Had lunch with a group of 12; spread out to 3 tables. Great sandwiches & salads. Service was attentive and prompt. Reasonable prices. Consider calling ahead if coming in at prime times. Good surprise.

The Veranda has the best chicken salad anywhere! Nice atmosphere, good service, but sometimes difficult to get seated because it's so popular. I work downtown, so I usually get mine to go.

The sandwiches are amazing! Everything going by our table looked fabulous. We had Turkey and Brie with cranberry mayo, and the mushroom soup....which was absolutely devine. Our friends had the French dip, and they were equally pleased. There are some really innovative combinations here.
