Description: We've been voted Bellingham's Best Sandwich for over ten years in a row, and there's good reason for this. We start with our fresh-baked bread (Focaccia, Rosemary, Mulitigrain, Ciabatta, just to name a few...), Add lots of tasty veggies, and all-natural meats (if you're into that sort of thing- if not, we have lots of vegetarian options), finish with great homemade spreads, and present you a gourmet sandwich fit for royalty. Special to our Railroad cafe are our flats, our take on pizza, and our grinders.

My favorite sandwich of ALL TIME is made by Avenue. Just do it. Get the Gourmet Turkey with extra pesto spread. You're welcome. Oh and all of their other sandwiches are great as well but since discovering the Gourmet Turkey, it's the only one for me. Super fresh and filling and the staff is always so awesome and friendly. Can get really really busy around lunch time in which case they slow down service wise but still worth it.

Avenue Bread is a good place to relax from shopping or wandering downtown. I really enjoy their Reuben sandwiches on tasty NY rye bread. Another fave is the Grilled Club with Havarti cheese. The staff is friendly and relaxed for the amount of traffic. Nice place for lunch.

We went to the James St location on Saturday, I ordered two egganue's to go & it was supposed to be a 25-30 min I stood and waited, and waited. At the 1/2 hour mark I went up to the counter and asked if they could check on my food because it had been 1/2 an hour and no one had called my name, she looked around and found our food sitting on the top of the soup pots, I'm guessing that's their "warmers"... she then tosses onto the counter in front of me and walks away. I stood there & waited, and she came back, "is there something else" she says rudely, I said "can I have a bag please", and " our food has been sitting there for who knows how long, I've been sitting here waiting to be called"... again a RUDE response "apologies" and she walked away.

Our food was not good & it was very rubbery and chewy, and tasted like it was sitting for a while, the cheese had even started to harden again because it wasn't all that warm any longer. This was my husbands first experience with an Avenue Bread breakfast, he likely won't return as the food wasn't worth the wait or the price.

Generally I have good experiences at Avenue so that's why I'm giving 2 Stars, but this experience should be a 1 star.
