Specialties are located throughout the San Jose area. They serve nice salads and sandwiches in a deli style of a setting. They are also known for their ample size portions and big cookies.

Great Turkey Sandwich! I feel that this place has great soup and sandwiches - pricing feels a little high but convenient locations, friendly staff and fast service.

Really fresh and good food. Good choices for vegetarians. The best part is order online and pick up on the time given. Very convenient.
