“Great for lunch!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

We eat lunch here often and always love the food. Simple and fresh! It can get rather crowded but they recently expanded the seating so usually no wait. Make sure you try the chicken salad it really is the best

“Nice surprise in Five Points”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We were actually walking to another restaurant for lunch on Freshman Move In Weekend and saw this place and decided to give it a try. It has been quite a while since we were in the Five Points area and had no idea this was here. My wife and I had a very nice lunch. Even though the place was going crazy with all of the people there, we felt very welcomed by the wait staff. We will definitely be back.

“So Good We Stopped Twice”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We stopped on our way down south and enjoyed it so much we went on the way back north again. Not only is the food delicious, but the shop is an enjoyable place to browse while you wait. The smoked salmon bagel was perfect, and the ham and cheese panini amazing--the Dutch cheese made it extra special. Don't forget to try some rocky road chocolate cookies from the bakery. Perfection!

“Delicious & perfect”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Chicken salad is perfect-no fancy ingredients (grapes, nuts) but delicious pulled chicken & classic recipe. Try it in the cantaloupe!! Egg salad is awesome too! Unique items in the gift shop too.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We stopped here for lunch on the way to Greenville, SC for the weekend. We sat outside and had a delicious lunch and then went inside and browsed the shop. The food was very good, the service excellent, and the friendliness of the staff exceptional -- one of them told me, "it's just in our nature to try to be helpful."
