Great fresh sandwiches, what more can you want. There was a good choice of fillings, and the prices were reasonable.

Wonderful sandwiches, all fresh ingredients. But the Pastel Crema was the best food I have ever put in my mouth. This shop is just west of the theater district.

This was one of our favorite places in NY. The food was great, and the owner went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and happy. The pastel was great! So great in fact, that we purchased two to go and had them as part of our breakfast the next day (and I almost never order/eat dessert.) What I... More

We went here on a tour and OMG the meatball sandwich was incredible, best I have eaten anywhere in the world. We also tried the pastel or where I come from Portuguese tarts, delicious warm custard goodness.

Went with a group. Most had a sandwich and said it was by good. We had a pastel. I've eaten the originals in Portugal and I've got to say these were the real deal.

This is a small place with a few tables but the sandwiches were excellent. Four of us went and we each had something different. The nice lady took her time and explained it all to us and each of us enjoyed our sandwich. Prices were reasonable for NYC. Would stop in again!

So i went here after reading a newspaper review of the place. It is just a few blocks from my work so I walked over one day during lunch. It is a small location and their menu is along their wall, in color codes, one color for meatless, one color for meat, and one color that has egg. You can... More

I had a great sandwich, good coffee and an exceptional pastel. Very friendly service. Best for take away, but quite ok to eat at one of the four tables as well. Highly recommended.

I am a native of NY/NJ, but I have lived in Oregon for the past 21 years. I try to return to NYC every year for a visit and to seek out new and wonderful places to eat. My "find" for 2016 is CITY SANDWICH! Know that this is a very casual, walk-in, order at the counter establishment. There are... More

We have just been in this place as a part of a Food on foot tour and we loved it. The sandwiches are the best, fresh ingredients and super tasty, and shout out the the cashiers! They're the most kind and smiling I've met in New York so far. Try it!

Staying in West Village

Neighbourhood Profile
West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the West Village is one of the city’s most coveted addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture, this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan. Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.
