    Three of us shared a sandwich and a cheese plate, and it was amazing! The Gorgonzola and Gouda are especially good, and the sandwiches and olives have an amazing flavor!

    Look, the sandwiches are good, but I've regularly waited 20 minutes for a sandwich after ordering. Very slow, not a good choice for lunch.

    The blue pig & fig was excellent. It comprises Serrano ham, blue cheese, fig spread, mustard and local greens on baguette. It was enough for a generous single portion.
  • Samantha H.
    Amazing sandwiches for a quick 'grab n' go' bit to eat. They have a wide variety of cheeses, wines and other delicacies.

    Great sandwiches. It's a de facto to-go place because of the lack of seating.

    Both sandwiches I had here were amazing--tip: try anything w serano ham or their hand carved turkey and add cornichons/manchego. quality of meats/cheeses used in the sandwiches is top notch.

    They don't have Havarti 😔 but they DO have a great selection of honeys, Dijon mustards, and other fancy assorted condiments you may need in your life 👍🏾

    Eat here for lunch! Their version of a Mediterranean salad is excellent (add house roasted local turkey). Also a cheese and charcuterie counter. These folks are super knowledgable too

    Spanish Tuna - delicious. The "pastoralise it" deal is a bit of a scam - they give you a ridiculously tiny cookie instead of the delicious big ones that they have visible!

    Lunch from Pastoral then hit up the Art Institute. Pastoral has great sandwiches and the Art Institute is the best place to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    This outlet of the local bread and cheese store serves up sandwiches of a frighteningly high quality for under $10. Seating, unfortunately, is extremely limited.

    Just don't look for the grilled cheese on the menu. Each day, two paninis are available, and one of those is usually what you're after.

    You know what I don't appreciate? Being told in the world's most condescending tone that cheese/meat plates need to be phoned in now. So, uh, fair warning.

    The Sinfully Healthy may be the most delicious sandwich ever created. Don't be fooled by the name, there's enough cheese on it to kill a lactose intolerant.

    Gale's Rootbeer is the best! Grab a Bocadillo sandwich. Rodembach beer is so smooth you will think you are drinking a glass of wine. And if you are in the mood for cheese try the Saint Agur.
