We went there for lunch. it was super crowded. No place toe even breathe but that was a sign of its popularity. They handled it all well. The breads there are great. The soups and sandwiches all were excellent.

Had lunch here arriving about 1pm. All but two salads were sold out and I got the last of one of them! The lentils and feta as well as the chicken curry are excellent , well seasoned and lots of chicken in the curry.

Nice salads, sandwiches and other things where the main thing is bread. Soups also available. You can even get a guacamole side with bread. Or egg salad, or salads, or whatever... Nice industrial chic arrangement with nice cool service.

Middle Eastern Chicken Salad excellent. French fries made to order were some of the best in the City. Seating a bit cramped but primarily a business lunch crowd with short timefrrames for dining.

This place was recommended to me as a good lunch place. Went during lunch hour with lots of office workers in the area. The line for ordering was civil and moved quickly but table space was scarce and it was terribly noisy. Lots of choices...More
