(map) Cute concept! The idea is that your mother has packed your lunch for you, so every order comes with a note from “Mom.” The soups, salads and sandwiches here are billed as “a little more special,” with touches like salad dressings, meat loaf and tuna salad made in-house. The atmosphere is cute as well, with a chalkboard menu, colorful tablecloths and whimsical salt-and-pepper shakers on every table.
Your lunch order arrives in a paper bag, complete with a note from “Mom.”
There are hot sandwiches, like the veggie, above, as well as grilled panini, like this ham and brie. An apricot-chile relish gave the panini a nice touch of sweet-and-heat.
The chalkboards are filled with humorous pictures and sayings from “Mom,” and every table has a different set of vintage salt and pepper shakers.
