Stopped in today for a s a sandwich Nov10th .After passing up $19 sandwiches at 3 different stops (I'm talking BLT sandwiches$19) finally a place that does not price gouge! $5-$8 big sandwiches and to top it off Good! $1 cans of soda too! Right next to the Tap house and post office .Well worth the stop.

After having a beer in brew house next door, stopped here to get sandwiches to go. Lots of ingredient choices and sandwiches are custom made. Wrapped in plastic wrap they kept great while we went on hike nearby. Lots of food at an affordable price. Wasn't crowded and they made the sandwiches in a couple of minutes. Great option for...

We ordered a sandwich to go, service was quick and the sandwiches were good, although I didn't care for the white bread they use which is an important factor to a great sandwich.

Our son recommended this stop; truly gourmet type sandwiches that were great; I think we all had "Italian sandwiches"; chips, soft drinks, and/or beer and you have the perfect lunch; excellent service, glad we stopped here; Would definitely return if in the area again.

Saw firefighters stopping here for morning coffee and figured what could be wrong with this choice! Great idea! Cool local deli with breakfast sandwiches, but better as a deli and general store. Coffee was fresh and hot. Also the location for evening fare at the Taphouse.

I love this little place after a long and pleasant drive. Nice place to stop and stretch your legs. The most pleasant surprise I found here was the only can of Gourmet Boneless & Skinless Sardines in pure olive oil made by Cannery Row Sardine Co. !!! Nowhere in the Cannery Row did I find a sardine (which was puzzling... More

We stopped here for some lunch on the way to San Fransisco. We had a cheese and ham grilled sandwich which was the best I've ever had. The staff are friendly and the food is great. Absolutely recommended.

Pretty basic little shop. We purchased two pre-made sandwiches. They were very large sandwiches, we could each only eat half. The prices seemed reasonable.

We were driving to McWay Falls from the north. I'm glad we passed some busier places on the way to stop here. They made the sandwiches as we ordered. My son enjoyed their cookies. I was personally happy to have a sandwich with large sized roll.

This is a country general store with a deli in the back. There are many choices , but the burritos were very good and HUGE. There is outdoor seating to relax. The river Inn is next door but the prices were high. My family was happy and we had left overs.
