Good sandwiches, soups. Fast service and loved the outdoor seating. The place was right across from the office I was visiting, so was very convenient and good vegetarian sandwich too.

We enjoyed our coffee and tea with a delicious scone while sitting outside and doing some people watching! Great choices of size and variety of scones-I can't imagine you not finding one you loved! We did!
