I stopped here while doing some business outside Altavista. I saw it while driving down the road. I felt everything was average. I purchased a salami, cheese, and tomato sandwich with a bag of chips and ice tea. You place your order and they buzz you when it is ready, so there is no waitress. The atmosphere is OK, tables...

Drive by and seen several cars near by but inside was rated empty. It was just after one so that didn't throw me. I was looking for plate lunch specials but they don't offer that. It's a very 'new age' place for the town I believe. But that's not a bad thing. I got the chef salad. It was HUGE... More

Ventured into Altavista in search of something better than a fast food chain. We found it. Excellent steak panini and Philly cheesesteak. Tea excellent. Chips....were chips. Staff were friendly and helpful. A good choice.

As Italian I have to say that caffè is one of the think I miss when I'm abroad. Luckily for me, at this place I can have an espresso as like as I'm at home in Italy.

Reservations were made and tables were set up for us, a group of about 25 people. We made our orders at the counter, and service was prompt. The food was fresh and delicious. There were no complaints.

We go here for lunch every few weeks or so. Their sandwiches are excellent, provided from a imaginative and changing menu -- healthy, tasty, satisfying. Coming with a large group? Call ahead and reserve the vault room in the former bank. Run by a well known local couple and their always smiling associates. Clean, and relatively quiet for a sandwich... More
