We were very impressed with the fun style of service here. It was as if we went back in time to the little cafes from the past.

The food was good and a good value and the atmosphere was very pleasant. It had a good sandwich/coffee shop atmosphere. It was a good place for a small group to visit over a lunch brake.

Didn't expect the level of FANTASTIC sandwiches in this little town. Truly on par with the best NYC deli -- and not as expensive! Bonus: every menu item description makes you chuckle, and there's many gluten-free options!

Had lunch at Solomon's while visiting nephew at Asbury. Very cozy local joint with friendly smiles and service. I had The Circuit Rider (roast beef with grilled onion on a croissant). Fantastic!!!
