Great option for a quick lunch or for show at Pavillion

We grab sandwiches from Baggby's for lunch sometimes and have learned that they really are the best option for food during a show at the Pavillion since they allow outside food! There are tons of choices, all of which are great. Their cookies are really good, too! One thing to remember if you do... read more

Stopped in for lunch while walking the mall. Nice sandwiches at very reasonable price. Wife ordered a soup without knowing it was a creamy soup and was refunded promptly. Enjoyed the meal on the mall and will be sure to return !!

This was a great late day find while walking the downtown mall in Charlottesville. We toured UVA with my daughter and it was late afternoon. We were very hungry. The restaurant was mostly empty at this time, but the food was really good. They were extremely friendly and my entire family loved their hot sandwiches. I especially enjoyed the Philly... More

This is a cute, family-run business that has a great market on the lunch-time sandwich rush. The service is extremely friendly, and the sandwiches are classic meals similar to what my grandma used to make me growing up. This is not a foodie-destination, but sometimes, I just want a good club without any bells and whistles! I love the BLT.... More

I love this sandwich place. The owners and staff are super friendly, delightful folk who offer a wide variety of delicious sandwiches made with fresh ingredients. If you like no-nonsense, one ingredient sandwiches, these are all on the menu with comforting homemade taste. I now always get the egg salad, plain, because it is simply the best. If you want...

I took the kids for a quick bite to eat one day after the museum and it was fantastic. Yummy sandwiches and the kids all LOVED their ice cream! Yay!

Delicious standard sandwiches (turkey club with avocado is a must, comes with plenty of bacon and who does not need plenty of bacon?). Perfect lunch spot when you are in a hurry on the downtown mall or when you need a delivery fix.

All of the sandwich items are quite good. This is a family-owned restaurant that has offered "brown bag" sandwiches and cookies for decades -- quickly served, clean and pleasant eating area, and there is a good chance they'll remember your name (and order) if you make a connection with John...

Here in the mid atlantic we have an amazing selection of freshly prepared hot sandwiches to choose from, often served with a freshly baked sub roll. Baggby's uses a microwave and supermarket bread and they serve smaller portions, at higher prices, than anywhere else in town. They ARE on the mall, but one block up, you can get a better... More
