    If you made it here for a quick fast lunch you are in for lots of options; sushi, korean, pasta station, salad - this place has it all. Try the ramen if its cold!

    For $8.95 (+tax), you can have a delicious lunch for champions: SPICY CHICKEN! Order across from the salad bar. (P.s. It's not that spicy. More like medium. Medium spicy chicken)..

    Standing at the salad line reading this? Here's the Denny Special™: grilled chicken, avocado, mozzarella balls, diced tomatoes, peppers, egg white, oil & vinegar, salt & pepper. #YoureWelcome

    PRO TIP: There is a back entrance on Mercer that lets you avoid the Broadway pedestrian traffic and skip the slow folks getting into the depths of Cafe Duke!

    Spinach salad with 6 ingredients is a steal at $7. I go breaded chicken, egg whites, red beans, avocado, olives, baby corn. Ignore those salad snobs who insist on paying north of $10 at Dean&Deluca.

    Great place to grab a quick ANY THING (literally) to eat. Sandwiches/salads/soups/pasta/pizza/udon/ramen & all that. Be forewarned tho, have your money ready to go when u get to the register...or else

    At lunchtime, it gets crazy but I still love it. All the udon is great, I usually get mine with tofu. Chicken, shrimp, & beef teriyaki w/ rice is also delicious. -Erica C

    Did you know there is an entrance for this place on Mercer? Avoid the tourists on Broadway and head around the corner to the land of cobblestones, slower times, and an entrance off the beaten path.

    They make very good sandwiches and wraps, plus have a make your own pasta or salad section. During lunch time, make sure you know who is next in line to order.

    Quickest, cheap lunch in Soho with literally anything you want. Make your own salad = 5 toppings $8. Line always looks long but moves fast.

    Nutella & go snacks are $3.49. Or, you can walk for 3 minutes and 49 seconds to Duane Reed and buy the same thing for $0.99.

    The udon is hands down the best thing here and it's even better than that Jap market on Broome. Def worth the smelly visit to Dukes, I get it spicy with fried tofu!

    Your basic hero is definitely a two person lunch. Four bucks a piece for some fresh and healthy eats. Can't go wrong. Also low traffic for SoHo.

    Their breakfast sandwiches really hit the spot! Particularly their egg sausage muffins. Their French Toast ain't shabby either.

    The udon is s sleeper hit. Bonus: it's the first thing to the right after the door so you can avoid unnecessary nonsense.

    The udon is reasonably priced and a solid lunch option. I get the veggie dumpling udon.

    Salad bar is good but avoid the grilled chicken and go for the grilled vegetables and spicy shrimp dish.

    I get raisins in my oatmeal here. Not sure where they get them but they are the size of prunes and many still have the stem?! Please use normal raisins please.

    Not that the spicy tuna roll wasn't okay-fresh & average-grade (tuna) fish that you'd find in any typical deli or supermarket but the spicy mayo wasn't all that good. They used a cheaper, sweet mayo.

    Say what you will about the quality, but it's easily the quickest lunch grab in SoHo.

    The eggplant parm panini is quite possibly one of the best sandwiches ever...also they are super fast!

    Their spring rolls are horrible and their hot buffet is unforgivably bad-- but like an oft abused partner, I keep coming back for more...
