5th on 4th Sandwich Shop

The most awesome soft homemade breads...there is also a bakery shop next door where on can buy the breads and pastries served at the sandwich shop. They also have amazing pies and home made chips. The one negative is limited seating and a wait time to get a table.

We had lunch for the first time at 5th Avenue Sandwich Shop. Our server was friendly and was happy to make suggestions when I asked. On his advice, I added bacon to the Four Cheese sandwich which added to its excellence. Really good potato salad as a side was included with the price of a sandwich. Next time I may... More

The food was fantastic, portions were generous and the staff went way beyond friendly and helpful! Check out the cinnamon rolls, too. They're huge!

On a recent drive from Seattle to Vancouver, we stopped for lunch at this fabulous sandwich shop. The restaurant is no-frills with old-fashioned decor. Our server was fantastic. Unfortunately, I don't remember her name, but she did a great job recommending different items on the menu. I decided to try 1/2 sandwich and soup. Based on our server's recommendation, I... More

This has got to be my favorite sandwich shop in the U.S. I've traveled quite extensively and have never come across a shop with such a homey feel, and such pride in the quality of food. This is a must try if you are passing through Olympia and want to stop for lunch.

Love having lunch at this place. Have had a couple different sandwiches always wonderful. The atmosphere is a bit noisy, an old building not the best acoustics. The only hang up is finding parking downtown Olympia. My friends and I tend to avoid down town unless I am the driver, I don't mind parallel parking!!

5th Avenue Sandwich is a fantastic place for lunch. Best bread, great soups, great desserts, and superb service. Still my favorite club in the area by far.

Some friends had asked me to meet them there for lunch. It was my first time there. I had soup and salad. I believe the soup that day was cream of broccoli and it was very good. The salad was a basic garden salad - everything in it was nice and crisp, not wilted. The service was superb abd the... More
