    Just 1 Piece of Ham for an entire sandwich? Beware of the SMOKED HAM sandwich

    If you get the spicy thai salad ask for extra dressing on the side. Great salad, but dry!

    Food is good but VERY expensive. I got a small salad and small soup and it was over $11!

    The "small salad" is as large as a meal salad anywhere else. The "large" is a giant killer.

    Turkey reuben isn't on the menu but is delicious. Recommended. Intelligensia coffee doesn't hurt either.

    try this: for dressing on salads ask for olive oil and lemon juice... not on menu, but if you ask nicely, they'll do it... makes everything taste like summer...
