Took the kids after a trip to the MOST. Thought they would enjoy a more casual place. It looks like a 50’s malt shop, which was very cute. Food was very good and we had an enjoyable time. We would return!

Stopped in for lunch, very friendly staff. Tried the Oreo shake - sooo good and really enough for 2 people! Food was good! Would recommend to someone visiting Armory Square. Minor complaint - fork was dirty, didn’t need my silverware so didn’t bother complaining.

There is a great selection of sandwiches, breakfast food and malts. They are great about making substitutions if necessary and the food comes out pretty fast. College kids love this for the price, convenience and comfort food.
