I think a lot of people feel obligated to try this place - I did. It was cheap, a bit quirky, and really good! The service is very casual and they are clearly geared for a a lot of throughput. I visited when it was...More

Went for a lunchtime Beigel, and was suggested to have a salt Beef sandwich for little more pennies. Absolutely fabulous and too much for me to finish - despite being so hungry. First time and no hesitation in wanting to go again.

I've seen a review which says they don't do Gluten Free. I know they take cash only. Kosher? Is the pope Catholic?
