We enjoyed going here, it was slow when we were there so service was fast. The pastry case looks really good. We were there for a quick lunch. Chowder for me.

Good place for lunch. Sandwitches and soups are good. Fairly fast service as you order at the counter, have a seat, and food is brought to table.
