The food is always good here and a great place to go if you want a quick lunch or dinner. Love their chicken salad sandwiches and pastries.

The food is always good and the service is also. For lunch would recommend the soup and half sandwich. Always fresh and appetizing. This location is excellent as most I have visited are. Lunch w/beverage runs almost$10. Highly recommend.

Add more trimmings to your salads please. Do that and it'll be a super meal. The breads are delicious too. Thanks
