So, how did you find Cheddar Box Too?

This week, we visit Cheddar Box Too for my dining review on and in LEO Weekly. This pleasant, sunny little lunch spot in St. Matthews opened last year, sibling to the original Cheddar Box, just across the parking lot, which has been vending box lunches and desserts to go for more than 30 years.
Cheddar Box? Cheddar Box, Too 
My friend Tom has been in Louisville for a few months now, and he knows his way around pretty well. But he got a little confused when we got together for lunch the other day at Cheddar Box Too. 
Tom said his GPS wasn't offering much help, but when he wheeled into the Chenoweth Square shopping center from the east, rolled past Majid's and Paul's and then spotted my car parked right under a sign that read "Cheddar Box," he figured he was there. 
Not quite, Tom. But close. 
As the patient staff at the original Cheddar Box deli and specialty-food shop, which has been on the site since 1979, have become accustomed to explaining, Cheddar Box Too - its long-awaited sit-down eatery sibling - is right over there on the other side of the parking lot.
Or Tom might have simply followed the crowd.
