    Oaxacan pork is the sandwich. Chicken tortilla is the salad. Discussion over.

    Absolutely outstanding sandwiches. Pollo Diablo and Turkey Turkey are both incredible. Highly recommended if you're in the mood for sandwiches.

    Of all the neighborhood cafés in Chicago, this one holds a special place in my heart. Try the "Pollo Diablo," and remember this it's cash only! (A stop by the ATM is worth it, promise).

    The pizza is great for 5 bucks!! BUT be prepared to wait 30 mins. Order ahead during busy times!

    While cookies are ok, the lady who works here is a super bitch. Doesn't tell you it is cash only till you are handed your bag then gives you a dirty look & swears at you when you only have your card.

    For Arizonans, this is a smaller, more local version of Beyond Bread, aka awesomeness in a sandwich. Also have salads and pastas, great cookies, and good looking desserts

    Sandwiches are on a whole 'nother level here! Fresh homemade bread (mmmm Tomato Focaccia) and deliciously decadent cookies! Excellent soup and sides (just avoid the dry quesadillas). It's BYOB too!

    They don't have it everyday but their wheat bread is phenom. Ask for it. It's especially tasty on the grilled cheese special.

    Ham & cheese on sweet french bread is my favorite. Salty & sweet. Looking for a perfect summer desert? Get the baked lemon pudding with blueberries on top. To die for.
