Carlos & Company 2 N. Charles St. Hours: Open daily from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. (410)

You'll know you're in the right place when you spot the neon palm tree. It's the welcoming post at Carlos & Company, a busy little pastel-colored eatery near the corner of Charles and Baltimore streets that serves lunch standards and quick breakfasts with a touch more care than your average sub shop.

The menu includes the expected: pastas, soups, sandwiches and salads. The unexpected includes the size of the huge salads that are tossed with your choice of dressing while you wait in line; the variety of salads, including bistro, Nicoise, spinach, Caesar, garden, pasta and plain; the generous size of the sandwiches served on sourdough, wheat or rye; the assortment of fresh-baked breads, rolls, cakes, cookies and brownies; and the efficient, ready-to-serve staff.

Also on the menu are pizza, calzones, mashed potatoes, fries, stuffing, baked potatoes with a variety of toppings, and turkey platters with an assortment of "creative" toppings.

The prices are right, too, ranging from $1.99 for a small garden salad to $8.95 for a vegetarian pizza.

AIf you don't care to order your food to go, you can sit and enjoy the Southern California-inspired decor while you eat. Or if you prefer, there is free delivery. Carlos & Company also caters corporate gatherings and offers box lunches for $7.95 person.

If you can appreciate fresh salads, sandwiches and pasta dishes served quickly, you'll like the company Carlos keeps.
