I stopped in here this past weekend because I keep hearing how good their grilled cheese is. Well I got one and it lived up to the hype! While I was waiting, I took a good look at what else they have and it definitely made me want to go back! The grilled cheese was delicious and all of the... More

A gem of a place in downtown NB for lunch. Don't let the unassuming exterior fool you! This place has homemade soups, hearty yet healthy sandwiches and tons of veggie and vegan options. Love it. Try the Wunderkind salad for a super-heatlhy lunch.

I absolutely love their soups and sandwiches. I work close by and love the fact I can find something to eat that's totally meatless and still enjoyable! The staff are very friendly. It's a great place to eat in, take out or eat at their outside seating when weather permits! Try the Chickpee peanut curry soup. It's the best!

Stopped in for lunch & wasn't disappointed. The staff recommended the kale soup which we ordered along with the Portucheese grilled cheese sandwich. The price was very reasonable which wasn't compensation for the flavour of both my dishes as they were great! The kale soup seriously knocked the cold out of me! The Portucheese was delicious! A cool little place... More

Attended an event here and was very impressed with the food. It comes across as a bit of a "deli" but the food is exceptional. The creamy basil soup was to die for and the sandwiches, wraps and wunderkind salad were amazing. Highly recommended.

If you need a basic meal without fancy surroundings, this small hole in the wall spot fits the bill. You can easily walk here from the Fairfield Inn on the waterfront.
