We travelling through Willits on our way to the coast and found this outstanding little place to stop for lunch. Their sandwiches are out-of-this-world! A must try!

I had the chicken pesto artichoke sandwich with ranch dip. Friends had the French dip and one of the salads. It was all great but we all liked my meal the best. Great service, great front porch. You should definitely give this place a try.

We decided to stop in here on our road trip after reading some good reviews. They were right! The french dip was so delicious! My son had the vegetarian sandwich and he said it was great too. Cute little place with friendly service. Glad we stopped here!

We would never have found this cute little place if it hadn't been for other reviews. We were not disappointed. The French Dip sandwich was one of the best I've had. And a delicious salad made lunch perfect! Very friendly atmosphere, helpful waitresses. Crowded, which speaks well for its reputation. There was outdoor service as well as cozy booths inside....

We were hungry. The food was excellent. The service was excellent. Friendly staff and attentive for refills etc. We enjoyed the place. Its a nice interior. I like separate bathrooms. I fell that just because you can get away with it legally doesn't mean you should. This place was a nice stop on our journey.
