Stopped here on a cold winter day for lunch. Great atmosphere, wonder soup and sandwich. Real food, not fast food. Make sure you don't miss this one.

I ordered sandwiches through the drive through one day. They did take a bit to make but they were very good! Came with chips and a pickle too.

I stayed across the street at Kings Point. I went through the drive-thru a little before 6 a.m. This place opens very early they make their own Bagels and service and great brewed coffee. Very friendly and very fast.
