I love, love, love, this sandwich shop. The UES between the 80s/90s is in desperate need of quality, clean and good restaurants. This shop fits the bill. A sweet group of people who work here. Food is really good. A bit different from standard fare. Fresh. It's a good shop.

I stopped into Brown Cup to grab a quick breakfast and a coffee. Everyone behind the counter was speaking spanish and as I looked at the menu boards, they just stared at me instead of asking if I needed help. Since it seemed clear that I was not to order from them, I stepped up to the register and started to order. The girl raised her eyebrow at me and said "You order over there?" Like I was retarded. I apologized and headed back to the counter but not before she blatantly rolled her eyes at me. I ordered (with some difficulty since I couldn't understand what the guy was saying), then went back to Hostile Cashier Girl and then saw that I was just short of the $8 card minimum and I had no cash. Apparently I was delusional to hope she'd give me a break - she rolled her eyes again (this time to my face) and pointed out the card minimum. Rather than buying a bottle of water to push myself over, I told her to forget it, walked out and around the block to argo tea where I was happy to pay twice as much for essentially the same thing. I'm usually pretty tolerant of bad or indifferent service. I'm from New Jersey. But this girl pissed me off, and I would gladly walk the extra block in heels and pay twice the price than experience that attitude again.

The sandwich selection here is quite awesome. The actual execution of the food is very, very good too - I've ordered a few different sandwiches, and each has had a unique bread, filling, dressing etc. Quality of ingredients totally satisfies. Even their coffee is great. But most surprising has been the delivery. Usually when I get delivery from places, I can sit down and expect to have accomplished a decent amount of work before the food arrives. With this place, I've consistently been jarred by the doorbell literally minutes after ordering. It's like their delivery guy uses teleportation or something.

Their food is great and probably the cheapest on 8th ave! Perfect for quick breakfast on the go, or sit in. Nice, simple little place, chill atmosphere. Coffee's excellent.

I used to order at least once a week from here. However in the last month i have stopped. .delivery takes forever. They bring the wrong thing and often take a VERY long time to get your correct food back to you. I will no longer be ordering from here.

The sandwiches here are so good and interesting. The food is fresh. Beware the salad bar, if you order roo many ingredients you'll end up with a 3 lb salad, they give you more than the average salad bar. The onl;y thing they need is better desserts but a tasty cup all in all.
