We appreciate reservations because that lets us know how much food to prepare each week.  If you are in a hurry, you can also pre-order your lunch so that we have it ready upon your arrival.  This is especially useful for teachers in a hurry on lunch break.  We will also deliver within the Central Campus/Academy buildings!
