It is a little bit hard to find but it is worth it. I love their sandwiches and they have a nice variety of sides to go with them. The banana bread is amazing. Definately worth trying if you haven't. Staff is super friendly also.

Pretty sure everything I ate here I had never had before! Kale salad and squash soup were two of the dishes we had. I am not used to eating vegatarian, it was ok. The folks running it were very friendly and helpful.
