We found this place online during a cross-country trip. A great find! My meatloaf sandwich was awesome. My husband loved his bacon corn chowder. The owner greeted us and takes an active interest in the diners' satisfaction. Easy parking. Lunch only Mon-Fri.

Went to this place for a cup of soup and maybe 1/2 sandwich. Very crowded at 3pm in afternoon. Looked at soup menu and it was all vegan or vegetable, really no variety. It was so crowded that it became less inviting to stay.More

We truly enjoyed our experience at this establishment. The food tastes fresh and the vibe reminded me of sitting in my grandmother's kitchen. If ever in town again, we will be back.

Thick and savory sandwiches, rich soups and interesting salads. Ask for salad dressings on the side though cause the way over dress. Not much atmosphere but the service is friendly .

They have a system that works and great selection and quality up and down the menu. If we are in Iowa City this is somewhere we always stop.

We found this restuarant in trip advisor, with the number one rating for Iowa City. The owner, husband and daughter all work in this family owned business. I spoke with the owner and mentioned all her food is delivered fresh every day.

From the water cooler with cucumber, to the homemade pies for dessert. This luncheon place that is closed by 2pm, has people waiting for the doors to open to enjoy the preservative free food.

My wife and I visited today for lunch. Both her salad and my Turkey club and broccoli and cheese soup we're excellent.
