The food is good. I love their bread. The sandwiches are fresh and the service is pretty quick. I enjoyed my buffalo chicken sandwich. Worth catching lunch here.

Decent place for a quick bite. We picked up sandwiches here for the train ride home. Only thing was, half was def. too small to satisfy for dinner. Next time I'll ask to see the sizes before choosing. Tasty sandwich.
