This place is the very best place for soup and sandwich lunches. The jalapeno bread that they make is perfection. The cheddar and broccoli soup is seriously delicious. If you go there you won't be disappointed.

I have eaten here many times...the sandwiches are amazing, made on artisan breads. I usually get the BLT on Jalapeño bread. Bacon is thick cut and delicious. I have also had the Cobb salad, very good and filling!

Best sandwiches in town!!! Best and most fun waitress me and my girls have ever had. You have to try the Hot Oly and the Beer Cheddar Soup(if available). Grab a Homemade cinnamon roll too!!!

I love small businesses, especially ones like 5th Avenue. The staff was super friendly and they make the bread, desserts and soups in house. The cheddar broccoli was one of the best I have ever tried, and the French dip sandwich was delicious! Next time...More

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