Seating is skimpy, but the sandwiches and soups are packed with fresh ingredients and made with attention to detail. It can be tough to choose between a sandwich and soup combo or a salad, but whichever way you go you'll be happy.

Working in Princeton, I've tried this spot a few times. The prices are rather too high for what you get and the soup is just okay. Recently had the butternut squash soup and encountered several bits of squash skin. Too thick to be properly called soup. The $10 minimum for credit card purchases pushed me into having to also order... More

Lobster salad: great portion, good enough for 2 people, no special taste. Too soggy Lobster roll: good size, too soggy, bread was pretty much liquid. Taste is ok. Price: ~ $21 each Will we return: not for lobster

Had lunch here. I got a hummus with pita-bread, carrot, celery and avocado, my husband grilled cheese sandwich. We were both very happy with our meals - they were large, but not too large. The sandwich included cheese (of course!), tomatoes and avocado - and was really tasty. The hummus was one of the best I've tasted (and I've had... More

We stopped in this small corner lunch shop for a quick carry-out soup and sandwich before getting on the road. It is just a doorway on the corner of the square of old Princeton shops near the Nassau Inn and a bit easy to miss. The lobster bisque was some of the best I have had with lots of chunks... More

Had the seafood chowder, was good, chili dog average. $20 for soup and a hot dog for two. It is a tiny place, and not so quick place to get a bite.

Great, friendly service. The fries are not to be missed. Delish smoothie and turkey crab salad. Very snug so only 8-10 people can dine in comfortably.

Really, really good sandwiches and soups. A tiny place with only about four tables (including outside), but the staff are amazingly efficient and the sandwiches are great!
