A great variety of sandwiches and salads. My sandwich was not completely toasted and the size is not too big. If you want to have a full meal you should order a soup, salad or dessert. For my birthday they gave me a free dessert!

Old wilted loose leaf lettuce does not stand up to the dressing. I would expect more from this place for its prices.
