This walk-up cafe is a local foodie gem. They have a great menu with daily specials. We get it to go for lunch all the time. The key is to call in your order ahead of time and pick it up. I don't like lines and they always have lines unless you're there to pick up an order, then just head straight up to the counter and let them know you're there for a pick up order.

Great for sandwiches/ Lunch. They take forever to make the sandwiches so I like to call ahead and pick it up. The staff and owner are really nice, and they take their time making the sandwiches.
