We stopped in to grab some takeout lunch. A grilled cheese sandwich and a salad. I had the 'Very Vegetarian' salad which was a generous serving with plenty of different fresh and healthy ingredients (egg, cucumbers, sunflower seeds, celery, olives, cheese, onion, alfalfa, chick peas, artichoke and radish). Everything was freshly prepared and served with a smile.

My daughter called to place an order from Denver wanting a tray to feed 12 people of sandwiches. They told her she needed to order two trays because one tray only fed 6 people. She paid over 100 dollars for two trays because she was told this was the best place. The day of the wedding I picked up the... More

Small shop but love the sandwiches. Their Sunnybird is their signature but I especially love the Nutty Chicken salad with a cup of soup. They make their own bread which is always fresh but if you try to limit your carb intake you can also get this as a salad. Um um good.

Known for their "Sunnybird," (which my wife gets each time), I don't think you can go wrong with any of their sandwiches. Their fresh bread is the secret!

Fresh and hearty and healthy all at he same time. Great homemade soups like grandmom used to make. Sweet delights if you dare to have dessert. Great for a quick lunch on a busy workday.

I love lunch here - they are not ordinary! I get the chunky chicken salad sandwich - fresh, thick cut homemade bread, grapes and sprouts. There is seating outside to watch the people go by. Everything is very fresh everyday!

I have eaten at Lonni's many times over the years. Their bread is freshly made which is the mark of a good sandwich shop. They also make vegetarian sandwiches etc. Great place.

This is a nice little sandwich shop in downtown Saint Petersburg with a great menu and delicious food! I enjoyed the soup and half sandwich lunch special. I chose a cup of chicken chili with my reuben and enjoyed them both. Especially the sandwich. It was the perfect size and the balance between the corned beef, sauerkraut, and dressing was... More

All of the food here is wonderful! They fresh bake their own bread for the sandwiches everyday. Some may consider the sandwiches pricey but they are large enough to share for a lite lunch and contents are of the best quality. The staff are very kind and courteous and happy to answer questions. The kitchen is in full view so... More
