Soup and sandwich - how can you miss with variations of the basic lunch menu? They're growing at a meaured, judicius pace, expanding their bakery line [not getting exotic], and the customers do the policing [you and your laptop don't get to spend all morning on a cup of coffee - patrons will "pull-yer-plug"]. Good prospects.

Are you serious, pull your plug (ie tell you to leave)? We do not have a store in our town but I am a happy stock owner

Sorry you don`t. PNRAs a good place, What you do not have - as in SBUX or CBOU - is a lot of the laptoppers hanging around. On several occasions, I've seen folks ask them to move so they could take a table being used by someone who has been just sucking th Wi-Fi without making a purchase after coffee #1. Did not intend to give offense, Terry, but I think it's rude when tables are filling up to hang around without buying food or more coffee. Regards.
