Not your normal fast food. Great selection of soups including some for those who are Vegan. Walk in the back for soup, salad and or sandwiches. The front is a full meal caterer. We ate in the back with my partner ordering a full salad and a cup of soup. I had a small but filling Italian Hoagie type sandwich... More

This is not high end but the soup is hot and yummy and a quick, reasonably healthy thing to eat if you're in a hurry and don't need somewhere glamorous.

Wonderful "home" cooking. Soups are home made, quite imaginative, salads and sandwiches are pricey however, the portion sizes are large.

Went for Lunch and the Chowder and Lobster Bisque was hot and Delicious.The Roll was fresh had a great Crisp to it and soft in the middle. Only item missing was a piece of butter for the roll. The place was mobbed with people which tells me it is popular place to go

One of the Best family restaurants in Newton. We go there occasionally. Different soups everyday besides nice sandwiches. Armenian cracked wheat sandwich is too die for, but they have not served for a while...

Soup. Salads. Sandwich. Simple menu items, but enough to choose from. Located on a busy stretch of retail shops, this is a convenient place to run in for a take-out order or have a quick light bite with a friend or family member. Ample parking in the lot right next door. Ample choices. Vegetarian selections. Wouldn't make a trip there... More

Great for lunch. Service was okay but the food more than made up for it. Even the side items were delicious. Highly recommend.
