    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

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

    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.

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

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

    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.
