I regularly stop in for bagels. They usually don't have Asiago in the afternoon which is my favorite. I love the fact that if I get coffee here that I can drink that cup in the store and refill up my cup for the road. I am love with the broccoli cheese soup and sesame asian salad.

Love eating here. Service is quick and food is reasonably priced. Their sandwiches are always excellent and they have very good soup with many selections. Is located in strip mall so parking is usually available. They have very good pastries and cookies for dessert.
