I recently went here with a couple of friends, and the food was amazing! There are lots of different food options to pick from and it's an ideal place for a snack or lunch. I had a cranberry turkey wrap that was fantastic, and I had to hold myself back from getting some of the sweets they had out specially... More

After stopping four times, this place if off my list. The people waiting on you are curt, unfriendly, like they are doing you a favor.

The fruit tart tasted old like yogurt with soggy fruit. The gluten free blueberry. Scone was hard and had an after taste like gluten free products that are not made well. The customer service person was unfriendly did not speak and I would probably never go back there again

Since I don't eat meat, I ordered a sandwich with cheese and veggies. I didn't realize, and they didn't inform me, that the veggies were chopped chunks for salad, not sliced for sandwiches. The sandwich was sloppily made and a lot of the fillings fell out. I wasn't impressed. My husband said his ham sandwich was pretty good. The assortment... More

We enjoyed the little cake desserts we bought here. Everything looked good but it is a little pricey. We stood in line for 10 minutes while the counter girl chatted with someone. They were very nice to let us use their phone to find our rental home since our phones had no service. We appreciated that a lot! Any seating... More

Good thing they're not being rated for their personalities behind the counter. The food is good a little pricey for what they give you. Very good selections. It's a place I wouldn't go out of my way for. It seems as if they're doing you a favor by waiting on you. Everything that I've had there has been very good... More
