    Vegan options: [1] the roast beef w/o beef + tomato instead. [2] teriyaki tofu w/o ginger dressing. [3] shrimp w/o shrimp, cheese, or avo dressing (ask for extra spinach + asparagus. All are so good!!

    Quite possibly the best veggie sandwiched I've ever had. Nice soft focaccia, perfectly toasted, with crunchy bottom. Great combo of veggies (red pepper) with pesto and smoked eggplant. Wow.

    Sample the selection of grilled cheese, banh mi, beef short rib, & turkey confit sandwiches. Custom sodas such as vanilla kola & lemongrass-lime leaf help wash down the great food. Read more

    Grahamwich is truly innovative, creating homemade sodas, seasonal soft serve, and various pickled local vegetables. Located in Tree Studios, a former artist colony that was founded in 1894.

    Storybook grilled cheese is lovingly assembled with dense white sandwich bread and a one-two punch of oozing cheddar and cheese curds; prosciutto and tomato jam make it an adult treat. Read more

    The roast beef on the pretzel roll was really effin good. As was the homemade orange ginger soda. Gotta love the chalkboard-walled bathroom and beautiful patio in the back.

    We love the housemade sodas (flavors include orange ginger and vanilla kola) and the irresistible sides, which range from truffled popcorn to pickled farmers market veggies.

    A sandwich place MUST. The Beef Shortrib sandwich is a go-to as well as the Smoked Whitefish Sandwich. Have a home-made soda with your sandwich to complete the meal.

    Overpriced and mediocre food, long waits and a general lack of seating make Ghramwich a disappointment. The custom sodas were excellent, but weren't worth their cost. I can't foresee coming back here.

    Grahamwich provides both a healthy ego and a trendy sandwich, while offering only eight signature ‘wiches a day. It makes Gourmet Live’s list of must-eats in bakery world USA.

    Loved the whitefish! Great flavors. Pastrami was tasty-a bit messy though. Chips, popcorn & soda were yum! Need to go back n try others

    The disposable French press things are cool, just be careful to press the filter down slowly... Mine just spewed super hot coffee all over myself and the table

    The Cinnamon soft serve is TO. DIE. FOR. and comes with salted caramel, apple bits and pie crust sprinkles (enough said)...WOW!

    Not to be ignored is their breakfast menu. Hot pastrami and melted gruyere on a panini-pressed croissant is a ridiculous morning indulgence.

    I've had each of these sandwiches (someone picked-up, so I still need my check-in). They are awesome, along with the fries!

    The smoked whitefish is amazing. Grilled cheese borders on soggy. Note...even if it is empty they won't let you use the Internet. Lame. Lame. Lame.

    👍 Grilled cheese was one of the best I've ever had in my life. 👎 Couldn't taste the ginger in the orange ginger soda.

    Come here and order the grilled cheese or the wyagu beef sandwich. This place is the best sandwich joint in Chicago.

    The popcorn was out of this world. And I bet you couldn't find a bad sandwich on this menu.

    For being a "gourmet" sandwich place, they sure suck at keeping stock of whatever they need to make their basic sandwiches.

    Not a good experience. They refunded my meal w/out hesitation. But unimpressive lunch spot.

    In this grilled cheese, the tomato relish provides a bright sweetness that regular slices of tomato just can't accomplish.

    Turkey sandwich and couscous were both very dry. Not really sure what all the hype is about. Totally mediocre experience.
