A little jewel in Clinton. Just a store front up some stairs but inside there is great food. They have delicious salads, sandwiches and award winning soups. There are a few tables but we usually do takeout and sit by the river enjoying the view.

We eat here several times a month for lunch. In good weather we do take out and enjoy the local scenery. Limited seating inside. Soups are usually great and sandwiches are HUGE! Motto is "you'll need a fork to eat one" and that's the truth. Sandwich menu is extensive. Any sandwich can be a wrap also. Salads are available for... More

Great subs - a good staff and you support local business. Sometimes you just need a good sub/sandwich - this is the place. The soup is great too.

I've been going here for years. Always fresh, amazing sandwiches! The only sandwich shop in the area that never disappoints. Always friendly and helpful staff.

We've ordered from here quite a few times since we moved to Clinton. Everything is always so fresh and delicious. Looking forward to trying the cheese soup once the weather gets cooler, heard its amazing. Also you can't beat the price. Most times I feed our little family for under $25.

Our family enjoyed the subs while sitting outside facing the old mill. They were made quickly and were delicious. The price was great. I'd go back.

This sub shop in main street is excellent. The subs are filled with quite a bit if meat the way a sub should be. The owner and staff are pleasant and quick.

This is a quaint shop in the restored area of Clinton, NJ. I was shocked at the quality of the subs we purchased and the reasonable price, a great combination. This is a beautiful area with a mill and waterfall, very scenic. Take a stroll and enjoy a sub and you will be happy.

The bread is the essential base!! You can't go wrong with the selection of top quality meats, cheese, and vegetables at this favorite Main Street eatery.

One of the gentlemen at the gas station down the road told us about this place, and I am so glad we listened. So many different kinds of subs to choose from. We got the Italian, and I am so happy that there is a place that actually puts meat on their sandwiches! Crispy white bread, lots of meat, and... More
