I had one of the most delicious (and delightfully messiest!) BBQ sandwiches at this place. The waitress was very friendly.

We loved finding this restaurant while wandering Olympia. The staff were very friendly and our waiter took time to learn what kind of taste we were looking for. The ambiance is laid back but busy with all of the customers. Highlights: The four cheese sandwich was tasty, and the albacore tuna, especially on jalapeño bread, was amazing. Just right for... More

My husband & I spent the day walking around downtown Olympia yesterday! We decided to try out 5th Avenue Sandwich Shop for lunch. I ordered the French Dip & my husband ordered the BBQ Beef. I absolutely loved my French Dip. My husband devoured his BBQ Beef! It's a little messy but well worth it! The staff was super friendly... More

We stopped for lunch on our way home from Oregon and loved their sandwiches. I had the four cheese which was fabulous. My husband thought their egg salad was the best he ever had. The service was excellent in spite of being packed. We will return.

We went to this place under the impression that they would have gluten free bread but they didn't. Instead they were able to make the turkey BLT as a lettuce wrap, which was good. My sister had a salad and it was good but not amazing. The place had a homey feel. It was good but not amazing.

We went in for a quick lunch and found the best lunch I have had in a long time. The soup was great and the sandwich was wonderful.

I go to lunch here I smile. Olympia is blessed to have such a great lunch spot. The Clubhouse on Jalepeno bread is Epic and the Hot Oly Beef is a damn proud sandwich. Girl can bake! The desserts are just as good. I take mine home the lunch is so big.

We were driving south for a planned trip to Mount St. Helen's and found this gem on a small street in Olympia (which we have now decided is our favorite Washington city!) Met with many greetings by the staff, our order was taken quickly in this charming spot. I got the 1/2 sandwich - four cheese with avocado, spinach and... More
