Wonderful takeout. Made from scratch salads, pasta, deserts. Great sandwiches and soups. It's just wonderfully consistent and you never get anything that's not delicious.

The chicken salad sandwich was made just the way i like it. Breads made fresh. Not a huge variety but what they have looks really good tho a little pricy. But it is a ski resort after all.
