Feels like a diner, but specializes in sandwiches and soups. Plus some nice pasties and pies for dessert. Worth a visit

The place I work for recently had someone grab 5th Ave for everyone. My ham sandwich was pretty good. Excellent bread, stacked with meat. I'd have liked as little more lettuce and a slice of tomato. But I would eat there again in a heartbeat....More

This place is the very best place for soup and sandwich lunches. The jalapeno bread that they make is perfection. The cheddar and broccoli soup is seriously delicious. If you go there you won't be disappointed.

I have eaten here many times...the sandwiches are amazing, made on artisan breads. I usually get the BLT on Jalapeño bread. Bacon is thick cut and delicious. I have also had the Cobb salad, very good and filling!

I would hate to give an incorrect answer so I would suggest simply asking the restaurant. I think they do have alternative choices.
