, but at the end when we got check a girl... More
