What a great place! I saw the reviews on Yelp and had to stop by. The food was great and the employees were all very nice. I was surprised by the food quality. The salad, soup, and panini were fresh. I couldn't have asked for a better soup and sandwich restaurant. The inside of the restaurant has a lot of character. This place is worth stopping by. Keep up the the charm ladies, you're part of the experience!

The meatloaf sandwich I had was fantastic. The service was very friendly and knew how to help my partner who can't eat dairy. Prices were reasonable and preparation was quick. Definitely recommended if you're driving by.

The broccoli crunch was so thick with mayo it reminded me of broccoli soup. Chicken sandwich was just average. The two items were $17. Doubt I visit here again unless it's for a dessert which looked better

Hands down, Joy and her staff have made it to the top of the best eats list in Chehalis/Centralia. An outstanding menu that is always fresh and well worth the wait. Kudos to everyone at Joys "Once Upon a Thyme"

Amazing food and atmosphere. Caring and attentive staff. Vegan friendly. Also includes a small store selling specialty food items, teas, and kitchenware. Get there early before the day's food specials sell out!!

Always a delightful and delicious experience! Diverse and creative dishes, and many healthful choices. Everything is super fresh, and Joy and her team are always so cheerful and kind. There is always something special to discover in the gift area too. They even deliver with five or more on the order, so co-workers can treat themselves to Joy's now too! Cozy atmosphere, beautiful presentation and everything on the from soups, to salads, sandwiches to desserts is superb.

My girlfriend and I had the french dip and both agreed it was the best we have had! We had carrot cake and bread pudding for dessert and we were NOT disappointed! We will be going back to try more items of the menu. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was very nice.

Cute place, great to have a place that serves vegan food. But when someone orders a vegan sandwich, make sure its vegan cheese, and maybe make a gluten free option with the vegan sandwich. It tasted devine, but vegan cheese doesn't melt like the cheese on my sandwich, and after asking again, you were unsure, well it was cheese.

You must go here and experience the magic that is produced in this quaint, sweet, homey little cafe. It's counter ordering, and the staff is very knowledgeable and efficient. It was our first time there, so we asked a ton of questions. We were met with genuine warmth, and had a lovely experience. Did I mention that the food is delicious? This will be one of my new regular favorites!

WOW! This is the best sandwich I've had from a restaurant in a long time. Roasted chicken with cilantro pesto, jack cheese, chipotle mayo and jalapeños. All on a delicious Dutch crunch bread. The chicken was so delicious! The must've roasted and sliced it on house. Well done! Oh, and service was amazing and the place is super cute.

If your looking for a nook in the wall place for lunch, look no farther! This cozy little restaurant holds a wonderfully whimsical atmosphere. Not to mention the food is Absolutely amazing! Any time we're in the area we stop for some lunch! I would recommend the Ruben! They have quite the spread of soups and sandwiches to pick from. And when you need a sweet treat; they have the BEST Carrot Cake you will ever find, and the Raspberry tart is heaven! I could never rave enough about this place! An absolute hidden treasure. They can get quite busy around the lunch time. However you wont be disappointed.

We went here while visiting my family for Christmas. Looked for the best rated breakfast/lunch place we could find, this place showed up. Was great for young kids. The food was pretty good. I had the French dip but felt it wasn’t very flavorful. The kids food was good and the sandwich my wife got was also good. Staff was friendly
