I went here twice while visiting my sister. The sandwiches are so good. It is easier to order ahead and then pick up.

Strictly lunch (although there are some great muffins and coffee) -- always busy with visitors and locals grabbing the BEST sandwiches. My favorite is actually the egg salad -- but I think the most popular is the meatloaf. Vegetarian options as well. Call ahead!

If you are looking for a local sandwich shop this is it. Everything is home cooked and very tasty. A little on the pricer side, but totally worth it. On the other side of MDI, but worth the drive.

Originally stopped because of the sign... Real good food, yes please! The menu was creative and limited. The sandwiches were sooo good, great for a light lunch or snack after hiking. We also enjoyed the no bakes and drink selection.

We probably would have never stopped here, except a local suggested this would be a great place for lunch. They were not wrong. Incredible sandwich (actually so big it was too much to est). Can't go wrong here.
