This is one of my favorite sandwich places in Olympia. All of their souls and sandwiches are great, but my favorite is the four cheese. It is perfect. The staff are friendly and fun too.

Great sandwiches and killer soups. Their clam chowder is super. Recommend you get in before the noon lunch crowd.

We frequent this place and always leave satisfied and happy. The best is the BLT with chicken breast and avocado. They bake everything on site. First rate in every way for a great lunch at very fair prices. True home touch quality.

The Sandwich Shop is a casual little restaurant. Service is excellent. The menu is not extensive, but the sandwiches are well proportioned and delicious. Highly recommended

I would hate to give an incorrect answer so I would suggest simply asking the restaurant. I think they do have alternative choices.
