Dropped in, knew it was going to be pricey. Soup was yummy, service was fine, atmosphere lovely. Sandwich severed on stale bread with the tiniest side of apple sauce I’ve ever seen. Was hoping for a nice unique meal. Be warned, the walnut chicken salad...More

Stopped in for lunch and was greeted and seated promptly. The service was good, but the arrival of our food was on the slow side. We each had a different sandwich. Both were good, but nether the sandwich or the sides were worth returning for....More

I always get the same thing because it's hard to deviate from wonderful- side salad fresh and tasty, server attentive but not intrusive; great things to look at cards, soaps, truffles, things for your hair- always pleasant!

This was a visit to the past - a combo of pharmacy, general store, and a diner. We came here for lunch. The food was good, service excellent and atmosphere to spare. This place sells everything from fancy chocolates to luxury leather goods to tchotchkes...More

The first time I went to Model Pharmacy, to meet a friend for lunch, I couldn't believe it. Reminds me of the old-time drugstore where my granddad used to take me for a soda. Except this place has really good sandwiches, homemade deserts, retro-type merchandise...More

This is a small neighborhood restaurant situated in an upscale small drugstore/pharmacy. It is a fun and cozy place to eat. The workers were delightful and after my husband and I shared 2 different sandwiches and school was out, we came back with our 9...More
