Combining crab cakes and grilled cheese is genius! This was our first trip to this cute place and won’t be our last. The sandwiches are phenomenal. I could only finish half and took he other home. It was even better the next day for lunch.

We ordered the crab sandwich and it was great. A huge sandwich and could have shared. It is not a fast food place so be patient when ordering it is well worth it
