Really good sandwiches and desserts. Soups are awesome and owners are very pleasant . Great atmosphere and there always seems to be a crowd.

Whenever it's my pick for lunch, this is where we go. There are a multitude of sandwich combinations, and the soups to go with it. One of my favorites is the Reuben--but there are so many to choose--and all so good, that I always try something new. I have heard that their brownies are killer, but have not had any... More

My office is across the street from this restaurant and is always a joy. Once a week I enjoy their food at least. The Frank Lloyd Wright sandwich is my favorite. It comes with chips, but often I get soup or chili instead as a side. Salads are wonderful here and quite large. Owners are there and are active in... More

I eat here on a regular basis when I am at work since it is so close. They have awesome soups and sandwiches. Make sure you ask about the daily specials and have cash on you, credit cards not accepted. Yesterday I got the chicken salad which is one of my favorites.

We come to Starving Artists for lunch on a regular basis. The homemade soups, which change on a daily basis, are very flavorful. There are plenty of vegetarian options and the restaurant identifies meat (if contained) in the soup title. The sandwiches are cleverly named after famous artists, and are excellent! The homemade cheesecake (or other desserts) is a delicious... More

We love this place! We'd lived in the area for several years before trying it after we discovered we actually knew the owner. It's a small spot with maybe 6 tables, but the turnover is quick and lots get their lunch to go. They also deliver to surrounding areas. The owner takes the orders and delivers them to your table....

The pasta salad and sandwiches are wonderful! They only have like 6 tables so if you go at lunch it can get a little crowded. They also do catering which is just as good

If you're not careful you will drive right past one of the best bargains in Louisville. This is a small hole-in-the-wall place near the intersection of New Lagrange Road and Lyndon Lane. They are open from 11 AM - 4 PM, Monday through Friday. They have a special every day for $6.00 plus tax. That includes a homemade sandwich and... More
