A little too messy for me. I think perhaps their focus is on catering rather than retail. Specials board is hard to read- too high on the wall. Coffee area messy, ordering counter messy. Not warm and welcoming. I was the only one there and ordered a sandwich and it came on bread other than what I had ordered. On another occasion I was with 3 other ladies and some of our orders were other than what we had ordered and the specials board was too high for a couple of the elderly ladies to see. They asked that we not go there again. Both times the counter person was cordial but not a service orientated person- very distracted with other activity of other people.

From Our Editors

Shawn Shay grew up on the East Coast, feasting upon that region’s sandwiches, which rely heavily on meatballs, steak, and other meats. His future wife, Wendy, was enjoying California-style sandwiches, sprinkled with emerald fistfuls of veggies. In Shay’s Café, the two now combine their culinary passions beneath the eatery’s blue and gold walls, which glow in the natural light from floor-to-ceiling front windows. The light pierces the steam that rises from soups wrought from adventurous ingredients such as kaffir lime leaves, leeks, and fresh asparagus. The menu divides signature sandwiches by coast, with Eastern favorites including philly cheese and Western options laden with pesto, brie, and grilled salmon. Glasses of beer and wine form toasts, plinking occasionally like a xylophone player with only one mallet.
