    It is a casual place and samdwiches are cheap. Let me know what u think. EGP residents need to support local businesses. There is alot of lip service but very few take action.

  • ^^^^ agree 100 % same with HP. We need to support our local businesses. I'm a huge advocate of speak with you $. We should try to organize angryblock meet ups we could rotate the meetibgs at different local businesses!

    Put a face to the moniker and support local business. Win win.
