    above average

    I've tried the premade sandwiches, packaged salads, bagels and muffins and have never had a problem with freshness. Even the occasional slice of cake has been fresh enough (many of these places have stale desserts). Can't say the same about the pancakes or french toast, as sometimes they precook these which is unacceptable. Weekday prices are in line with the neighborhood, but they raise the prices of certain items (definitely egg dishes, not sure what else) on the weekend.

    Desert and coffee only

    We stopped for a pick-me-up coffee and a dessert. The desserts were tastefully presented; the iced decaf coffee was very good. The decor is simple, with small tables, but not too crowded at our time spot. However, we wanted to use the bathroom before our 4-hour train ride and drive home, but we had to wait while the staff changed into their street clothes in the rest room and chatted with each other through the ajar door and cell phones. tsk. tsk.

    A wonderful dining experience

    I took my family there around the holiday. We were visiting relatives at the time. We all agreed that the service, decor and food were excellent. Even the manager was very attentive to us. I would highly recommend this dining experience to all of my friends visiting from out of town,

    Nice little place!

    The decor is not much to speak of but the service was friendly and personal and they have this Ultimate Salad thing with unlimited toppings (a few restrictions) but well worth the $$$. Check it out.

    You get what you pay for

    I went in thinking this is a reasonably priced lunch place compared to other places in the area. I was excited to get my unlimited topping-make your own pasta for the first time today and was disappointed. The penne pasta was hard, the mozzarella cheese topping was old (didn't even melt), the a la vodka sauce was watery, and all of my toppings (shrimp, broccoli, mushrooms, onions) did not taste super fresh. Overall very unsatisfied - and I'm not even a picky eater. All that for $6.99 - but it's really not a good deal after tasting it.

    Bagels not recommended

    In our office we buy a lot of bagels from a lot of places around Midtown. I just purchased one from Food Merchants. Not only was the bagel stale, the cream cheese was subpar and the price was $1.49, which they tax. All together: $1.61. Not only is it overpriced, but the price is inconvenient. Who wants to stop by for a bagel and a handfull for change every morning? At least make the with-tax price amount to $1.60. All-in-all, an awful bagel with bad cream cheese for too much money.

    A salad bargain

    Since they changed their salad bar to a flat fee I have been eating there just about everyday. It is the most reasonable place in the area for a great salad and I will continue to eat there every workday as long as the food quality and price remain the same.
