Great sandwiches!!!! NYC quality...(maybe not Kosher)...but their pastrami is lean and ample. Really enjoyed the cool old school vibe. Hopping with lots of energy. Foods served on metal speckle ware plates. Terrific clam chowder on Friday. This is an awesome half way stop between Portland and the upper Olympic peninsula

Great service, and sandwiches are yummy. I got the sandwiches to go, and had no mayo put on sandwiches, since I was taking on plane. They were great next day

I,ve eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed with the food. It is very crowded during the lunch hour so get there early. the dining area is larger towards the back of the restaurant. A lot of good ole home cooking.

Little unassuming place right in the heart of downtown. Interior looks like a typical diner. Ordered the half tuna sandwich on jalapeño bread and half Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was nothing special but the tuna and bread were delicious! Definitely drooled over the dessert case as well! Server was extremely welcoming and friendly.

Large variety of sandwiches and excellent home made soups. Lots of govn't offices nearby so tends to be busy at noon. Also has drive through service..Right between the two one way streets on fifth.

I have had the best French dip on the 3 occasions I have visited this shop. The portions are generous and the wait staff are attentive and pleasant. The prices are very reasonable, much better than fast food places for inferior food!
