Get there early because the line gets long quick but it is worth the wait! Seating is communal style & makes it fun to meet people. Sandwiches are amazing!

Everything I've tried on the menu has been fantastic. The salad, the sandwiches, the dessert, or just bread and butter is wonderful. I would suggest it to anyone as an ideal place to eat!
