This place is awesome. Great for breakfast and lunch. Sandwiches are reasonably priced, and oh so tasty. Fantastic salads as well. The service crew are friendly and make you feel welcome. Great place to eat, but know that they do get busy during lunch.

This parking lot gets ridiculous around lunch time. I work nearby, and I order my lunch online. I can pick it up early on my way to work, or at 11 when there are still one or two spots easily available. Their food is really...More
