Try the Doc’s Choice an amazing hot turkey sandwich on a pretzel bun and the omelet bar on the weekends! It’s a great spot to hang out and do some work or to listen to live music on the weekends. Getting there: From the drive way turn right (west) on Almeria. Make a left onto 3rd Ave. Walk one block. Cross McDowell at the light. Hob Nobs is on the corner of McDowell and 3rd Ave. on the left.”
