Bluffington's has the best tuna fish salad sandwich! Always a good size, served on soft bread (I like their whole wheat) comes with your choice of chips or cole slaw (the best). I order ahead of time and swing by to pick up.

Bluffington's is our favorite sandwich go-to. The Cajun chicken is spicy, messy but oh-so good. Another favorite is Doug's club - it has their homemade chicken salad with tomato and bacon on toasted bread. I usually can only eat a half of the sandwich so...More

I bike here solo or with friends every week or two. If you arrive by 10:30, be sure to have one of their scones. Fresh daily and very tasty! Coffee and sandwiches (especially the egg bluffing ton) are good and very reasonably priced. Service is...More
