  • Excellent food all around, but I really love the breakfast special - spicy Mediterranean egg sandwich and the *best coffee* in the area! The owner is a nice guy as well. Great spot!
  • This small sandwich shop has a commitment to quality that raises above its Midtown peers.
  • A NowThis News staple, The Picnic Basket's Mediterranean Egg Sandwich with a coffee for $6 is the best breakfast deal around. Try it out!
  • Holy moly. The breakfast brioche with ham and cheese is ridiculously good. This place plays swanky old tunes and has power outlets to recharge you!! I will definitely be back!
  • People are super friendly! Their roast beef sandwich is delicious and a good size for the price you pay!
  • The med egg is the best breakfast sandwich I have ever had!
  • Order lunch ahead of time to avoid a long wait.
  • Delicious sandwiches served with a side of dry humour.
  • Everything is delicious but the lunch crowd can be brutal.
  • A hidden spot in Midtown that offers great sandwiches on ciabatta and multigrain bread.
  • Mediterranean Egg Sandwich (Spicy!) for 5 is the best breakfast deal around.
  • Med egg w/ hot sauce. Such a pleasant surprise. Texturally divine. Cheap, too.
  • great sandwiches to go!
  • Small lunch spot. With really tasty clean food.
  • Came here for the art
  • Pastrami hot press in italian ciabatta
  • great sandwiches and fast service!
  • This place is awesome. The crunchy tuna sandwich is without doubt the best tuna fish sandwich Ive ever had. It almost feels incorrect to call it that.
  • It's a nice place to grab lunch, especially if you take it to go and have it in the park. Then it's a real picnic in the park I recommend the Mediterranean salad (comes w pita+tzatziki)& sandwiches
  • All sandwiches are good here
