  • Had the Italian Hoagie. The bun was partially stale. Asking for sweet peppers resulted in roasted red peppers, and the taste was not very good. Definitely would not recommend this place.
  • My first time was a great time, and I look forward to having lunch here again, when I return to Center City.
