Stopped by for lunch and really enjoyed the meal. The sandwiches were obviously made with fresh ingredients and made when ordered. The desert was great too along with the cookies.

Great soups and sandwiches. The cranberry nut bread is wonderful. The only challenge you will have is trying to stay away from the huge pastries staring right at you while you order!
