Cuban was great. Toasted like a panini. Great chips. Fast courteous service. Good iced tea. Side salad large enough to share.

This Is a great choice for lunch or dinner, and if you are staying at the HIE next door, no worries about driving. Excellent variety of sandwiches. Try a heavenly grilled cheese or smoke salmon with home made fries. Yum!
