Whether meeting at the College View Drive restaurant or the new and remarkable Market Street location in the downtown Mall, you’re bound to impress that prospective client.

A full menu of sandwiches, soups and other delightful fare is only half the attraction. Spacious, but cozy tables allow you to discuss business in a casual, but productive manner. The friendly staff is quick too a suggestion and quicker to get your order out.
