A quick glance at the menu reveals the usual office-park offerings: wraps, burgers, sandwiches and espresso. But it's not until you actually order that you realize there is greatness in this deli. Eggs dishes, whether omelets or otherwise prepared come topped with anything from feta to gooey cheese; wraps bulge like burritos, and breakfast burritos even get pressed down, Chipotle-style, to add a bit of char on the flour tortilla. A Roma Panini is a seemingly simple creation of chicken, mushrooms and sundried tomatoes bound by cheese, but the interplay in those clich├ęd ingredients shows a care to detail: the grilled chicken is lean but still succulent; the sundried tomatoes applied judiciously, their overpowering pop of umami always accentuating, never overshadowing their peers.
