Nothing could be simpler or faster than ordering the sandwiches here. Pick up a brown bag from the counter, mark your choices of home-made bread (go for the Jalapeno cheddar), meat (white meat chicken salad or maple glazed honey ham are favorites), cheese (go for the horseradish white cheddar), toppings (lettuce and tomatoes for example) and spreads (try the honey mustard), directly on the bag, hand it in and wait maybe two minutes at most to be called. For those who prefer crispy bread, try having it toasted. Do not miss their chocolate chip cookies, which are more chocolate chips than cookie dough.
