  • It's a laundromat, but don't let that deter you from visiting! The mac and cheese, tomato soup, and Nutella custard were out of this world.
  • Really good and healthy food and the prices are absolute fair, I love it!
  • Really amazing and unique caprese sandwich! The basil limeade is delicious as well!
  • The basil limeade is to die for
  • I loved the grilled cheese and soup. I got fontina and havarti cheese on their suggestion and it was amazing. The potato cheddar soup was perfect for dipping. The basil limeade is great too.
  • Grab a panini but be sure to leave room for the custard (dolce chai and Nutella smores are two of my favorite)
  • Curry sandwich wins! Funky cookie flavors win! Vanilla lemonade meh.
