    Not a place to sit & relax. Get in, order your Olive's Hero sandwich or their special, pay up, and get out. If it's nice out, find some unoccupied stoops in SoHo to eat and watch fashionable people.

    My favorite walkin sandwich shop in SoHo! The mozzarella sandwich is God's Gift! Tip: Go EARLY, or expect a line. Expect near Soup-Nazi treatment from the clerk if you mess up the order and payment.

    The roast chicken sandwich and any salad with the balsamic vinaigrette! You seriously can't go wrong with anything here. They're daily market plates are amazing!

    Look, the sandwiches are fine. But this is NYC. Nit exactly hard to find a good sanger. So forget the sandwiches and focus on their chocolate croissant. Focus.... And buy. Just superb.

    If you're a cookie person and they have the Chocolate Heath Bar cookie, don't miss out! It has pecans and that's a good thing.

    The roast beef is exceptional, as is the flank steak sando. Ignore the salads, not because they are salads, but because they are served with no dressing and just aren't as good as the rest of the menu

    My faves: the best chocolate chip cookie in NYC, the cowboy cookie, and if you're in the mood to be healthy, have the fruit salad. No melon!

    Hard to go wrong here, but favorites are 1. Oatmeal raisin cookies; 2. Ancho Chili Rubbed Steak sandwich; 3. Roasted shitake mushrooms sandwich

    Great sandwiches and salads, remarkable service very well organized. Deserts are less great. A bit expensive for the size you get.

    Definitely a take out place - there are a few benches but meant more for people waiting to pick up food. They pre make a lot of sandwiches to reduce wait time which is good if you're in a hurry

    Call ahead (otherwise 10-15 minute cook-time wait) for the Ancho chili rubbed steak sandwich. Freaking delicious!

    Marinated chicken sandwich on sliced sourdough. Add bacon if you like. Lemonade is great. Iced coffee is great.

    Love the chicken sandwich and lunchtime special salads. Yes, it's overpriced, but so's everything in the neighborhood.

    The chicken and chipotle mayo focaccia is made even more delicious by the toasted rosemary on the bread.

    Thursday's special sandwich: avocado, havarti and sprouts is amazing. Get the fresh lemonade if it's available!

    Most of their soups are good here, and change daily, but keep an eye out for the 5 bean chili, or the yellow split pea.

    The sandwiches are great. Tiny place, but good if you can find a bench spot. David Bowie is rumored to eat here….

    Always go for the Special Sandwich. (the steak sando, however tempting, takes 12 mins)

    The special veggie sandwich is worth the lunch time line-up and the small deli manages to fit an assembly line of ten workers to make sure that everyone is served in NY realtime.

    The people working here are rude but the food makes up for that. Grilled chicken on focaccia bread is amazing.

    Get a salad to be healthy and then treat yourself to a cookie. The steak sandwich is good too.

    Chili Rubbed steak is the best, worth the 10min wait!

    $1.91 for a pretty decent bagel and cream cheese in the morning - WAY better than the comparably priced breakfast carts in the area.

    Adding more fancy ingredients to a sandwich does not make it better. Their hero is not a particularly well complimenting set of flavors.

    Ludicrous pricing/ordering system makes the lunch rush more chaotic and time-consuming, not less

    More often than not the specials are what you should order. Avoid the chicken sandwich (dry).
