Several times a month I stop in here for lunch, and often for take away dinners. Their salad bar is the best lunch in town, their soups are always fresh and delicious with at least 2 or 3 to choose from. It is always a friendly, customer oriented experience. I love this place! Supporting women owned business is another plus... More

This is a very cute place. The soup was excellent. They sell a lot of local gourmet food items as well as fresh breads and deli.

I thought that this place was closed but it isn't. The Italian foods are made the right way for us fussy Italians. The cannoli's are made every day from what I was told. The cannoli's were not too sweet and the crust was firm. What a treat! I will go back for the eggplant lunch special on my next visit.... More

A wonderland of Italian ingredients that will be hard to find even in larger communities. Food cooked on premises and packaged for home , to be eaten there or frozen for your enjoyment at a later date. More varieties of pasta than knew the Italians had words for!

Had a couple subs and they were fabulous. All the ingredients are super fresh and a great find to a place tucked away off the beaten path.

This is an interesting place, lots of unusual foodstuffs, rather pricey though. Counter staff was pleasant but overwhelmed with keeping up with food prep at lunch hour. If you are in a hurry, there is a salad bar option in the adjoining seating area with enough choices to make up an interesting plate.

They have house made soups and several different sandwiches. You can do a little gourmet food shopping while your order is being made and bring it to a table in the next room to enjoy.

It was just what we were looking for after our long drive and with quite an appetite. Lots to chose from and the Italian baked good were delicious. We actually tried to pick some up on our way back home (for the ride home), but we were disappointed to learn that they only prepare those on the weekends. Word to... More

Great sandwiches and other take out items. New buffet style lunch looks interesting but didn't have time to check it out. Always fresh and friendly.

We literally bought a loaf of French bread, a hunk of mozzarella and a chunk of cheddar. Sat out front having that and were so happy with it. I can only imagine how good everything else is!
