This sandwich shop is a find! It was great, made to order deli sandwiches. You can get chips and a drink as well and they have inside/outside seating. Cash only! Worth a try for lunch while in downtown San Jose, CA!

Super friendly place. When you show up they hold up a warm sandwich bread, which they make fresh. They also cure they're own meats. Every sandwich I've tried has been awesome. The sandwiches are huge so be prepared to share or go away stuffed. The indoor dining area is nice & clean but a little small. There is an adjacent... More

Freshly baked sourdough bread, pastrami, lovely condiments, what's not to like? Oh yes, the service was fast, friendly and fun!

The bread might not be for everyone because it's on the softer side. But it's fresh baked and the right amount of crunchy. All of their deli meats and cheese are top notch, and they make your sandwich incredibly fast. They're only open for a few hours during the day, and they reside inside of a business building so they... More

The sandwich absolutely rocked, but... This was my first time at this establishment, and the owner/manager was so absolutely rude and obnoxious. I went with a friend who introduced me to the place - we ordered different sandwiches, but they made the same one for both of us. When I realized the mistake, I went back inside to get the... More

What everyone says is true: the bread is amazing, fillings fresh and generous, and extremely busy. The service is superb - extremely personable and kind. Cash only.

When you see a line of people outside a sandwich shop, it can only mean one thing - exceptional food. Don't be daunted by the line, it moves very quickly. Freshly baked bread is used for the sandwiches....our bread was still warm. I had the prosciutto and provolone sandwich....and my partner had the German combo special of German bologna and... More

What makes Freshly Baked Eatery so memorable is their freshly baked warm bread. If its your first time it might be hard to find, this place is tucked by two buildings. There are tables with umbrellas in front FYI. I guess I came at lunch rush because the line was long but I was patient and the line moved fairly... More

Very glad I finally discovered this place. I'm sure this place gets crowded but we went on a sunny Friday around 130pm and there was no line (but half the tables were full of smiling customers). The bread is great. Nice and chewy, yet a firmness on the outside. I hate it when you bite into a sandwich roll and... More

You would never guess this place would be so good, unless you see the line out the door. It is located at the base of a tall building in downtown San José next to St. James park. They have home made bread (rolls) that are hot out of the oven: soft, warm and delicious. They also have their own special... More
