This place is all about the bread. They make it to order as others have mentioned. I didn’t realize this meant, they literally make each bread and pull it out right as they make your sandwich. It really makes it great, but also takes time....More

Be prepared to wait in line for this hidden gem! Multiple options, all priced the same. Bread fresh out of the oven, huge portions. Get your order to go as you may not be able to eat it all while there!

It is very tasty but very crowded in the lunch hour. You need to be there not after 11:50am. It closes early and didn't work in either weekends or holidays.

Twice now I have been fortunate enough to stop by here for lunch. The sandwiches are really fresh (I think they make the bread onsite) and the service is fantastic. I've been in a line of about 20 people deep and it only took about...More

I was treated to a California Sourdough sandwich last week and it was the very best sourdough sandwich I have ever eaten. The bread really made the difference. I have been recommending this place to my family and friends, I cannot comment on anything else...More
