I decided to try 'witchcraft after hearing my coworkers raving about it. The goat cheese sandwich is very good, but not worth the $9--better to buy your own goat cheese and make a sandwich. The oatmeal is also good, but again, overpriced ($5).

After reading the earlier reviews of ‘wichcraft, I was skeptical to try its 8th street location. However, after reading someone’s review about going down to au bon pain for a cheaper sandwich I knew the previous reviewers didn’t know what ‘wichcraft was all about. I went this past weekend and it was one of the most amazing sandwiches- I even ordered for delivery yesterday and today! The Sicilian tuna, roasted turkey and the meatloaf sandwiches are three of the best things I have ever tasted! Quality lunch with fresh ingredients for 10$ is a STEAL!!! Also try their soups! NO CREAM in any of them and super delicious! And the peanut butter cookie is the best cookie in the city! I wouldn't trus thte previous reviewers-TRY it for yourself!

I was happy when this place opened near my work but still can't get over paying 11 bucks every time I go to get a sandwich. That and the staff always looks like they don't want to be there. That aside, the online delivery system works well

I've been wanting to try the sandwiches here ever since I read the menu. Truthfully, the roasted turkey sandwich I tried was quite good. But not worth $10! As another reviewer said, you can go to Au Bon Pain and get a (very) similar sandwich for 1/2 the price. And the service was too nonchalant. Decor is nice - I like the magazines - but it also took too long to make. I'll go somewhere else next time. My "buy 12 sandwiches and the next one is free" card is useless. I won't spend $120 to get ONE free sandwich.

The sandwhiches are alright, but it usually takes too damn long to make one. The prices are just laughable...so stupid. Especially when you can walk half a block down 8th to au bon pain and get the same yuppie nonsense for half the price. Overall, pretty decent sandwhichs but not worth the price, but then again what isn't overpriced in this city??

I think the sandwiches and baked goods are really excellent here, the restaurant itself is handsome and sleek, and the servers generally pretty friendly. The thing is, they've got a ridiculous all-online system for delivery that is not very good. All the orders have to go in through the website, but there's no call-back number if there's a problem; you can call the main number, but most of the time you'll end up stuck in some kind of voicemail tree. I can understand the desire to streamline ordering, and when it works it's fine, but the lack of options for customer follow-up makes it completely an also-ran. Particularly because the system for paying by credit card breaks down all the time. All they'd need to do is include a REAL contact number on the receipt you can print up at the end of the ordering process. Still, great sandwiches. To bad they make it so hard to get what you want.

I had read a lot about the place, and really wanted to give it a try. I went into this location two different times and both times came to the same conclusion: it’s just not worth it. Honestly, the sandwiches I tried were both quite good, I had the Roast Beef one time and the Roasted Pork the second. It’s the service that’s not good. I don’t mind paying $10 for a sandwich, and I’d be willing to pay twice that much if the service was on par. They seem to hire people that exude the aura that they’re doing you a favor. Like they’re too good to be working in a sandwich shop, and I’m supposed to be grateful they’re taking the time to take my order. If you don’t mind spending the money and getting the poor treatment then the food might be worth it, but I’d rather send the message that I don’t want to pay above market price and act like I’m not appreciated.
