Hi a nice place, unfortunately they don't accept chip credit cards here so if you need to use the chip no acceptance possible (so I didn't get any food with credit). Location itself is nice and the staff is friendly. Food tastes good.

Specialties are located throughout the San Jose area. They serve nice salads and sandwiches in a deli style of a setting. They are also known for their ample size portions and big cookies.

Had an excellent chicken salad sandwich called the "Napa Waldorf Chicken Salad." Has things in it that I wouldn't normally try....but I'm trying to shift my paradigms with food. The sandwich includes walnuts, apples, raisins and cranberry sauce. Interesting and delicious. I have been back...More

Great Turkey Sandwich! I feel that this place has great soup and sandwiches - pricing feels a little high but convenient locations, friendly staff and fast service.

Really fresh and good food. Good choices for vegetarians. The best part is order online and pick up on the time given. Very convenient.
