I meet people often at South Street Down Under regarding philanthropic work. It's a nice locale between eastern and western Loudoun County. Coffe, tea, sandwiches, desserts are all (mostly) self serve. Very casual small place with seating inside and out. No one minds if you sit and meet for a couple of hours. Food is good lunch or snack fare.

Still great after more than adecade. Been going here since it opened as quiet, quaint place the specialized in it fresh, hot ciabatta bread. Now that it is a busy hot spot, we still go for fresh bread, but avoid the crowds. Many people enjoy the seating on the patio. Dog, kid, and bicyclist friendly.

With a good selection of somewhat unique sandwiches, excellent pastries, good service, and a large patio (along with indoor seating as well), it's hard not to like this place. I'm glad their name was so literal. We had trouble finding it at first, but they thought, "It has to be 'under'". Sure enough, we found the stairs shortly thereafter! If... More

Its a great sandwich bistro; nothing more, nothing less. Some very interesting combinations, but I tend to gravitate toward the old reliable: tuna salad or their sandwich of the day. Simple and fresh ingredients. Now with the brewery immediately around the corner, I grab the sandwich on a nice sunny day and walk 20 steps to grab a beer and... More

The motto on their cups is "Hard to Find, Easy to Love," and it is soooo true. Not too difficult to find, but it does require some perseverance, as it's not the first 5 restaurants you see when searching. The food is very much worth the search. Husband had Tuscan chicken sandwich, I had the Turkey Day (turkey with cranberry... More

I discovered South Street Under over 2 years ago after we moved to the Leesburg area. It is my #1 go to sandwich place in the area! Their ciabatta bread is delicious and fresh and the quality of their food is top notch. I have never been disappointed with any meal I have ordered there. The staff is also an... More

Love the outdoor seating. Great salads and sandwiches. Also, a great pit stop off of the W&OD trail.

Great selection of sandwiches, homemade soups and salads. It's a little hard to find but worth the looking. It is under Tuscarora Mill restaurant. Lot's of out door dining and a pleasant courtyard area. They even make great cakes and my son ordered a cake from there for his wedding and it was much better than most wedding cakes. The... More

This is our favorite spot for lunch or a light dinner. Wonderful sandwiches, soups, salads, and coffee drinks. Very casual with limited seating inside.
