We grabbed a couple of sandwiches to take back to our hotel and eat lunch. I have the bagel with the smoked salmon and cream cheese and my husband out of the ham Turkey and salami sandwich. Both were outstanding!

Had the salmon sandwich. Fabulous fresh bun. Great fillet of salmon, probably taken right from the lake that morning. Fresh and delicious! Highly recommend it 😀
