Good lunch place. You can get a salad, a sandwich or a quesadilla. They also have really good tart frozen yogurt. One of the only real places to get food in McLean.

We just had two different salads. One of the server was knowledgeable, the other was confused and had lack of training. Portion was generous on one the other was stingy. Tofu was hard and tasteless. Spices were hidden on the shelf and hard to reach....More
