    Sample stop! Near the soups & mac & cheese, grab a tiny plastic cup/bowl and pour yourself a sample! They keep the cups near the bread. I love stopping by for mac & cheese, amazing!

    The Caprese (new! improved recipe!) is a disappointment. Avoid. Actually, avoid this place entirely. There are plenty of other places to get better sandwiches nearby.

    My favorite treat are the cheesecake brownies. They're best during the day and into the afternoon before they start getting stale.

    The egg white and cheese bagel is a little nasty. Overall, breakfast is overpriced. The cookies are still awesome though.

    Best chocolate croissant ever! Not so sweet, deep chocolate flavor and nice flaky crust.

    Love the morning breakfast wasabi smoked salmon sandwich. Try it on a cheese bagel.

    Don't get the Thai Peanut Chicken Wrap - half my wrap was just lettuce and 1 slice of tomato

    Make sure you hand your order slip to the staff...they threw mine away because I just left it on top of the case.

    Exttremly over priced. Small portions. Sandwiches have a lot of bread but little meat

    Accidentally spilled my mocha cappuccino and didn't hesitate to make me a brand new one. At 9am on a Monday!
