This is a nice spot for the downtown businesses during lunch hour. It's only open Monday-Friday until 2:30pm.

This is not closed as reported. The sandwiches are great. The bread is super fresh & the best. Prices are reasonable.

Finally had lunch here. Spouse has lunch here a couple times a month, and I needed to check it out--he is always raving about it. So, midweek, about 11:30 AM, we had lunch. The owners and staff were exceptionally attentive, friendly, gracious. Food was really...More
