We stopped by on our way to the train taking us home. I had a yummy jamon Serrano with fig spread and manchego cheese on a bretzel. It was good but the bretzel wasn't the right bread for the sandwich -too heavy. Topped off with a bag of chips and a drink it was a good, albeit pricey @ $15... More

I keep trying this restaurant with the hopes of loving it, but I keep thinking it's just okay. This time, they were out of pretzel bread(the reason I went), and the bread I got was kind of old and hard to bite into. The sandwich itself was okay - smoked salmon - accompanied by a pickle and chips. I ate... More

Wandered in for a quick bite to eat before a wedding and had delicious sandwiches and soup. All the ingredients looked fresh and wonderful and tasted great!

We got lunch delivered from this place and the sandwiches they had all sounded really good but the execution was lacking. I tried two different types of sandwiches and they were both WAY over-salted. This was especially baffling because one of them was serrano ham and manchego which shouldn't need much if any salt to begin with. Just sloppy execution... More

I'm not a big fan of sandwiches but I really like this place. Quality ingredients, unique combinations and careful preparation make for a great lunch.

Sandwich selection is good and their breads are good and unique. There's not much seating, so grab a bagful of food and beverages and head toward the lake. Be prepared for a very serious service staff who will not hesitate to correct mispronounciations.

Lots of choices with good vegan/vegetarian options. Try the pretzel bread. Everything is organic. Doesn't serve wine or beer but this is a quick spot for lunch if you are in a hurry.

We always go out of our way to have Hannah's Bretzel. You have to get it on the pretzel baguette for the full experience. Sergio's special is filled with specialty meats, cheeses and mango chutney. It's a perfect blend.

I travel to Chicago at least once a year for work, and always look forward to getting to go to Hannah's again (it is right around the corner from my hotel). It's one of my favorite sandwich shops in the good ol USA. This place is an example of "you pay for what you get" - is it Subway prices?... More

The Hannah Bretzel on Clinton is not on this list and should be. It's across from Presidential Towers in West Loop a hot spot! The breakfast wetzels are delish and filling for 4 hours. For lunch I love the Thanksgiving 365 sammie, the serrano ham sammie and of course surprisingly the vegtable bomb are outstanding and so filling I can... More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours.
