“Finally a real sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

I love a good quality deli style sandwich and not Subway. I was surprised to find a quality sandwich in NYC that didn't drip grease and mayo. I loved the variety in their side wall listed menu, their fresh ingredients but most of all, NO MAYO! They use a yogurt like spread or olive oil! The owner/chef was so genuinely warm towards us and suggested some sandwiches which sounded to good to pass up. They offered to cut them up in 3 pieces cause they heard we wanted to try each others. Sharing is caring. They were all delicious. The one with Portuguese sausage and another with Brie were delish. I would highly suggest City Sandwich if you were looking more real then the "sandwich artists". Bonus tip from the chef; they remove some from the cut part of the bread to put more ingredients in. More bang for the buck. Must try for foodies.

“Best Sandwich in NYC and the World! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

I am proud to say in our 5 days in NYC, we went to City Sandwich 3 times! It was THAT good. We went to City Sandwich for our first lunch, we went for breakfast, and we went to City Sandwich during a food tour (because any decent West end food tour MUST go to City Sandwich). Don't ever compare City Sandwich to Subway, it's an insult. You are comparing a Rolls Royce (City Sandwich) to a rust bucket (subway). The owner and head chef is the nicest guy you'll ever meet, and a joy to hear his enthusiasm and pride towards his sandwiches. A true Sandwich Artisan, and dare I say Sandwich revolutionary. Don't take my word for it... go try it for yourself!

“Fresh & Different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

It is nice to find a place with good, fresh and tasty sandwiches that don't make you feel that you will have a heart attack after lunch! The sandwiches were very good (not fantastic) but the desserts were excellent.

TIP: They deliver

“The Freshest Sandwich in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

A really delicious selection of sandwiches. No fatty dressings or mayo, just interesting filling combinations of fresh ingredients and a still warm baguette style roll. Michael the owner is passionate about the food he offers and makes a massive effort to greet the customers individually. A real highlight for those with a sweet tooth are the pastel a crema, authentic Portugese style custard tarts. Enjoy!

“Wonderful fresh food. Good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

We are very happy with choice and quality. Pastels! You must try one or two or three! The sandwiches travel well for the tourist day - the vegetarian ones are better
