I had The best ham salad sandwich ever there this week, brought me down memory lane. Everything was fresh and packed with great produce. I would highly recommend this place for lunch.

Stopped by for a sandwich and was rewarded with a very good sandwich, at a very fair price served by very good staff. Recommend is you want a quick bite of fresh well made food.
