This sandwich bar is hidden down stairs, however well worth looking for. We had a great bowl of soup with unbelievable sandwiches toasted. The lady is very friendly and the business is under new management. You will go back again and again.

This spot is nice and casual. The food was quick and delicious. I had the chicken club and my husband had the loaded grilled cheese with the soup of the day. Perfect choices. The servers were very friendly and attentive. We will definately be back.
