Everything here is amazing. The sandwiches, the smoothies, the cakes—you really can't go wrong with anything off of the menu. The potato balls are divine. The lines can get pretty rough—especially if you manage to get stuck behind the seemingly ubiquitous post-practice kids sports teams—but the snappy service keeps them moving.
