Artisan Sandwiches and Salads

Our rotating assortment includes a Chicken Pesto Sandwich on Focaccia, a vegetarian Caprese Sandwich, and a Harvest Chicken Entrée Salad, to name a few. Each is carefully assembled with fresh ingredients – bread for the sandwiches is baked daily, the meats come directly from packers, and the produce is brought in from local farms!

We’ve localized our wine selection to feature some of California’s top wineries. Purchase a half bottle for $15. The Kendall Jackson Chardonnay integrates tropical flavors such as pineapple, mango, and papaya. The Ferrari-Carano Fume Blanc has aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit, lemongrass, orange blossom, and more. The Mondavi Private Label Cabernet has a sweet black cherry and dark berry fruit character, and has been called one of California’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons. The Meiomi Pinot Noir gets its fruit from the most noteworthy coastal areas in California, and has a deep yet balanced flavor that pairs well with food.
