Limited but good menu. Order and pay at the cashier and just a few minutes later a server brings your food. Very limited wine list. Good salads and sandwiches. Good wifi. Adjacent to some wonderful art and history exhibits at The Frist.

I work near here. Walked by and decided to hopefully get a quick bite. They did not disappoint. Quick service and good sandwich. Nice setting for casual stress free lunch. Good weather can go outside. They do serve wine and beer.
