You will wind up paying $12 for a peanut butter sandwich and beverage, but it will be tasty and cute. It won't fill you up, but you will want to come back and try other fun sandwiches.The sandwiches all run at about $6, but you can buy a jar of their proprietary peanut butters for the same price and make your own if you're not too coddled. Their peanut butter is also sold in city supermarkets and is sometimes on sale, so keep an eye out. Try the cookie dough surprise sandwich if you want to get crazy. Their white chocolate peanut butter will definitely make you more protein-conscious as you seek any excuse to eat spoonfuls of peanut butter as a meal.

I had heard from everyone "youve gotta try this place!" but when i finally got around to ordering a peanut butter cup sandwich i was disappointed by the small size, inappropriate bread and high cost. The bread was really hard, and didn't make for a good peanut butter sandwich (which typically has soft bread that complements the creamy peanut butter). It was $6, too! it came with chips and, oddly, 2 carrot slices. it should have been about $4 for what they gave me. The peanut butter was really good, but the bread kind of ruined it and it was just too small for the cost! Go here and see for yourself, because it IS a rather interesting concept, even if it costs too much.

Not only was the service poor (forgot an order and it wasn't that crowded to warrant a long wait), the pb&j sandwich was slopped together. It was a mess to eat which ended up on the kids clothes, hands, hair etc. The bread was so thin that it didn't hold the peanutbutter or the jelly in the sandwich. The taste was just fine - nothing to brag about. One doesn't mind spending $$ on a piece of nostalgia, but poke your head in and maybe just buy some of their take-home products in the back.

Many great concoctions that bring back childhood memories...fluffernuffer, peanut butter cup, as well as the elvis. Good service here, and can take home pb goodies including jars of their pb. Though, the pb can also be found in Whole Foods and some other specialty food shops.

I visited this place with my family. Staff there was really friendly and helpful, and the food was all very delicious. Only downside is that the place can get cramped. Not that big of a problem though, since Washington Square Park is down the block if you opt for takeout.

This place was so cute and really brought me back to my childhood. With each order they give you carrot sticks and potato chips on the side! I didn't even really notice those, though, because my sandwich was absolutely amazing. Their creative combinations with peanut butter are so delicious, and then even their basic items (without peanut butter) are great too. Also - the jars of peanut butter you can buy to take are SO good! The cinnamon raisin swirl is like heaven in a jar. I definitely recommend this delicious place!

While visiting NYC with daughter and granddaughters, one day when the kids had been so good to traipse all over doing what the grown-ups wanted to do, we took the girls to this restaurant for dinner. It was great! The three adults had the sampler, and our favorite was the White Chocolate Peanut Butter. The non-adventurous children liked their plain peanut butter and jelly on white bread.
