Very friendly service, delicious fresh food (I had a sub and soup and a sofa.). Cost was $12 and worth every penny. Not much seating but it was empty when we were there. Will definitely go again.....

Child number four and I popped in this week for a sandwich before her afternoon test. It was really good. A nice young woman immediately took our order, and it was ready in a few minutes. We sat outside at a table in the warm Charlottesville sun. My daughter's sandwich was good, and mine was also tasty. It had real... More

have been going here for years and sandwiches are consistently delicious, their cookies are awesome as well. Great for catering (recommend for graduation parties, meetings etc). The dressing is perfection. It's somehow linked to or modeled after the Cheese Shop in Williamsburg--same sandwich style and same dressing. But glad we've got it here in Cville!

Take It Away is a terrific place to grab a great sandwich and sweet treat. Tom has put together a nice menu of tasty options that can not only meet but surpass your expectations. Prices are reasonable. Plus the homemade cookies and sweets are good anytime. And they can cater events.

What sets these sandwiches apart is the bread. Too much and it's tough to taste the main event. There are a lot of good options (both meat and veggie) and the service was quick. There is someone there to greet you as you come in and make suggestions. I had roast beef with provolone and added fresh sprouts. It was... More

One of our favorite lunch places near the UVA grounds. Enjoyed coming here while my daughter was a student. Sandwiches are fantastic and they have good soup and sides as well. Only drawback is that there are not a lot of tables available to sit at once you get your order, but as far as the food goes, Take It... More

Went there because of the good reviews. I had looked at the menu online but made the incorrect assumption it was abbreviated. The meat selection was very good but the items to add was limited and EACH cost extra. Yes extra for the arugula, cheese etc. The choices for add besides cheese were sprouts ( i guess no one has...

They make good sandwiches (competitive prices) and lots of varitey. So, sandwiches are ok, but for the most part, they are sandwiches. Dipping sauce is why we go there!

The place is filled during lunch, but service is still relatively fast. Big variety of sandwiches and condiments. The Turkey sandwich I had was good. Would definitely come back to this place.
