If Lewis Black asks you to buy him a sandwich, you buy him a sandwich!

I spent many a dollar at Pappa Charlie's as an intern with Williamstowno Theatre Festival, and long for the day when I return for a show and a sandwich. I'm jealous of ever Williamstown resident and college student who is in regular proximity and can go there as frequently as they like, slowly... read more

My wife and I were looking forward to visiting this establishment because we had heard good things about it from friends. Pappa Charlie's does every every type of sandwich that you could possible imagine. It is difficult to choose off of the posted menu over the counter because of all of the great choices. My wife ordered the chicken park... More

This place is cute, famous, and actually makes amazing sandwiches! The board of all the famous people and all the sandwiches is a little overwhelming, but you can't go wrong. This place accepts cash only.

Okay so for a small sandwich shop this place packs a punch. I love sandwiches and this is the place to go. I always order the same thing every time and every time it gets better and better. I love how there are pictures of all the people who have been there and how they name that sandwich after them!... More

Sandwich comes on good bread but that's all you get, no chips for about $9.00. The drinks are expensive as well. The soup was uniquely delish. They are pro recycle. It was good but a bit pricey

This place has great sandwiches that are completely unique. There is a giant wall of sandwich choices and you really can't go wrong here. It can take some time for them to make the sandwiches but be patient and enjoy. Cash only so make sure you hit the atm first. Prices are very reasonable and I will be back!

Went here for breakfast of coffee and bagels. Service was friendly and prompt, the place was clean and the food was very good. A lovely place to have a breakfast and set yourself up for the day. Our second visit on the Saturday morning had a steady stream of students from the local university calling in to get take out... More

Whilst visiting Williamstown for a couple of days we ate breakfast here on both occasions. The food was exceptionally good value for money & the chef Pappa Charlie was generous with his portions. The deli is frequented by the local college students & so they expect value for money & tasty food & they get it.

A long term Williams College student staple. Interesting sandwiches that have been consistently yummy over the 10 + years we have been visiting. Some of the sandwiches have a long term cult like following. Highly recommended!
