After hearing good reports from friends, I was underwhelmed with the food. No atmosphere --- very sterile. The coffee was not impressive either.

We stopped her for takeout . The menu had a wide variety of things to choose from. There were 3 or 4 tables in a very big open space. It smelled delicious in there. We ordered quesadillas which were good and what I would expect. They had some premade salads/sandwiches in the refrigerated case. This was a good place to... More

Scallions is run by two seasoned chefs. Their lunches, take out, and catering are all delicious and different. It's an informal, order at the counter sort of place. They are friendly, accomodating, and civic minded. The used books in the restaurant are for sale, and proceeds help feed hungry local children.

Scallions appears to be a large spotless sandwich joint with food and beverages in cases as you approach the counter. But you take a bite of the food, you are transported to a five star restaurant in a cosmopolitan center. My husband had an amazing Mediterranean tuna melt and I had a lamb burger. They were sensational! I have to... More

This little deli-lookalike restaurant provides delicious hot sandwiches, as well as soups, and other specialties of the day. They make a toasted cheese sandwich with caramelized sauteed onions that just melts in your mouth and drips with deliciousness. All sorts of interesting take home packages for eating later in the day, like fettucine, meatloaf, curried dumplings, numerous pasta dishes. The... More

Being locals we like trying the new places in town. This place is great for fresh sandwiches and deserts. (We'll do one of the take out dinner entree's next). It's all fresh and the buns are to die for. Oh my..can't wait to have lunch here again soon. I don't know what they did to the onions-but they are packed... More

Living in the area, you'd think that I would have been to this restaurant long before I actually got there, but, when I'm home, I like to cook. While out with friends, we decided to go to Scallions. We ordered a variety of foods, because we all "seagull" off each others plates. We ordered stuffed shells, chicken quesadilla, and a... More
