This has to the best place for Breakfast and lunch, I loved these, the Awreck sandwich is amazing, and the Sausage and Egg for Breakfast is so nice. make sure you visit one of these shops, they are a chain like Subway, but miles better.

Great location...on the way to or from the White House, the Mall and Connecticut Avenue. You choose what you want on your sandwich. Enjoy hot coffee and good soups. Reasonably priced...friendly staff.

Good sandwiches, reasonable prices. It's a good place for lunch while visiting DC. I had the hot roast beef sandwich, it was quite tasty.

For my first visit, this place was a bit confusing. I didn't know what was going on behind the counter, so when I stepped up, I didn't realize I was only supposed to order part of my sandwich, then move along and order the toppings.

This is definitely the higher end of fast food with better quality breads and ingredients for sandwiches, as well as soups. The service at this location was really good and worth noting. VERY friendly and helpful.
