One of the best lunch places in Cromwell. I have never had a bad meal. From the daily soup selection, the salads, the wraps, the grinders that you can't finish or the pizza. I dare you to try and finish one of their paninis! You...More

I ordered a panini [actually went half-and-half with companion to to taste two]. They are enormous. Thick crusty bread, think sliced meat, cheese and sauces - all add up. The pastrami Reuben and the southwest turkey were both great. Having said that, a warning, this...More

My favorite dish is their thick crust pizza with sauce and greater cheese, the way my mother-in-law made it! We also like their cold cut grinders, and their chicken salad is made with dried cranberries and nuts! Most of the time we do take out...More

Huge sandwiches stuffed with fresh meats, cheeses, and vegetables on fresh bread! Amazing old school “Grandma’s” style pizza on tender dough and a light, tangy tomato sauce! You’ll leave satisfied, with some left to take home, and with some extra money left in your wallet.

Small hole in the wall place that is totally worth it. Not a whole lot of seating inside, but a lot of their business is take away. Huge portion sizes. Their sandwiches may seem expensive, nearly $10 for a panini, but they are huge and...More

I walked out stuffed. The chicken &a rice soup was a meal in itself. The paninis are huge, enough for two meals. Try Didi's Cole slaw, it fantastic if your lucky enough to stop in when she is making it. Always excellent.
