Visited the PC on Calhoun street a couple of times and have not had a bad bite. The grilled cheese and the Greek sandwich are both top shelf and the sides are very tasty. You can call ahead or get delivery if you are local. Not fancy, but great for a quick lunch.

I love this little place - it is a cafe attached to a laundromat. But the food is really great. The seating is difficult though.

I ordered a gluten-free zucchini melt from here on Monday, and it was fantastic! I could barely tell the bread was gluten-free, which is a huge compliment (gluten-free bread is usually hard and tastes like sand). I was so excited because I could have a panini safely - they clean the grill thoroughly so that there is no cross contamination, and I haven't been able to since I was diagnosed with Celiac several years ago. I also ordered the mini peanut butter and banana custard, and it was to die for! I definitely recommend this place. I know I'll be going back!

Family of 7 so the seating wasn't really for us;) but food was great! Service was quick and friendly. It is a bit weird to have the smell of laundry while your eating( not so clean on that side of the place)
Delicious food made up for it!
