    Yum yum

    Wow what a treat ... just finished my first sandwich from this little hole in the wall, never knew it was there. I think it's relatively new though. Anyway just got the turkey, brie sandwich with pear and dill. the ingredients went so well together! i can't tell you, so tasty. And the bread was fresh and perfect texture. Huge sandwich all for $6 ... definitely going to be coming back. The wait was only about 5-10 minutes around 1:30pm.

    Gastronomical Liz...Come on Now.

    This is a mom and pop shop of some guys selling sandwiches. You want service go to a restaurant where they automatically add gratuity. These guys try their best to keep up and you give them too much crap for 2 guys handling lunch hordes on a busy day.

    A bit of a wait

    ...for a sandwich that left me curiously wanting more. I ordered a very simple sandwich that contained goat cheese, cucumbers, vinaigrette, and red onions. However, it took longer to make than meaty sandwiches ordered by people after me! I was quite frustrated, and annoyed at what seemed to be a lack of organization (the man taking the orders kept on repeating them back to people, only to be met with, "No, I ordered the (blank)." When I sat down on a bench to eat, I was glad that the sandwich was large, but still not wowed enough to completely forgive service.

    Great Sandwiches!

    Right around the corner, fantastic for a quick lunch and really reasonable. I prefer the veggie sandwiches over the meat because they always seem to be the most fresh. Also, go when the guy is making sandwiches, the girl's aren't as good! Overall - highly recommended lunch spot in overpriced SoHo.

    My Fave Lunch Spot

    I am so sad that my office is moving soon cause I am going to miss the gang at Crosby Connection. Of course, I'll miss the sandwiches too! My review... The service is always fantastic. You just gotta remember this is not a fast food assembly line and that's what makes it special. It is all about the human interaction, the little Mom n Pop shops, not the big chain shops! Slow down. Enjoy the break from work. Chat with the person in the line next to you. Breath in. Breath out. The guy who makes your sandwiches is named Joey and his assistant is Johnny. Now that you know their names, you are friends! That's the way it is there. No drone asking you if you want fries with that! The food is great. Sure there are the odd days when they may not have your favorite ingredient or maybe they fogot to put something on but that's life. It's not always perfect but when it is, which is 98% of the time, it is utterly scrumptuous! As for value! Where can you get a massive sandwich for $6 in downtown Manhattan served with a smile from Johnny! Atmosphere, well ok, for what it lacks in atmosphere, Joey and Johnny make up for it in charisma! Bon Appetit!

    Don't believe the hype...

    I tried this place for the first time and I am thoroughly disappointed. I got the Mozzie and while there was plenty of cheese and tomato there was almost none of the other ingredients. A couple of tiny shreds of basil and it seems they completely forgot the oil and vinegar. The sandwich was bland at best. Maybe their other choices are better.

    Still the best Value, but...

    I've been getting from them for the past four years, most of it a a student. It's still the best value AND the best sandwiches you can get in the city EXCEPT the quality has gone down since Susie stopped working there and making the sandwiches. Now they are a little smaller, a little less generous in how they are assembled. Also, the "honey mustard" is disgusting, and I don't think it even resembles mustard. Insist on the deli mustard (which they now seem to frequently be out of.) It's still well worth your money and time, though. You can't beat the Crosby Connection.
