Freshly baked baguettes, local pickled vegetables, close to Pebble beach. Great place to have lunch or order pizza.

Not much to look at from the outside, but inside is some terrific home cooking. Juicy meatballs, delicious 18inch pizza with homage sauce, and a variety of hot and cold sandwiches thoughtfully packaged with chips and pickle (to make it a meal).

Pretty standard sub sandwich and panini menu. The hot sausage sub was very good as was the hot eggplant. Phoned in order was ready for pick up in 10 minutes. Very convenient and tasted great for a fair price.

Only one 18" size, so this was our meal for two days. Pizza is thin crust and is slightly charred, which just adds to the flavor.

Small place but good for a quick stop. I wanted to stop to get a cold sub. Price was a little high, but that was expected. I got an Italian sub and was very pleased with the quality of meat. Service was quick and they were very friendly.

Huge 18 inch pizza loaded with toppings, with fast friendly efficient service. We stayed just up the road so it was convenient for us for a quick meal. Turned out to be absolutely delicious. Will get another soon!

Had the lobster roll. The toasted homemade ciabatta roll was fantastic. Great lobster, all meat, no fillers, and very light on the mayo
