A friend and I had spent 4 nights in D.C. This place was on the same block as our hotel as it was just around the corner. The sausage and egg on wheat bread sandwich was very good. Good coffee, too.

Ate there on our first night in DC. One of the few places in the area open on a Sunday night. The soup and sandwich combo was tasty and a good value

The sanwiches at Potbelly his the spot. They have great chips and the sandwiches are made to order. I had youth aged 12-22 and half of them preferred a sandwich there to McDonalds two doors over. It is a healthier and satisfying alternative to fast food.

There is a wide choice, and the sandwich is fresh and tasty. The place is not so clean, however also at rush hour in ten minutes you are out. Good the ratio quality of food /price. Once I tryed the roastbeef, but the main flavour was the cheese on top, the second time the meatball, the meat was to dry!... More

After traveling for a month, I was getting tired of the same takeout options. Found this shop by chance and now seek it out where possible. Great sandwich combinations and staff are very helpful. Similar to subway, only more gormet, cheaper, and healthier.

Delicious sandwiches made-to-order. The only thing that could be better is if they always had milk in stock because their PB&J is AWESOME. The tuna one is good too, but not recommended for transit (ie, take away) because of the potential sog factor.
