Love this place! All orders are made to order....very fresh! Generous helpings at good prices. My only reason for not giving a 5 rating is that the deli is very small, sometimes you wait, but it is worth it!

Great sandwiches and soup. Not the greatest experience with the steak sandwiches. Everything else is very good though. Pricing is not cheap but quality is there and they have daily specials. I usualy go here once every couple of weeks. Also make sure you check their hours as they close pretty early.

We have ordered from here numerous times over the past few months and the sandwiches are fantastic. The Gio (Boar's Head Buffalo Chicken and pepper jack cheese on a pretzel roll) is one of the best sandwiches I have had.

It's a great local deli. I like either the Ruben panini or the mufalota. All the Italian subs are great and they typically have homemade soup. Great place you should visit!

Sandwiches and salads are fresh made and delicious- bakery is sumptuous as well- have never had a bad meal here- deli line can be a little bit of a wait but worth it- gelato is a must dessert

One time we went I swear the soup tastes like cigarette butts. We promised to never go back. However, we do and we just do not get soup. Great pretzel roll bun.

The place itself is pretty nice, there's a good atmosphere and it's clean. I went with two colleagues who got the grilled chicken on pretzel bread and the breakfast panini, they both really enjoyed their meal. I got a grilled cheese panini with tomato which was ok, but the cheese was just plastic sliced cheese. There weren't a great deal... More
