I highly recommend this little spot for lunch. I ate here two days in a row while staying in Ely for 1 week. Everything I ordered was very fresh and tasty. Down home atmosphere where obviously all the locals come too. Tempted to go back for ice cream or a milkshake as they are a soda fountain too. You will not be disappointed if you go here. Super friendly staff too.

We stopped on our way through town and were glad we did. Just got a couple of sandwiches but they bake their own bread and it was so good and light. Just perfect for a sandwich.Very clean, good service. Just a cool unusual place these days.

Intriguing advertising and off we went. Good selection of sandwiches which I ordered was excellent to include a hot fudge Sunday

Service was nice, quick and attentive . Plenty of food in each sandwich. Store dressed up in downtown Ely. Would return for seconds

While traveling, we visited this small place two years ago and knew we would stop if we came through Ely, NV again. It is the old fashion, friendly-style of drugstore luncheonette that will remind you of your youth. We ordered off the menu a #1, home made tuna salad sandwich, and #8, a turkey with fresh bacon; both are delicious. Fresh-made vanilla ice cream milkshake was made perfect. Watch for it as it is a small little place you might overlook. They have a toy store in the basement but we did not go see it. Even though it isn't fancy, I have to give it a five star based on the cleanliness of the store, quality of food and friendliness of staff.
