I had lunch here a few days ago and I still remember the pesto on the lamb sandwich. The service is speedy, the food is good, and they take credit cards. I think it was $8-9 for a unique flavor profile I've never had before....More

Good place to get a sandwich to go to take back to the office or to a park. They are big and somewhat unique. Very popular spot.

Hot corned beef sandwich is phenomenal! Need I say more? You simply stand in line and order, and they hand you your freshly made sandwich in minutes. Its totally worth the wait.

This is a to-go spot popular with office workers downtown. The menu changes each day and is rather inventive, quality very high. Service is fast, but you have to take it away.

It's a popular place, usually with long lines. I was meeting with a client nearby and needed to grab some sandwiches for the group. There were two people behind the counter helping customers, a young woman and a man. The woman was polite and helpful....More

Large, very tasty sandwiches! For smaller guys or ladies, their sandwich might be good for two. Worth trying out more than once, definitely a great choice for a quick tasty lunch downtown.

South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated
vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs
and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to
find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter
for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able
to do more than just business - museums, top quality
restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call
this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized
