I never ever get the soup. I come here to either grab a premade salad or get one I can make of my own. The price is comparable to other salad places. It is good to stop and grab when in a rush.

We had the best American salad and soup from this shop. Everything was eaten (or Drunk) service was quick, helpful and friendly. It is just a shame there is no branch in Belfast
