    I’m the salad you’ve been waiting for all year. The salad you think of when you’re eating other salads. I’m back for the summer. The Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad.The taste you just can’t quit.

    A sopa de brócolis e cheddar é muito boa 😋

    The you pick two is always a good choice. Broccoli cheddar soup is amazing!! Get a side of bread instead of chips for dipping.

    The pastries look good but they are stale. Not worth the calories out the money, find a better bakery.

    The Cuban sandwich is tasty

    Try the hot chocolate, it's upgraded with chocolate marshmallows, whipped cream and caramel!

    Sounds crazy but I walk the extra block from the main Ellington Rd stretch to come here on rainy and/or cold days just for their yummy hot tomato soup. Cures what ails ya. Sweet tea is subpar, though.

    I come here for lunch often. Good food at good price.

    When eating a slice of bread, try putting butter on it for an extra treat!

    Try the new smoothies. Black cherry is my favorite, but they're all insanely delicious.

    Here is a tip- during peak times, if you are along and here for the free Internet, pls sit at a small table. I hate standing around waiting for a table for my family while you play solitaire at a 4top

    Regular salad is almost the same size as the "half salad" you get with the you pick 2....but you get a bowl of soup for $.10.....duh!

    Places to plug in are few and far between. Also the internet can be kind of slow. But the mac n cheese rocks.

    Try the Strawberry and Poppy Seed Salad (with chicken) before the end of summer!

    Gets crowded during weekend breakfast/brunch rush. Get coffee instead of cappuccino, or your food will cool off while you're waiting for your drink.
