Little unassuming place right in the heart of downtown. Interior looks like a typical diner. Ordered the half tuna sandwich on jalapeño bread and half Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was nothing special but the tuna and bread were delicious! Definitely drooled over the dessert case as well! Server was extremely welcoming and friendly.

Large variety of sandwiches and excellent home made soups. Lots of govn't offices nearby so tends to be busy at noon. Also has drive through service..Right between the two one way streets on fifth.

I have had the best French dip on the 3 occasions I have visited this shop. The portions are generous and the wait staff are attentive and pleasant. The prices are very reasonable, much better than fast food places for inferior food!

5th Avenue Sandwich Shop is my younger son's favourite place for a turkey sandwich and a frequently requested stop...even though it's over 20 miles away from us! The turkey is true roasted turkey, the bread they bake themselves, and the price is great for the quality - $8! I love the chicken salad and egg salad..it's so hard to find... More

While this restaurant isn't much for ambiance, it makes up for it with service and food. Great sandwiches and salads. Their house made potato chips are yummy.

This place was great! Everyone was very nice the whole time we were there. I ordered the Hot Oly and it was great. They also bake the bread fresh and have homemade pies. I have found my new sandwich place.

There's a lot of hype about this place but I wasn't impressed by anything that I've eaten there. Wally's on the Westside beats these guys.
