I had an evening meal that included a version of a Cuban sandwich which was deliciously wonderful. The atmosphere is very casual and you seat yourself. Your order at the counter and the desserts are in the glass case to tempt you! I was there with high school classmates and we all had a positive experience and plan to return... More

I love the place. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Great daily specials, wonderful sandwiches, vegetables and entrees. They have the best egg salad and chicken salad! I eat there at least once a week.

I go to lunch here about once a month with one of the ladies I work with. They usually have a good selection something that we can all order it reminds me of the school cafeteria setup with much better food. I don't think we'll be changing our plans from going there regularly anytime soon.

This place is always busy but can be a hit or a miss! The day we went, my husband enjoyed his pot roast lunch. I ordered the 3 veg plate with cornbread cake! I think the cornbread is what made the wait so long. Greens were awesome but pinto beans reeked of salt because of ham...should have asked! Their broccoli... More

Found this place on TripAdvisor while looking for things to see on campus. Even though it was near closing time the staff was remarkable! The food was amazing, and yes a sandwich can surprise you. The chicken salad is fantastic! This was homemade food, no boxed food in sight. I will add this to my places to stop even if... More
