Looking for food that was not expensive but familiar. Stumbled upon this place and was immediately welcomed by the cashier. She came out from behind the counter to explain the sandwiches on the wall. Offered the rest of the gals with me water while I ate. Victoria sandwich was delicious!

Went here as part of a walking food on foot tour. My best stop! Delicious sandwich jam packed with meat! However, best part by far was the pastel. Eat it warm and be prepared to fall in love! Exquisite does not cover it. Thanks!

Great fresh sandwiches, what more can you want. There was a good choice of fillings, and the prices were reasonable.

Wonderful sandwiches, all fresh ingredients. But the Pastel Crema was the best food I have ever put in my mouth. This shop is just west of the theater district.

This was one of our favorite places in NY. The food was great, and the owner went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and happy. The pastel was great! So great in fact, that we purchased two to go and had them as part of our breakfast the next day (and I almost never order/eat dessert.) What I... More

We went here on a tour and OMG the meatball sandwich was incredible, best I have eaten anywhere in the world. We also tried the pastel or where I come from Portuguese tarts, delicious warm custard goodness. I would recommend this shop to anyone, the owner Micheal meet our group and was so friendly and genuinely proud of the food... More

Went with a group. Most had a sandwich and said it was by good. We had a pastel. I've eaten the originals in Portugal and I've got to say these were the real deal.

This is a small place with a few tables but the sandwiches were excellent. Four of us went and we each had something different. The nice lady took her time and explained it all to us and each of us enjoyed our sandwich. Prices were reasonable for NYC. Would stop in again!

So i went here after reading a newspaper review of the place. It is just a few blocks from my work so I walked over one day during lunch. It is a small location and their menu is along their wall, in color codes, one color for meatless, one color for meat, and one color that has egg. You can... More

I had a great sandwich, good coffee and an exceptional pastel. Very friendly service. Best for take away, but quite ok to eat at one of the four tables as well. Highly recommended.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
