Peanut Butter & Co
Posted by Eagles fan on 04/26/2009
No doubt this place is expensive for a sandwich that can be made at home for pennies. Still, it's damn good. I had the Elvis with bacon, believe the hype it's really good. Came with chips and carrots. Really good all around. ' Now for the bad, I tried the PB and J shake cause it sounded unique. It tasted like they just put in peanut butter ice cream, which is good but I was expecting something more unique. Decor was nice, a little clubhouse like. The one guy there was overworked to death, I felt bad for him. Overall, good for a try, I'd only go back if I was in the area.

I have regularly visited this place for several years now even trailing a party of 20 people in with me once and they didn't kick us out and welcomed the smiles we brought. This place is a must if you are a fluffnuter fan like me. having grown up with a fluffnutter in my lunchbox everyday as a child it is a must go to place for food once in a while. The prices are what they are. it is NYC and it is the village. What is REALLY nice is that there ARE options fr regular foods like tuna/chicken salad sandwiches and fluffnutter milkshakes that can also be made with soymilk and such. Even peanut butter taster dish with celery/carrot sticks/apples/bananas. And they ADORE kids and strollers and families. And I so love their peanut butter I take it home everytime. You can even get a U-bet chocolate milk :) I recommend it highly.

I went in knowing I would be paying $7-$8 for a peanut butter sandwich. I thought it wouldn't bother me, being all about the experience and all. It was cute inside, tiny, but cute. My boyfriend ordered a cup of coffee, they told him that they were going to nuke it being that the brew had been sitting out, so take that however you want. Anyway, the sandwich was good. I got the fluffernutter, smooth, with white bread. But it came to $10 with a coke, for a sandwich I could have made at home for pennies on the dollar. I really wanted to go, so for that it was worth it I guess. I will not be going back.

I expected great things from this place. I LOVE peanut butter and with all their fun sounding menu options and peanut butter flavors (they have white chocolate peanut butter, cinnamon peanut butter.....) it just wasn't that good. It wasn't terrible but, not recommended. Cute place with old fashioned decor and cafeteria style seating but, if you go stick with the ice cream and stay away from the PB!

Stopped in for lunch with my teenage children. We got the Elvis (no bacon) ,the regular old PB&J and a PB&J milkshake. All three were really good - a bit messy but yummy. I agree with others that it's probably a bit expensive for what it is - but it is a cool little place and I'd probably go again if I were in the area.

For what it is worth, I love peanut butter and tend to live on PB + nutella sandwiches for the most part. Because of that and good things I had heard about this place (and its proximity to work), I thought I'd give it a go. It's not bad. But it isn't worth the cash either. When there, I ordered the "Seinfield"...a hard hard bagel topped with Pb, cinnamon, and honey. The idea is good and one that I will try at home, but for $6 or something...? I could probably buy all the ingredients and eat this for a month for the same price! True, the meal comes with a bag of chips and a few carrot sticks, but that still does not justify the cost in my book. The place itself is small, dingy, and crowded, service average for a counter-order place. They do have a bunch of things for sale if you like their type of PB, and also have cookies and stuff that looked pretty good. Worth going to see some of the things they come up with, something you might try at home later, but ultimately not worth the money for the meal.

Like the last reviewer, I heard about this on the internet. Brought my family of seven from Kansas to try it out. Loved it. Collectively, we had the Elvis (marshmallow cream and honey), Fluffernutter (marshmallow cream), BLT (like it sounds), The Heat is On (chicken, pineapple, and special Thai hot sauce), Cookie Dough (cream chees and chocolate chips), and regular old PB&J. Naturally they all had peanut butter. We also ordered a few of their quaint bottled sodas. Everyone loved their sandwiches and the total lunch tab was only $55. We liked it so well that we came back on our last day in NYC to get another cookie dough!
