“Great sandwiches made the way you want them”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

They make a hot pastrami exactly how I love it, leaving everything off I don't want. And the falafel wrap is SO good. What a gift, to have a place in Ellsworth where you can get these (diverse) things made so well and served with friendly efficiency. They make your food right when you order and it doesn't take long. Their baked treats are gorgeous and plentiful and breakfast choices look great, though I've only made it for lunch. It's tucked away through the back of Union River Toy/book store, so don't turn back thinking you are in the wrong place.....it's well worth finding.

“Excellent food, great service and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

The sandwiches are unique and are all made with fresh quality ingredients. The soups and baked goods are also very good. There is also a play area for children.
A friendly atmosphere with great food. For the money this is the BEST place in Ellsworth for lunch.

“Great food and friendly service”

The seafood chowder is out of this world. Sandwiches, salads and yummy baked goods. They even carry gluten free bread and baked goods. Definitely will be back again.
