Lovely, quiet little place that offers unique sandwiches and salads in Allentown. Not easy to find parking because of location, so we would usually walk there from the office.

Great lunch spot. Awesome food and great prices. Not only is the food delicious, the portion size is more than fair. Variety of different items from hot lunches to sandwiches. Everything is 10 dollars and under pretty much too.
