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.

Sandwiches are tasty, huge and the side orders are also more than sufficient. Great fast service if you can get there in time to score a table.

Delicious food, great atmosphere, awesome service! Kids food was very reasonable priced and on kid friendly plates too! We loved being able to pick our own type of bread & plenty of options. Only 1 bathroom. If you make this your first stop into town, find another place for your family of 6 to use the restroom. Other than that... More

The drive-thru is a little slow but I'm glad we have that option! They have a good selection of sandwiches. I think they should have more soup options.

This restaurant has very good food. Homemade breads and pastries and the sandwiches have a good amount of meat. The only downfall is the lack of parking because it's in downtown Olympia, but well worth the trip.

I love the turkey and swiss with pineapple on jalapeño bread. The burgers are really good too. They make their own bread...it's simply great.
