Just around the corner from Rittenhouse Avenue, this is a great place to grab a healthy sandwich, drink or snack. I like to stop by at lunch time to get something to take to the park on the lake, which is just a few steps...More

Great food but get there early before it's sold out. No inside seating so be prepared to picnic. Very quick service.

Had the whitefish sandwich. Fish was tasty but the sandwich was a waste of money. I make more interesting sandwiches at home. Wanted to charge extra to change the bread!More

They have freshly made sandwiches in the cooler, or you can have one made to order. They have some local produce - the strawberries were in season when we were there - and they use high quality, fresh ingredients. Great place to go!

Fresh sandwiches with thick slices of meats and delicious, homemade bread...perfect stop to take sandwiches on the apostle island cruise. Other options are cheese blocks, homemade hummus and spreads and crackers to take to the park for a picnic.
