One of my favourite breakfast spots in town! Everything is fresh and cooked to perfection! They're bagels are awesome! But their desserts and cookies are the stars of the show! You have to try the peanut butter Reese's cup cookies!!!

Incredible food and service. Any questions ask Tami. She makes many of the deserts including some incredible bread pudding. Huge portions that are affordably priced.

From their superb split pea soup to the Tribeca Cheese Sandwich, the food is Fantastic!

ROBBY NELMS - Wilmington Star News

French dip and onion rings phenomenal, so is the dipping sauce for the rings. Oh and fresh brewed sweet tea is always a good thing to have. Best potato salad! And they nailed the New York feeling. I’ve been to many New York delis and can’t even tell that I’m still in North Carolina when I went inside.

Wow! Catered Thanksgiving Dinner for 10 from S&L and boy did I pick the right place. Dinner included sliced roasted turkey, trays of mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green beans, dressing, and rolls. Everything was well done and delicious.
