Great croissant sandwiches paired with various daily soups. LOVE the tomato bisque and a grilled cheese! Clean interior, great service Order at the counter, pick up at the counter. Seating gets a little scarce at peak times.

The Franklin Mercantile Co. is another nice eatery and coffee shop. The breakfast is great and there is outdoor seating.

Excellent attention to detail. The Black Forest Ham Panini was super delicious as was the cucumber salad and baked potato salad. The accompanying spices were perfectly blended and not overpowering. A half a block off Main St. but worth the effort of seeking out.

The food was what I expect of a typical deli but found the service to be somewhat underwhelming. One order for a member of our party completely ignored their custom requests (leave off certain condiments) then they merely scraped them off when the mistake was...More
