Quick summary: the menu is mostly sandwiches, soups, and salads, Very well-crafted. Reasonable prices for excellent quality. Sunny, airy room.

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The menu is mostly a range of hot and cold sandwiches, excellent homemade soups, and salads. There is usually a specialty item -- quiche on the day we went. There is also a burger and good vegetarian options.

Portions are a good size, so we split a sandwich combo that comes with a large soft drink and choice of cup of soup, chips, or salad of the day (pasta salad when we were there.) We split an excellent grilled Tuscan sandwich with nice greens on it. I had the cup of vegetarian chili with the "package," which was very nicely spiced. To round out lunch for him, my husband had a bowl of the creamy chicken andouille gumbo. Everything was fresh-tasting, well-seasoned, and delish.

There is also the option of a half sandwich and cup of soup, if you are on your own.

Sunny, airy dining room.

Friendly, nice service -- order at the counter, and your order will be delivered to the table. To note: the menus are in an unobtrusive basket near the register. I often hear people asking where the menus are.

Very reasonable prices for the quality served.

Good coffee and pastries for breakfast hours.

So why not four stars? I can quickly get tired of sandwiches, even well-prepared ones like these, and I like to have more than soup for lunch, even the generous bowl that can be ordered here. If I could trust that they'd have a quiche I'd like, or a little more variety...

So, I'm sure I'll be back, but I have to be in the mood for a sandwich.
