    As far as ambiance goes, Smitty's is very...quaint. It tends to look like it's closed a lot of the time, but I realized on my most recent trip (yesterday) that the window in the door is incredibly grimy because it makes it look really dark inside and..closed. I don't even know if grimy is the word I'm looking for because I don't want to insinuate that the place is dirty, it's not. Anyhow, when I first arrived the two staff members behind the counter were chatting with a man that I assume was a regular. They didn't greet me right away, but that's okay because I didn't feel they were ignoring me either-- just wrapping up the conversation. I noticed while I was perusing the options that there were lots of sandwiches that catered to veggie/pescatarian diets which automatically bumps a place up in my book. They had a veggie sandwich on a croissant with a dill spread, egg salad, tuna salad and an "ultimate" grilled cheese. I couldn't decide so when I was asked to order I asked for a recommendation between the veg on croissant or ultimate grilled cheese. The man behind the counter said the ultimate was "pretty darn good" and my friend that frequents this spot had mentioned it previously. I ordered the ultimate grilled cheese and was blown away!! I wish it was bigger because it was amazing. I think it just had cheddar cheese but was loaded with other items such as sliced apples, avocado, red onion, and tomato. I really liked how they mashed up the avocado to ensure the sandwich didn't fall apart and sliced the apples super thin. With a pickle (included), my total was slightly over $6. The sandwich was damn good though so I'd definitely return for that alone. I really like how cute this place is, it's not fancy-- small round tables are strewn throughout, lots of reading material (papers, pamphlets, fliers etc) available for those dining alone. I'm not sure if they have WiFi but I can see this being a nice alternative to Starbucks across the street for someone studying or working since there is less traffic coming in and out. I also noticed they had some really delicious looking cookies, lots of bottled Arizona and Nantucket drinks, and small servings of side salads like macaroni and pasta for those that need something extra. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't been here for years but after yesterday, I really don't know why!

    Awesome as usual...the malt is filling ant tasty. Bought a DVD for a movie that was made here..supporting the local business. Owner is knowledgeable and somoene you could probably chat it up with about local news. Place is clean and tidy...kids come here to hang out...think Arnold from Happy Days (although this laest time I went it only had a couple of people in it. I am sure everyone isnt busy 24/7)

    I've grown up in Saint Charles for about half of my life. Saint Charles is home to some good local food joints. This one is in my top favorites hands down. I visited the neat local sandwich shop after golfing one day, as my friend recommended it. I was not disappointed. I ordered a basic sandwich (you can have whatever you want on it). The bread was one of the best parts of it! The bread is provided by a local bread smith. Talk about home grown. Nevertheless the sandwich was fantastic. The decor fits the locals perfectly. So yes, I would recommend the place. See you soon smitty's!

    What a cute restaurant. I can't believe it took me this long to eat here. They run a very efficient ship. I love that. The sandwich maker's line keeps up with their very big lunch rush. There are seats inside, and also there are plenty of benches outside in downtown STC if the weather cooperates. I ordered the California turkey. It was delicious. Everything was very fresh and in perfect proportions. The avocado made this sandwich, along with the Breadsmith cracked wheat bread. My friends got 1) the ham steer and recommends it for a try 2) got a plain grilled cheese and enjoyed it and 3) she created her own grilled cheese with apple, onion, tomato and avocado, she loved it and it looked good. Every sandwich comes with a pickle. Everything tastes better when someone else makes it, Smitty's is the perfect example of this. I could make a turkey sandwich at home with mayo, guac, lettuce and tomato, but I would so much rather pay for it. It tastes much better when the professional sandwich makers at Smitty's make it.

    Get the Turkey Berry, you won't regret it! Easily the most delicious sandwich I've gotten here. My office orders from here pretty frequently; they deliver for a $2 charge and it always comes very quick. They also have soups and they've proven to be tasty :)

  • Stacy J.

    Very good food, friendly staff, a tiny bit more expensive than I was expecting for sandwiches, but they were tasty and filling. There were no problems with custom orders, and their regular menu was simple yet varied. I would come here again, perhaps not with the kids due to space constraints.

    Best sandwich I've ever eaten in my life! Highly recommend the focaccia brother sandwiches. The bread is like heaven on earth. Huge portions and nice selection of sides. They also have ice cream and giant gourmet brownies if your sweet tooth kicks in! Will definitely be coming back! Open later on Tuesdays for cruise night.

