This restaurant is one of the gems of Minot. A wide variety of creative salads, pastas, and deli sandwiches. Closest to an east coast deli that you'll get here. Go here for lunch and you will not be disappointed.

the tuna salad sandwich was awesome in the toasted ciabatta bun with crunchy spinach. Loved that cottage cheese was a choice for a side. Awesome.

I'm not quite sure what the fuss is about this restaurant. Inside it is cute, but nothing extraordinary. The staff was friendly but not more so than most places. My friends and I found the sandwiches to be well...expensive and overrated. They are good when you are in the area and are hungry, but nothing special to seek out.

Food here is superb! Definitely try something that sounds weird because the food will surprise you! Not a dingy bar atmosphere at all!

When in Minot on business I stopped in based on other positive online reviews; all where proven true. This is a very original and interesting joint, with fantastic sandwiches! On a Monday around 6pm I ordered the Ba-Da Boom and was pleasantly surprised by the multiple complementary flavors packed into this sandwich. Two days later I stopped in again for... More

I <3 BTB. To address the price, yes it is pricey. But well worth it in the end. It isn't your typical subway/Quiznos/jimmy johns sandwich it is served fresh and hot (I'm sure you could get it cold...but why? We are in Minot...its cold enough) the chips leave something to want for but there are other options. Truth be told,... More

The food here is excellent. Many different choices of sandwiches to try and have new flavors every visit. One of the few places serving draft Fat Tire in town. The crew are a great bunch of people and always feel welcome. Yum

They have a really great, unique selection of sandwiches, salads, and beers. The ingredients were fresh and everything was cooked perfectly. Service is a bit slow but overall its a great find.
