“Great, pricey sandwiches, loooong wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2012

This is a place where the amazing quality of the food trumps horribly slow service. As we were headed out of town, stopped here to get sandwiches for the road. It was 11:30 a.m., only two other people were in the place. We ordered a bagel with smoked salmon, the Italian combo and a Reuben.

The good news: these were some of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The Reuben was truly amazing.

The bad news: it took almost half an hour to get the food. It seems they may only have one sandwich press which must make for terribly long line-ups. Also this is a bit pricey.

But do give them a try, the product they put out is worth the wait.

“Good sandwiches but quite expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

I tried many sandwishes in Nort America, but seldon the bread was good (accoding to my European norms); at Squish this was the case (and maybe that is why you pay a bit more)

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

The food here is very good, but like some of the others have said, it is pricy. I know its Banff and generally you will pay more but our bill for the five of us was $63. So this place is more of a treat then regular lunch stop. Also, three of the five of us were kids. I would not recommend ordering a $13 dollar sandwich for kids who don’t generally eat all of their food. Thats my bad not theirs.

To sum it up, very good sandwiches, friendly staff, good portion sizes, a little expensive, don’t take the kids.
