Unremarkable spot on Congress Street. Doesnt have the range of healthy salads and soups you'd hope for a place like this, and instead has a basic range of sandwiches. Mine was greasy and left me feeling heavy. Nothing really wrong, but very unremarkable.

In the downtown area where it seems tough to find an affordable lunch, this was a great find. Pre made and made to order sandwiches and salads, great coffee, and beverages. Seating outside and inside. Right on pathway to conference center from hotels.

Well stocked little grocery store with lots pre-made food items to grab and go or eat there. Hot and cold items. Made many stops there. Many other locations as well.

Grabbed a taco for a snack as I saw lots of people bought some for lunch. Tasty and filled the spot. Lots of other takeaways that I think would be good to try.
