I rated this 'average' as I ordered a grilled cheese and tomato, not my usual choice. It was a special, 1/2 sandwich and salad - the sandwich was full size! Great value, everyone seems to know each other which lends to a nice friendly atmosphere....More

Great salads but at least 50 percent if the time they have run out or the special salad for that day which is always disappointing since you specifically plan to go

This place has excellent lunches. Always has. It's really close to Swampscott so most people don't know it's in Salem. Great catering too. Had them cater a suprise 50th birthday party a decade ago and people still comment on how amazing the food was.

I can only speak for the quiche. We had the 9 inch broccoli which was delicious. The crust was tender and the broccoli florets were not overcooked. One unusual touch with the quiche was the upiquitous topping of cheese (cheddar) on top. I am accustomed...More
