Great little cafe with sandwiches and soup. My daughter had a half cobb salad that had WAY more goodies (chicken, bacon, avocado, hard-boiled egg) than lettuce, the opposite of most places. I had a BLT sandwich with more bacon than I've ever seen on a sandwich. And the best part of lunch were the french fries. I never order or... More

Menu had plenty of options (as long as you are looking for soup/sandwich/salads). Have always left very pleased. Try the Turkey/Cranberry sandwich!

First time eating here and the food was delicious. Sandwich was fat and fresh. Service was friendly. I'll definitely visit again.

Bustling, that's the best word to describe any lunch time at the 5th Ave. Friendly staff, including a certain wait person called Holly - she introduces herself, and is a veritable fountain of good spirits. I would guess some people go there just to have Holly lift their spirits a little.

When my mother comes to town for lunch, this is the place we normally choose. Why try something new when you know you are going to get a great meal at the 5th Avenue Sandwich Shop. Today I had the Hot Oly sandwich and a bowl of soup, perfect for a cold day. My mom had a half turkey and... More

we picked up a sandwich from here to eat later. There was a good choice of fillings and bread and everything seemed very fresh. They were made up to order which is always nice. The sandwiches were huge. In fact we both ate only half that day and saved the other half for the next day......

The setting is simple. Small tables, friendly but busy servers and a decent menu. The bread is fresh daily and tasty. The egg salad and Rueben sandwiches were perfect. The four cheese sandwich was a great complement to the chicken noodle soup on a rainy day. Pies are fresh baked and don't seem to last long. If passing through and... More

2 adults and a teenager. All very happy. My mushroom swiss burger was perfect, with thousand island dressing, and ample amounts of fries. It was really tasty on a home made bun. My wife's triple decker was so filling she could not finish it and the teenager's roast beef with au jus was more than enough for a growing boy.... More
