They've changed their menu and raised prices recently. It used to be my favorite place to get a really good salad that would fill me up for lunch. Now it's overpriced, mediocre taste, and you get less food on top of it. Very disappointing the...More

I have eaten here numerous times, usually for a sandwich and salad lunch. I have never been unhappy with their food. Everything is prepared fresh and quickly (unless you hit a lunch or dinner rush). Some of my favorites are the Deluxe Grilled Cheese and...More

We had breakfast here both Saturday and Sunday. You order coffee/tea on one side and breakfast on the other. Both days our coffee/tea orders were not right. The breakfast is made to order and awesome.

I'm not going to make many friends with this review, but it is the truth. I have been to this place 3 times and every time the sandwiches were dry, the staff didn't say a word to me, and the seating was shotty. Many customers...More

I had a really nice custom made turkey sandwich with a bowl of chicken rice soup that tasted very good. It's nicely located next to the Java House so I could have a Latte with my meal.