    The best thing about working in St. Charles is Smitty's. The Uncle B's sandwich (hot and toasty) is to die for. Cookies, chips and deserts are all on point. I didn't try the coleslaw (not my thing), but my coworker said she can't go there and not get it. Even the iced coffee was good! Specials everyday, which were all amazing. I especially love the freshness and taste of their bread - they get it from a local breadsmith in St. Charles. Sadly I don't work in St. Charles anymore, and it is quite a ways from my house, so I don't eat it as often as I would like. However, Smitty's still haunts me cause it's so good, if only I could drive there on my lunch now..

    Amazingly, today was our first time here and what a plesant surprise. The line was long, but went very fast. The bread is fresh from Breadsmith and IMHO a sandwich is only as good as its bread - the cracked wheat we had was fantastic! We both split the turkey berry and the tuna fish sandwiches (substituting out the croissant). I have to say the tuna was fine but not exceptional - though I personally prefer my bread toasted for tuna fish and I usually like a little crunch which was missing. The turkey berry was absolutely fantastic! I will be returning for this sandwich, especially since it is so convenient to grab and enjoy a nice picnic along the river. Excellent proportion between all the ingredients - including the bread. The staff was very friendly and efficient and we were lucky to get the table in the window. This will now be one of my go to spots.

    A beautiful Saturday in St Charles so we decided to stop in Smittys for sandwiches. A bit of a line but after waiting ten minutes the counter service was friendly and quick. We had a Turkey berry and tuna sandwich which were both great. The fresh locally baked bread was excellent. Price with chips and drinks was under $20. We will be back

    Stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The up sides were; wasn't too busy, lots of seating, fast service and very casual. Plus they were showing college football on the one TV. The menu offers a wide variety of sandwiches from grilled to cold to Panini's. They also have a lot of different soda selections in bottles, like flavored cream soda and root beer. I ordered a panini that was "muffalatta" style and it was good. The bread smith focaccia was flaky and delicious , but not firm enough to hold all the sandwich had so it got kind of digger toward the end. But it was still good. My boyfriend ordered the California Turkey which was the main reason for my three star review. It tasted like a plain turkey sandwich you could make at home, the bread was soft and ingredients fresh but just not Great like we expected. Another disappointing factor that contributed to the 3 starts is the lack of hot peppers and hot sauce, hey only had jalapeños and that's disappointing for a sandwich place. We will probably be back and try something else, but for a sandwich lover like me it wasn't THAT impressive like the earlier reviews state.

    I am a huge fan of there turkey berry!!! The only sandwich I've really only eaten there Cuz it's my fave. I am dying for there cranberry mayo recipe! I also love how thinly sliced the red onions are totally makes the sandwich as well as that cranberry mayo!

    Just finished the second sandwich I have had the pleasure of eating at Smitty's. I call it a pleasure, because the taste of their sandwiches makes it pleasurable to eat them. I will go so far as to say the whole experience of eating at this deli is pleasurable, from the staff to the entire atmosphere of this corner deli. If you are ever in the St. Charles area, and are hungry, I highly recommend stopping by this gem.

    I'm a NY transplant. I grew up with a deli just about everywhere you went. You could even walk in to some gas stations and get a fresh made sandwich. Well, I've lived in the Midwest for about 12 years and JUST found this place. The staff here is awesome, the ham sandwich I had was great and it's nice that they use local bread. Since I'm a New Yorker, I wasn't impressed with the apples they had, but at least they weren't red delicious. The only thing I would ask for to be different would be the availability of cucumber slices to put on sandwiches.

  • Kristina U.

    I tried this place for lunch one day; the inside it cozy, the staff is friendly and the selection is great. I ordered the egg salad sandwich and was not disappointed; it gave me awful heartburn later but whatever. I also got the four bean salad as a side, it was pretty good but the total was a bit much; although to be fair everything is fresh and seems to be homemade so they deserve four stars.

  • Andy M.

    Over priced sandwiches and this place is nothing too special except the look and old building it is located. The smoothies are way over priced and the two sandwiches I had were nothing I couldn't make at home myself. Not much of a large menu but I guess it is better to have is place than an empty store front.

  • Elise K.

