We stopped in for lunch on our trip to upstate NY and found a piece of paper taped to the front window. Taking daughter to CO for college and then taking a vacation. Closed for the foreseeable future. Sorry for any inconvenience.More

Patricia, I am a bit baffled. I left a voicemail message on my phone line and a note on my door, both informing patrons that I was taking a much deserved vacation to bring my daughter to college in Colorado. How does that warrant 2...More

I have never been in such a disorganized, angry place. The young woman at the counter was pleasant enough, but she was doing 5 things at the same time - all during a single transaction. She would leave the customer halfway through an order to...More

We stopped for lunch. 4 people $45. 4 sandwiches with 4 drinks. The wait was long considering there were only 4 other customers. Food quality was great, but it didn't wow for the price.

Hours on their google site say 11-6. Went at 4 and they were closed. Guy came out and asked us if we were looking for food and said they closed early. Weird place.

This has got to be my most favorite sandwich shop! And I do have a few to choose from, being in western Massachusetts. The owner is personable, and guaranteed to steer you right (if you can't decide). From coffee, to Italian ice, or just great...More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and wanted to grab something to-go to take to Tanglewood with us. The gourmet sandwiches were pricey, but worth it. Boars Head meats, fresh veggies, artisan rolls and breads. Delicious.
