The place is rather small and should perhaps be freshened up a bit. Food is still quite good but it is still very annoying to be charged for chili sauce.

Nice sandwich shop. The food is very good. Small place but it's worth it if you're in the area. The sandwiches won't disappoint

How can a sandwich be so. Frickin. Good? Not sure. Think it's magical combinations and winning ingredients. All served in a low key atmosphere with super staff.

Wow - the brunch paninis were warm and wonderful - perfect for a cold day. And the variety and flavors from the crostinis were also fantastic. Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Can't go wrong!

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Astoria. The prices are good and the food is excellent. We've been a few times and I'm sure we'll be there again soon.
