The Picnic Basket was established in 1980 as a sandwich shop with a ?down home? atmosphere. It began as a place where folks could gather to discuss the day?s happenings over a cup of coffee and a delicious dessert, or where friends could go for a quick casual, yet delicious and nutritious lunch. Over the years the menu selection has grown. It includes soups, grilled specials, delicious desserts, a wide and constantly expanding selection of unique salads and of course, our huge delicious sandwiches we have become known for?the most popular of which is the #4 and the ?Sunken Sub?.
