I have eaten at Once Upon a Thyme numerous times and have loved every meal. Joy and her staff have a wonderful menu full of homemade soups, sandwiches, salads and desserts. It is always busy so plan accordingly. Great prices and cozy/quaint atmosphere.

We love to split our meals. Wife had the Caribbean sandwich and I had Curried Chicken. Both were great but as a mixed set they complimented each other and were supreme. You must try this place.
