Slow and overpriced – 20 minute wait for an average omlette when restaurant was not busy and was adequately staffed (only order in). Also expect a lengthy wait for lunch when dining in.

Omlette served in non-styro-foam carryout container (flimsy plastic instead) which made it too hot to hold while eating with a plastic fork designed for a 2 year old.

This place at least makes an attempt at charm...which for ultra-lackluster Indianapolis counts for a little.

Comes up just shy of the status it desperately seeks, but with SUCH limited local dining choices in Indy, it seems better than it is.

Great Food, Great Staff, Great Time – We like this place a lot. You can grab lunch from the pre-made sandwiches, get coffee or a sit-dwn meal as well as catering.

The food here is really great and we especially appreciate how helpful the staff is in catering a party. They will help design a menu, put together platters of delicious food, & they deliver. The desserts are superb!

Nice neighborhood hangout – A great place to come by for breakfast or lunch, especially on the weekends when you have time to sit outside and take your time. A huge selection of sandwiches, breads, soup, salads. Their chicken salad is fresh, chunky, and yummy. They also offer a full array of beautiful bakery goods (go for the iced sugar cookies) and fresh bread. Crowded on weekends.

Delightful North Side deli that is serious about sandwiches. – The Scene
The cramped confines of this charming North Side bakery and deli are often filled with hungry diners digging into freshly made sandwiches and desserts. A sandwich board is filled with dozens of appealing choices--a spinning dessert cart loaded with sweet delights and a selection of sides can be a bit overwhelming when trying to place your order at the busy front counter.

The Food
Grilled or served cold; on a croissant or between two slices of homemade bread: Sandwich options are only limited by your imagination. The specialty sub is a cafe favorite--and for good reason, as salami, bologna and provolone cheese are covered with all the fixings and stuffed inside a soft hoagie bun. Savory salads are equally impressive; freshly cut lettuce is transformed into creative mixtures like the spicy taco salad or the veggie-friendly cauliflower salad. Live your chocolate fantasy with an oversized slice of the rich, double-layered chocolate cake.
