Traveling as much as I do, it's nice to find an unpretentious, casual place to have a simple meal. This place welcomed me during an unusual May hot spell with some delicious gazpacho and a great turkey club with thick bacon on toasted ciabatta. It was good enough that after spin class the next night, the gazpacho and turkey club... More

We stopped in for a quick breakfast. Nothing fancy, but the omelette was far better than expected, service was cheerful and fast, and prices very competitive for a central location.

This is a quiet sub shop just off of Nassau. They have a variety of soups and sandwiches that are all delicious. The grilled chicken is very fresh and mouth watering, while the bread used is also a delight. I highly recommend grabbing lunch from here on a cold and rainy day or any spring day!

The lobster soup was excellent, with huge pieces of tender, tasty lobster in a delicious broth. The turkey sandwich was tender and juicy on a fresh, crunchy roll.

Seating is skimpy, but the sandwiches and soups are packed with fresh ingredients and made with attention to detail. It can be tough to choose between a sandwich and soup combo or a salad, but whichever way you go you'll be happy.

Working in Princeton, I've tried this spot a few times. The prices are rather too high for what you get and the soup is just okay. Recently had the butternut squash soup and encountered several bits of squash skin. Too thick to be properly called soup. The $10 minimum for credit card purchases pushed me into having to also order... More

Lobster salad: great portion, good enough for 2 people, no special taste. Too soggy Lobster roll: good size, too soggy, bread was pretty much liquid. Taste is ok. Price: ~ $21 each Will we return: not for lobster

Had lunch here. I got a hummus with pita-bread, carrot, celery and avocado, my husband grilled cheese sandwich. We were both very happy with our meals - they were large, but not too large. The sandwich included cheese (of course!), tomatoes and avocado - and was really tasty. The hummus was one of the best I've tasted (and I've had... More
