New address, expanded menu... we weren't starving so we decided to split a hot pressed Cuban sandwich with a side of their homemade ranch chips. The Cuban Sandwich was one of the best Cuban sandwiches we've ever had. The chips were great...if you like crunchy which we do! The restaurant is clean and airy and offers outdoor seating and wifi.... More

Was in the mood for a Cuban Sandwich and Pressed For Time was both convenient and emphasized pressed sandwiches. So I stopped there. The restaurant was clean and inviting. The service was very efficient and the server was friendly putting me quite at ease. All in all the atmosphere was just what I like. The sandwich - not so much.... More

The chicken salad is wonderful. Get as a plate with lettuce or on a roll. Our server was the best. Friendly but can get al little loud. A lot of business people go there for lunch as is close to their work. Closes after lunch.

Stopped for breakfast Monday and although we arrive at 11 when breakfast officially ends, they kindly prepared the best breakfast I have eaten in some time! Everything is home made and delicious! The biscuits are hand made as is the sausage gravy, the bacon is meaty and smoky, the home fries are fresh and tasty, the eggs done to perfection.... More

I ate breakfast for the first time this week. I have had lunch here many times and now it is my go to for either meal. We can drive our golf cart here and the sandwiches and salads are great. The, very large, omelet will delight the hungriest breakfast eater.

We eat here regularly. Although the speed of the food coming out is kind of adverse to the name, everything does come out as expected and the service is great.

This is a great sandwich shop. Its not your average one though. They've recently changed and added some new menu items to include my favorite Black and Bleu Flatbread. It is probably the best flatbread I've had. There are times where there are inconsistencies with the quality of food, probably contributed by business. Overall, must visit.

Went with a dozen ladies for lunch. Sat in the private room, which could have handled twice as many. FOOD included sandwiches (many on PRESSED Cuban bread), soups, and salads. I had the chicken salad with raisins (nice touch) on a croissant. Came with choice of homemade chips or fries, potato salad, macaroni salad, tomato/cucumber salad. I tried the chips.... More
