Located within walking distance of the White House, Breadline is a local lunchtime favorite. They serve a variety of unique and freshly made sandwiches, soups and salads that rotate depending on the day of the week. You can check their website for the daily menu:http://www.breadline.com/
Some of my personal favorites: the spicy peanut soup, served on Tuesdays, the smoked salmon sandwich and the madrange ham & swiss, available almost daily, and the tomato and mozzarella salad, which is served on Fridays.
Price wise this place runs around $10 a person, but you get an ample amount of food. The sandwiches are really good sized-my favorite ham & swiss is served on literally half a baguette! I frequently go, buy a soup and sandwich and can easily make three lunches out of that.
A few tips: this place is crazy popular, so plan to get there before about 11:30 if you want to avoid long lines. They do a good job of wrapping/bagging food, so you can grab food early and save it to eat later with no problem.
Once the place gets crowded, its hard to tell that there are multiple lines going on inside. And to make things worse, they keep futzing with the set up, probably because of how crowded and confusing it can be. Just know to look for the signs for where to go to order a salad, because it is a different line than the soup/sandwich area.
They sometimes sell out of popular items (like my beloved spicy peanut soup). So if there is something you are dead set on, either go early, or call to see if they still have it.
