I always make sure to stop here and support a local small business. They make the best sandwiches around, hands down.

They have lots of sandwich options, not including the specials and the option to build your own sandwich. We stopped for lunch, and it was just the right size. The chicken salad was rather bland, so I wouldn't recommend that. They have a small seating area inside. We sat outside on the patio. Nice for people watching while you eat... More

If I had the money, I'd eat lunch here every day. Lots of locals (includes me) go here, which is what drew us in when we moved here. Sandwiches are huge, but they'll gladly make you a half sandwich. Homemade bread, sliced when you order your sandwich -- the sourdough is to die for! Lots of interesting sandwiches and they'll... More

I work in downtown Burlington and this is my favorite sandwich shop. Delicious food with reasonable prices. The Total Meltdown sandwich is my personal favorite but I have never gotten a bad sandwich here! Every once in awhile I go to a different sandwich shop and regret it. No others can compare to Top of the Block!

While visiting Burlington, we were looking for a place to have a sandwich and a drink. At the very top of Church Street we found this little sandwich shop. First, the selection of breads and sandwich options were off the charts! If there was something you wanted to change on your choice the staff was quick to say "sure we... More

While there are many cafes to choose from along Church Street Marketplace, we choose this deli type place as we really needed a quick lunch. We had a tour bus to catch and didn't have time to sit at one of the other cafes as they all looked very busy. This place fit the bill as it wasn't crowded and... More

Eating indoors? Please take a seat in the hallway because that's where our indoor tables are located. I found it a little distracting while eating lunch with people walking by the table. One can eat outdoors also. The sandwiches were good and the staff friendly. Prices are pretty good too.

Sandwiches are crafted on homemade bread. Thick, fluffy, and satisfying. Prices are roughly $4-8 depending on size and which sandwich you get. We stopped by on a whim but definitely recommend this place if you're craving a nice sandwich in downtown Burlington.

Great menu for breakfast and lunch. You can eat there or get it to go. Very nice folks behind the counter who respect the food, the customers and the place where they work.
