All of the sandwiches are made ahead of time and then put in a press to heat up. I don't know how long the sandwiches sit but for the price you pay I would expect something made fresh in front of me.

Good lunch place for sandwiches or salad plus Gelato! Small but outside seating is available. Somewhat comfortable. Casual.

Every time we've eaten here, it's been a pleasure. Love the salads and entrées. Deserts, if one can manage to eat one after their meal, are fantastic.

Chicken parmesan lasagna. Have never seen on a menu. The bottle of wine was good and reasonably priced. Geletto, Italian cookies, homemade desserts. Outdoor patio.

Found this place recently, off the beat. I have been for lunch several times and the food quality is good and consistent. Have tried the Muffeletta, and the Paninis. I will recommend this place to anyone.

An outstanding Ruben! We eat here often during the week and were pleasantly surprised to find that they do table service on Saturdays.

We were tired after a long day of shopping and found this place off of the main road. Both the food and service were exceptional. The chicken noodle soup is sooooo good!

Had dessert here last night- amazing gelato. The food items looked and smelled good too- can't wait to try this place for lunch or dinner. I can see why it's considered the #1 dessert place in Foley- rightly so. Definitely recommend and I will definitely be back.