    How anyone could be dissapointed by this place is beyond me. In a world (okay in the Tri-cities) where the only places you can find a "real" sandwich are Panera and Corner Bakery (freshly made with 800 heavy greasy calories), Smitty's should practically be sainted. Unless you make your own sandwiches at home, there is no other place to have a fresh, simple sandwich. That said, there are options on the menu at Smitty's that are catered to the "million-ingredient' people, and sometimes that really does make a delicious sandwich. But what I love most is that they let you make it your own way! You can have one of their pre-determined sandwiches, the Annika, the Turkey Berry, or the Groucho (a grilled panini for my meat lovin' man) are all good choices. Breads are soft, fresh and make you remember what real food tastes like. Its too bad I don't work downtown STC because this would be the "oh DARN I forgot to make my lunch today" spot that would make me NOT want to make my lunch at home anymore.

    I don't know why it took me so long to try Smitty's, but now that I have, I've been craving it and can't wait to go back! I loved the Dill-icious Veggie sandwich on a croissant. Talk about a delicious sandwich. It was fantastic! Also, I don't eat meat but my coworker was raving about how the turkey sandwich he got was the freshest, best turkey he's ever had. They close at 5, which means it's more of a lunch option (for those of us who work until 5), but I will definitely be going back soon!

  • Aletta J.

    Great place for a sandwich and a pickle in the Fox Valley area but that's where it ends. No chips or a drink for $7.95. The bread and meat is super fresh (bacon doesn't come in rounds...) and lettuce tomato to boot. I like a real piece of lettuce but they serve shredded. However, it's easier to get a sandwich here than at Townhouse books up the street (they are always busy). I'd love it if they offered a half-sandwich only because they're pretty sizeable.

  • Sarah S.

    LOVE THIS PLACE!!! This is a cute little sandwich shop in downtown St. Charles. They make fresh, gourmet sandwiches to order which are absolutely delicious. They use fresh baked bread from a local bakery, Breadsmith. My favorite sandwiches are the Turkey Berry and the California Turkey. They also have delicious potato salad, very fresh!

  • Chrissy W.

    Since I work across the street, I enjoy my visits to this quaint little sandwich shop with some tasty options. The homemade soups that I've had (Broccoli and cheddar-YUM and French onion-I wish there was cheese on top) were pretty delightful. The sandwiches on the Breadsmith bread are made to order for customer satisfaction. I once made the mistake of forgetting to off the mayo--bleck. The Cali Club (sans mayo) is awesome. The dill veggie croissant is pretty good. I had the traditional sub sandwich yesterday for lunch and man-o-man was the inside good. The bread, unfortunately was a little less than fresh :( This was my first occurrence with this issue, and it's likely not a regular one. But for a while, I'll be steering away from the french roll. The fresh baked cookies are full of cookie-monster-loving happiness. The convenience. The tastiness. The $5.95 soup and half sandwich. I'll be back.

  • Lindsay B.

    The food at Smitty's is simple, fresh, and delicious. Every time I go in the employees are friendly and seem happy I am there. I am slowly working through all of the sandwiches, but each has been delicious, made even better by the fresh baked bread from Breadsmith. If you have room, the cookies are absolutely fantastic! An affordable lunch stop with a nice central location in STC.

    Suggested to me by a local Police officer. The sandwich wa extremely good. The fresh focaci bread really made the sandwich. Very friendly staff. Will definately be back tomorrow for lunch as well!

    The sandwiches here are AWESOME! It's an amazing little concept...fresh ingredients and fresh bread. Simple and yummy!! I just wish that they'd clean the place. It's littered with all kinds of cute memorabilia, but the dust on everything is so thick! The place where the sandwiches are made looks clean enough though. The down side is that their panini machine looks as though it hasn't been cleaned since the place opened, and it smokes up the place. There's a fog hanging in the air because of it, and when you leave you smell like burnt Smitty's. But your tummy is happy!

  • Renee S.

    The menu looks a little "adult" oriented, however they will cater the youngsters if you ask. They use Breadsmith bread (made locally) which I like. Today I got a traditional Italian sub, which was good as expected. Chicken Tortellini soup was also good. Although I did not try them, the brownies and cookies looked very yummy Generous portions. Friendly staff. Good quality product. Locally owned. WINNER WINNER WINNER WINNER. Yay! I really like it here :)

    Smitty's is a local favorite of mine. I love the sourdough bread they get fresh from Breadsmith everyday. During lunchtime it's busy but they are really quick and I've never had a problem getting a table when needed. The sandwiches are super fresh, as is their soup and cookies.

  • Beth B.

