Stop in for fresh made to order sandwiches, read the newspaper, chat about local issues or politics.

Small local coffee and sandwich shop, popular with locals and visitors who are not into Dunkin donuts coffee and sweets. Good for breakfast and lunch, including GF bread and some very tasty, locally baked, pre-packaged bakery items.

My usual lunch stopover. Like that one can dine in or takeout. Laidback atmosphere. Free WiFi. The best vegetarian sandwich although only offered for a spell.

Often meet a friend for conversation there - and coffee and a bagel or sandwich if its lunch time. Coffee is fine - nice atmosphere - nice couch if you get to snag that. Sandwiches a little pricey, but good.

This was the place everyone went to before Evergrain opened. But it is hard to say they are really competitors since the ambiance and food are so different. My friends and I frequent both places, for different reasons. Sam's has some great sandwiches they make...More
