What drew me to this lunch was the name. It is the same as a favorite of mine in North Carolina.
It is a wonderful spot for lunch. I had the Reuben sandwich which I can never resist. It was perfect. Extra dressing on the side.
Lots of locals and tourists made for a busy lunch. A couple of antique stores close by for browsing made it a perfect stop.

I love this place! I come usually at least once or twice a week for lunch since my office is closeby.

The staff is all friendly, and the service is excellent.

My go-to favorites are the Italian salad, the cuban sandwich or one of their homeade soups (they have 7-10 soups and the soup selection changes daily). Their hanburgers are great as well!

It does get a little loud in there, though, so don't pick this spot if you need a place to hold a quiet conversation.

Good sandwiches and great soup. Super busy for lunch, but the service is fast and you will get served.

Was disappointed in the lack of "ambience" here - big room, lots of windows full of tables and chairs. Get your own beverage. Chips? grab a bag off the rack across the room. Strange! But quite a varied menu, the food was tasty. And if you wanted plain water, there were jugs of water with cucumber/cantaloupe or strawberries and cantaloupe - nice touch!

This is a great place for lunch. Good selection of sandwiches, soups, and salads. They also have gluten free options. It’s a small place so you may have to wait a few minutes for a table. Service is always good.
