This cute little storefront restaurant has a nice menu of sandwiches, salads, and soup. There are a few small tables but it seems best suited for take out. The staff is friendly and helpful. The panini sandwiches are a bit small but the low prices...More

I love the creativity of the food here. Their daily specials are very much off the beaten path. Today's example: the Fluffer, peanut butter and fluff on a grilled glazed donut. It was delicious!
