    You will never leave feeling gross. Check out the blue plate. Or grab a Vegetable and Red Pepper Hummus Wrap and a Carrot Ginger Splash! Yum.

    "Pick Two" allows you to mix and match any half-sized salad or sandwich so you get exactly what you're craving for $8.75.

    Grilled cheese and tomato soup! Avoid the lunch rush by coming before noon. It gets crowded quickly.

    Pumpkin pancakes are excellent. Looking to try banana Nutella next time.

    Don't get the butternut squash soup. It's pretty bland. There's not a single sprinkle of seasoning in this cup. I didn't know it was possible to mess this up.

    Coffee and a breakfast for (about) the price of a Starbucks? Yes, I think so.

    You should try an OTY (oatmeal-tea-yogurt+fruit) Some flavors are much better than others.
