I had two different soups during lunch hour and bith were very good. French lentil soup and corn chowder. Both are excellent with a cheddar breadstick.

Stopped at ABP for a 1p.m. lunch and regretted it almost immediately. The layout of the place is absolutely the worst I have ever seen. The place was mobbed, the roped off waiting area is right in the center of the restaurant with a bank of cashiers to one side. So with everyone up front, it creates a frantic, hurried and unfriendly place. there are people getting their food either pre-made or order fresh and a horde of people waiting to pay, each group bumping into the other making for some very confusing and ultra stressful minutes.
The stress is visible in the cashiers who are short tempered and very hurried so that they can't, they just can't give you good customer service. it's truly a very bad ambiance.
The food: I got the hummus and veggie wrap - yuk! absolutely NO hummus in the thing. it was like a chopped salad in a tortilla, it was cold and had no taste. My husband got a fruit cup which he enjoyed and also a chocolate pastry which he said was so-so but very light on the chocolate filling.
The restrooms were clean but the tables were filthy. we sat in a booth and not one person came by the clean the tables in the 30 minutes we were there. my husband went to the men's room and got some towels with soap to clean our table.
The place has got to be a fire hazard with all the strollers in the aisles and people having to walk over them to get to the tables. We will not be coming back here.

I went to the one in the mall and the people were very courteous, the salads are great but they are better if you make it your own. The lemonade is natural and tasty... is a must!

My favorite place to grab a quick bite and drink while at the Short Hills Mall. It can get very crowded, but most of the time the lines move quickly.
Food is very good.