    Love love love Smittys! Great to have a little neighborhood deli sandwich place in my own town! For something warm nothing beats The Zeppo. For cold nothing beats the Turkey Berry... Even my picky kids are obsessed with that one. They always have a "special" sandwich and their soups are great. Love the selection of pasta salads and baked goods.... The apple caramel cookies are to die for!! The family who owns and runs it are super friendly and we just love coming in here for a great lunch!!

    A great place for an afternoon lunch, truly a place to experience while in Downtown St Charles. Their grilled cheese with apple and guacamole is amazing, the Groucho sandwich is another one of my favorites, and their soup is ALWAYS good!

  • Sofia D.

    I love this little sandwich shop. I pinkie swear that this is one of the best (i.e. most fresh, satisfying, mouth-watering) turkey sandwiches I've had in my entire 22 years of existence on planet earth. This place is that freaking good. The two slices you'll be feasting on are from Breadsmith, the local bread shop right down the street. You can thank them for making your sammie taste super fresh every flippin time you bite into one of 'em (for me, it's always the turkeyberry). Try their veggie beef stew, it's really good. Support small business!

    Just finished miniature golfing and decided to google a sandwich shop nearby for lunch. Good thing Smitty's appeared. I asked for the Turkey Berry which was on white soft bread that allowed the flavors of the turkey, swiss cheese, and cranberry to come through. YUMMY! My hubby bought the Groucho and in this case the focaccia bread really added to the flavor of the meat and dressing. YUMMY! Chips and drink do need to be bought so expect to spend about $10 each, but overall in flavor and fresh ingredients, it beats any corporate sandwich shop.

    Hi all. I found this jewel from a co worker. We both love their BBQ pork sandwich on Wednesdays, and Thursday's if there is any left. They have a a great fresh menu including a turkey berry that has great flavor. As for sides, they have some great macaroni or pasta salads. Great place with simple decore and easy to get to. Hope you enjoy.

    Great option for lunch in St Charles. Rueben was great and my fiance really likes the Turkey Berry. We always find fresh ingredients, great service, and reasonable prices here.

    We've eaten here several times and enjoyed it each time. It's mainly a local sandwich shop. They have early hours, we usually call to see if they are open. There is an easily accessible parking garage on the east side. Bathrooms have been clean when we were there, love the dogs playing poker!

    Great little sandwich shop. After a disastrous stop at a hole in the wall in another town I was a bit leery walking in to Smittys. One look at the hand written menu board and I started to get a good feeling. Locally made breads with fresh ingredients! My sandwich was an Italian type combo and came on locally made focaccia. Delicious. My wife had a turkey sandwich and that was tasty as well. Unfortunately they were out of their home made soups. If they are anywhere near as good as the sammies then there's a reason they sold out. The same can probably be said about their hand made shakes, bet they're great. Cute room with cool memorabilia hanging on the walls. Nice lady behind the counter. We look forward to going back.

    My fiance and I live close to Smitty's, so we have walked over there twice now for lunch. It is delicious every time. We'll be going back tonight with my future sister-in-law and her boyfriend. I love that they use breadsmith bread because I know they have good quality breads there, however, I'm gluten intolerant. What's awesome, is that they make any sandwich into a salad and charge you the sandwich price which is cheaper than a salad, and the portions are generous. I love their tuna salad. They have fresh diced apples in it that makes it taste super fresh! Each sandwich is served with a pickle spear. Last time we went a few weeks ago, my honey ordered a chocolate shake. It was to-die-for! It is one of those little sandwich shops you wouldn't think to go into when there are a million pubs surrounding it to eat at. But trust me, this is fresher and much tastier than any bar food you'll come across. Highly recommend this place!

I am slowly working through all of the sandwiches, but each has been delicious, made even better by the fresh baked bread from Breadsmith. If you have room, the cookies are absolutely fantastic! An affordable lunch stop with a nice central location in STC.

    The sandwiches here are AWESOME! It's an amazing little concept...fresh ingredients and fresh bread. Simple and yummy!! I just wish that they'd clean the place. It's littered with all kinds of cute memorabilia, but the dust on everything is so thick! The place where the sandwiches are made looks clean enough though. The down side is that their panini machine looks as though it hasn't been cleaned since the place opened, and it smokes up the place. There's a fog hanging in the air because of it, and when you leave you smell like burnt Smitty's. But your tummy is happy!

