This little place is amazing. Great soups & sandwiches! The tomato jam is out of this word! I even drove 30 minutes out of my way (on a 10 hr drive) just to pick up a jar. The staff is so sweet & accommodating!

Passing through Savannah on our trip home and wanted a good place to stop for a late lunch. Wow! This tiny place has amazing food. Excellent sandwiches and soup, but save room for the cheesecake! Mouth-watering and memorable!

Panini, soup and lemon cheese cake are delightful. Small place, big taste :) Belarussian hot tea is tasty and good choice for cold rainy days.

This place was out of town and hard to find-in a small shared building. It is very small inside. We would recommend taking food to go for a picnic. That being said the food was very good. We had the Ellis and the Ardsley. The...More
