Their menu specifies which items are gluten-free with a green circled "G" next to it, although it warns that there's a chance of cross-contamination. They also offer any sandwich on GF bread (pre-packaged Udi's). I asked them to make my daughter's sandwich on a clean...More

Eclectic and neat is a great way to describe this deli. This resembles an old country store that offers excellent food and good service. The staff is incredibly friendly with the meal being served quickly.

Just had a great sandwich called "Pilgrim's Progress." One of the best sandwich places I have been 70!

We were looking more for a coffee and snack but wasn't available, snacks that is. But the staff was very helpful and offered us alternatives so we had coffee and some very nice toast. If it was lunchtime we would have stopped again. Good stop.

Good sandwiches, good salads, non-fast-food type. Eat in or take out. You order at the counter, pay for your order and it you can pick it up when ready.

Service was fantastically quick. LOTS of choices on the menu so it was not an 'easy' pick. Glad I took my time. I certainly ordered correctly.... my sandwich was fantastic. I 100% will be eating here again on my next visit to SC. Fountain drinks...More

I bought a sandwich here for my lunch the following day, while hiking at Ano Nuevo State Park. I had the turkey, bacon, avacado and lettuce sandwich. It was so-o good, I wish I had eaten there the night I had purchased it and gone...More