    The menu looks a little "adult" oriented, however they will cater the youngsters if you ask. They use Breadsmith bread (made locally) which I like. Today I got a traditional Italian sub, which was good as expected. Chicken Tortellini soup was also good. Although I did not try them, the brownies and cookies looked very yummy Generous portions. Friendly staff. Good quality product. Locally owned. WINNER WINNER WINNER WINNER. Yay! I really like it here :)

    Smitty's is a local favorite of mine. I love the sourdough bread they get fresh from Breadsmith everyday. During lunchtime it's busy but they are really quick and I've never had a problem getting a table when needed. The sandwiches are super fresh, as is their soup and cookies.

    Great option for lunch in St Charles. Rueben was great and my fiance really likes the Turkey Berry. We always find fresh ingredients, great service, and reasonable prices here. This restaurant has a quaint and cozy feel to it. I also like that this is a local business and am glad to keep supporting it.

    We've eaten here several times and enjoyed it each time. It's mainly a local sandwich shop. They have early hours, we usually call to see if they are open. There is an easily accessible parking garage on the east side. Bathrooms have been clean when we were there, love the dogs playing poker!

    Great little sandwich shop. After a disastrous stop at a hole in the wall in another town I was a bit leery walking in to Smittys. One look at the hand written menu board and I started to get a good feeling. Locally made breads with fresh ingredients! My sandwich was an Italian type combo and came on locally made focaccia. Delicious. My wife had a turkey sandwich and that was tasty as well. Unfortunately they were out of their home made soups. If they are anywhere near as good as the sammies then there's a reason they sold out. The same can probably be said about their hand made shakes, bet they're great. Cute room with cool memorabilia hanging on the walls. Nice lady behind the counter. We look forward to going back.

    Downtown St. Charles by the river. Small local place with some good sandwiches. From the bread to the condiments you can taste the quality. I'm a fan.

    My fiance and I live close to Smitty's, so we have walked over there twice now for lunch. It is delicious every time. We'll be going back tonight with my future sister-in-law and her boyfriend. I love that they use breadsmith bread because I know they have good quality breads there, however, I'm gluten intolerant. What's awesome, is that they make any sandwich into a salad and charge you the sandwich price which is cheaper than a salad, and the portions are generous. I love their tuna salad. They have fresh diced apples in it that makes it taste super fresh! Each sandwich is served with a pickle spear. Last time we went a few weeks ago, my honey ordered a chocolate shake. It was to-die-for! It is one of those little sandwich shops you wouldn't think to go into when there are a million pubs surrounding it to eat at. But trust me, this is fresher and much tastier than any bar food you'll come across. Highly recommend this place!

    Just finished miniature golfing and decided to google a sandwich shop nearby for lunch. Good thing Smitty's appeared. I asked for the Turkey Berry which was on white soft bread that allowed the flavors of the turkey, swiss cheese, and cranberry to come through. YUMMY! My hubby bought the Groucho and in this case the focaccia bread really added to the flavor of the meat and dressing. YUMMY! Chips and drink do need to be bought so expect to spend about $10 each, but overall in flavor and fresh ingredients, it beats any corporate sandwich shop.

    Hi all. I found this jewel from a co worker. We both love their BBQ pork sandwich on Wednesdays, and Thursday's if there is any left. They have a a great fresh menu including a turkey berry that has great flavor. As for sides, they have some great macaroni or pasta salads. Great place with simple decore and easy to get to. Hope you enjoy.

    How anyone could be dissapointed by this place is beyond me. In a world (okay in the Tri-cities) where the only places you can find a "real" sandwich are Panera and Corner Bakery (freshly made with 800 heavy greasy calories), Smitty's should practically be sainted. Unless you make your own sandwiches at home, there is no other place to have a fresh, simple sandwich. That said, there are options on the menu at Smitty's that are catered to the "million-ingredient' people, and sometimes that really does make a delicious sandwich. But what I love most is that they let you make it your own way! You can have one of their pre-determined sandwiches, the Annika, the Turkey Berry, or the Groucho (a grilled panini for my meat lovin' man) are all good choices. Breads are soft, fresh and make you remember what real food tastes like. Its too bad I don't work downtown STC because this would be the "oh DARN I forgot to make my lunch today" spot that would make me NOT want to make my lunch at home anymore.

