Felt like I was in a fantastic panera... Quick casual line to get your pastries and yogurts, etc... They'll bring you the hot stuff. Very good quality and price for the area.

Love this place for a quick lunch to go. Their salads never disappoint nor has the soup. If you eat in the bread at the condiment station is a nice perk.
