The sandwich was great and the museum was great. Obviously the museum is corporate back patting, but it was good history and fun to see. I'll bring my family when they come..

Great location. Reasonable price. Variety of foods/breads/beverages on ground floor - counter order, quick service, self-seating. Great view, menu order table service, albeit higher prices upstairs. Best bread. Interesting self guided tour starts upstairs. Highly recommended!
