Great Sandwiches since 1977

Owen and Kathy MacNutt started the Box Lunch here in Wellfleet in 1977 when he was a teacher searching for a seasonal business. The original "Rollwich" was an instant success with a variety of fillings wrapped in rolled bread (much like a pita). Still great sandwiches for all tastes, each with a... read more

The Box Lunch, which also has branches in Provincetown and Eastham, does excellent rollup sandwiches of many kinds. I always order their Roast Beef w Horseradish rollup , and my wife usually orders one of the Tuna rollups, but there are dozens of others, some quite elaborate, to chhose from. This is a takeout-only place, but the food is always... More

When our family needs sandwiches to go, this is our "go to" place. The sandwiches are convenient, easy to eat and taste great. There are lots of options to choose from and we've never been disappointed with the quality of the food. This is a must try in Wellfleet. It's a great sandwich to take to the beach.

Very conveniently located in Eastham off Rt 6. Good wraps and reasonably priced (for the Cape, that is). The lobster wrap was very good.

What's great about this little spot is you can pop in and buy a couple of sandwiches for a picnic on the beach and do pretty well. They have great kid choices--PB&J, Ham and cheese, along with some things that will satisfy adults. I like their more vegetarian options (even though I'm not a vegetarian), like the hummus based sandwiches.... More

I have eaten HUNDREDS of box lunch sandwiches since they opened in the Seventies. Never, ever had a bad one. This is a take out place... Don't expect much in the way of amenities. Just really good pita sandwiches. Always.

This was our first visit and we loved it. I understand this was the original Box Lunch & it's a great place to grab a bite. I had the Gilded lobster which was delicious & the rest of our party loved their food too. We ate at the table inside as it was threatening to rain & the very friendly... More