    I don't know why it took me so long to try Smitty's, but now that I have, I've been craving it and can't wait to go back! I loved the Dill-icious Veggie sandwich on a croissant. Talk about a delicious sandwich. It was fantastic! Also, I don't eat meat but my coworker was raving about how the turkey sandwich he got was the freshest, best turkey he's ever had. They close at 5, which means it's more of a lunch option (for those of us who work until 5), but I will definitely be going back soon!

    Great place for a sandwich and a pickle in the Fox Valley area but that's where it ends. No chips or a drink for $7.95. The bread and meat is super fresh (bacon doesn't come in rounds...) and lettuce tomato to boot. I like a real piece of lettuce but they serve shredded. However, it's easier to get a sandwich here than at Townhouse books up the street (they are always busy). I'd love it if they offered a half-sandwich only because they're pretty sizeable.

    LOVE THIS PLACE!!! This is a cute little sandwich shop in downtown St. Charles. They make fresh, gourmet sandwiches to order which are absolutely delicious. They use fresh baked bread from a local bakery, Breadsmith. My favorite sandwiches are the Turkey Berry and the California Turkey. They also have delicious potato salad, very fresh!

    Love love love Smittys! Great to have a little neighborhood deli sandwich place in my own town! For something warm nothing beats The Zeppo. For cold nothing beats the Turkey Berry... Even my picky kids are obsessed with that one. They always have a "special" sandwich and their soups are great. Love the selection of pasta salads and baked goods.... The apple caramel cookies are to die for!! The family who owns and runs it are super friendly and we just love coming in here for a great lunch!!

    A great place for an afternoon lunch, truly a place to experience while in Downtown St Charles. Their grilled cheese with apple and guacamole is amazing, the Groucho sandwich is another one of my favorites, and their soup is ALWAYS good!

    As far as ambiance goes, Smitty's is very...quaint. It tends to look like it's closed a lot of the time, but I realized on my most recent trip (yesterday) that the window in the door is incredibly grimy because it makes it look really dark inside and..closed. I don't even know if grimy is the word I'm looking for because I don't want to insinuate that the place is dirty, it's not. Anyhow, when I first arrived the two staff members behind the counter were chatting with a man that I assume was a regular. They didn't greet me right away, but that's okay because I didn't feel they were ignoring me either-- just wrapping up the conversation. I noticed while I was perusing the options that there were lots of sandwiches that catered to veggie/pescatarian diets which automatically bumps a place up in my book. They had a veggie sandwich on a croissant with a dill spread, egg salad, tuna salad and an "ultimate" grilled cheese. I couldn't decide so when I was asked to order I asked for a recommendation between the veg on croissant or ultimate grilled cheese. The man behind the counter said the ultimate was "pretty darn good" and my friend that frequents this spot had mentioned it previously. I ordered the ultimate grilled cheese and was blown away!! I wish it was bigger because it was amazing. I think it just had cheddar cheese but was loaded with other items such as sliced apples, avocado, red onion, and tomato. I really liked how they mashed up the avocado to ensure the sandwich didn't fall apart and sliced the apples super thin. With a pickle (included), my total was slightly over $6. The sandwich was damn good though so I'd definitely return for that alone. I really like how cute this place is, it's not fancy-- small round tables are strewn throughout, lots of reading material (papers, pamphlets, fliers etc) available for those dining alone. I'm not sure if they have WiFi but I can see this being a nice alternative to Starbucks across the street for someone studying or working since there is less traffic coming in and out. I also noticed they had some really delicious looking cookies, lots of bottled Arizona and Nantucket drinks, and small servings of side salads like macaroni and pasta for those that need something extra. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised. I haven't been here for years but after yesterday, I really don't know why!

    Awesome as usual...the malt is filling ant tasty. Bought a DVD for a movie that was made here..supporting the local business. Owner is knowledgeable and somoene you could probably chat it up with about local news. Place is clean and tidy...kids come here to hang out...think Arnold from Happy Days (although this laest time I went it only had a couple of people in it. I am sure everyone isnt busy 24/7)

    I love this little sandwich shop. I pinkie swear that this is one of the best (i.e. most fresh, satisfying, mouth-watering) turkey sandwiches I've had in my entire 22 years of existence on planet earth. This place is that freaking good. The two slices you'll be feasting on are from Breadsmith, the local bread shop right down the street. You can thank them for making your sammie taste super fresh every flippin time you bite into one of 'em (for me, it's always the turkeyberry). Try their veggie beef stew, it's really good. Support small business!
