This is a popular cafe so standing in line is usually the case. My second visit here too while in Seattle/Ballard area. The large sandwiches are worth the wait - freshly made upon ordering. I had The Dybwad: Roast Beef, Turkey, Provolone, Cheddar, Lettuce, Mayo,...More

We got the raging cajun and the mantooth. The raging cajun (served hot) was the best sandwich I have had in a REALLY long time. It was large (took half home). The mantooth (served cold) was an Italian dream...thick stack of Italian meats.

This is not your average sandwich shop and full of lots of fun sandwiches, many with a little spice. The most popular one is the Rajun Cajun and it is worth repeating many times! Expect a line as this is very popular around lunch time...More

If you want a great sandwich this is your place. Full of flavor and delish...! I don't ever eat in, usually to go order, but you do want to eat in you can but it is not a large place.

Stopped here after visiting the Chittenden Locks. The place was certainly crowded and when I saw $8.50 for a Tuna Sandwich I was somewhat disappointed. My wife and I decided to split the sandwich and a large bowl of the soup of the day, a...More
