“Fast, simple, healthy, and delicious!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This is a great place to go to just grab a good, old-fashioned, fresh sandwich! The staff is nice, the menu is extensive but easy to choose from, and they have you in and out the door in less than five minutes if that is what you need. I always get turkey and cheddar in wheat with spicy mustard, but the veggie wrap and tuna salad are good too. Cute and simple and easy plus great parking!

“Near Exceptional, But A Little Pricey”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

For me to rate a place as Excellent it must be excellent in these areas:

1) Staff friendliness and speed of service
2) Value (price versus taste and quality)
3) Atmosphere (do I feel welcome)
4) Taste of the food

The staff was nice, friendly and very accommodating. The atmosphere was a little sanitary; lacked character. The Chicken Parmesan sandwich could have used a little more marinara but was generous with cheese. I asked for some hot sauce and was given the house made Habinero sauce, which was outstanding (better than Sriracha) so made up for the lack of savoriness that I prefer. The home made white bean soup was delicious. The Chicken Salad was nicely made, not too much mayonnaise. My wife appreciated that they have Gluten free bread. The value; a little pricey, but I suspect it has a lot to do with their overhead being right near the water and park.

I would definitely make this a place to frequent if I lived in Newburyport.

“Fresh & Tasty Sandwiches Really Hit The Spot”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Although I have eaten lunch here on quite a few occasions, this is my first review. This very clean little sandwich shop serves a nice variety of creatively-prepared, fresh and absolutely delicious sandwiches, soups and other great lunch fare. Yesterday, I ordered the turkey, bacon and russian dressing combo and it was terrific. Most are named after local communities and mine was called the "West Newbury." It was served on warm dark rye bread although different bread choices are offered. The owner served us and he and his staff are always friendly and, indeed, proud of their little place and the great food they serve. A true testament to its success, the place can be very busy around lunch time but you probably won't wait too long for a table. In cooler weather (indeed, anytime), also be sure to sample their homemade turkey chili, prepared throughout the year. It is so popular that they sell out quickly every day. Cups and bowls are available. A selection of fresh muffins is also offered daily. N.B.: This place can be a bit hard to locate the first time around: It is located in a small strip of shops in front of the Black Cow, adjacent to a municipal parking lot.
Remember to purchase a parking sticker.
