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

My husband was working at the courthouse so I was looking for a sandwich place nearby that I could bring him lunch without moving the car. The pedistrian downtown mall is two blocks away from the courthouse. I liked the menu posted in the window and decided to order. Somehow I missed that the place was called Gourmet sandwiches --...

Title says it all. I don't know how you can mess up a sandwich, but this place seems to do a pretty good job of it. My friends and I decided to eat here despite being told it wasn't that great. We should have taken the advice. I ordered the grilled cheese and it came out looking like it had... More

I accidentally spilled some food on their patio and their manager came out YELLING! He forced me to clean up the mess and didn't even offer to help. No broom, no towels, nothing! I couldn't believe it! Not to mention their food is anything BUT gourmet...I had a sandwich once that was made out of moldy Wonder bread and it... More

In over the weekend for a getaway. My wife and I found this little joint, and decided to try it. It was the only busy spot along the street, so we figured this must be the spot. We loved it. The high noon, or egg salad sandwich was great, and the Navajo was the best sandwich I have ever had.... More

Baggby's is a small place located at the Charlottesville Pedestrian Mall. You place your order at the counter and they bring your order in a brown bag with your name on it. The menu had some appetizing selections however chips and drink are not included with the sandwhich. You do receive a small cookie. I mean small! It was about... More
