We grabbed delicious sandwiches with egg, turkey sausage, kale pesto and gruyere cheese. So tasty and enjoyed it while taking in the views from the waterfront. It is a great spot to pick up a very good breakfast sandwich.

Find this place in the Great Hall at the City Market. Always busy because the food is good! We inconvenienced the two gals working tonight and asked for a Cubano panini and a Cobb salad about closing time. No problem. Our food was freshly prepared...More

A stroll through downtown landed us in this cool little gem of healthy food selections! What a great treat to see so many vegetarian choices. I chose the "Bama salmon sandwich" thinking I was getting a piece of salmon on toasted sourdough but instead I...More
