It’s almost 12:30pm and the countdown is on. While the range of options for lunch fare in Greenwich is wide and fat from sparse the one thing that is always good to know is where to go an amazing hunger quenching sandwich. With a personal affinity and admiration for an awesome sandwich it wasn’t easy to pick just three places but for the sake of time and space we narrowed it down.
From the avenue to Railroad Avenue and Old Greenwich our GG Go-To list for the best sandwiches caters to every sandwich lover out there.
Tucked behind the busy corner of Meli Melo and located in a small walk in/walk out space across from Diane’s Books, Bruckner’s has a variety of healthy options for the GG (gent or girl) on the go. Wraps go soups, salads to smoothies – Bruckner’s always has a refreshing menu that satisfies any hunger bug.
Note to self: the only con about their location is parking so find a spot on the ave before you walk down around the corner 🙂
2. Olive Branch
A commuters dream and a locals answer to every craving Olive Branch is conveniently located right next door to the Railroad Avenue entrance to the train station. With an early morning opening Olive Branch offers everything from breakfast to lunch with the perfect combination of healthy and not so health conscience options on their menu. An extra perk? Tons of space to pick a table and hunker down while waiting for the next Metro North and early hours always help for those of us commuters.
3. Alpen Pantry
Located right in the middle of Old Greenwich town on Arcadia Road this last but certainly not least top Sandwich Joint pick of Alpen Pantry admittedly has my heart. Fully equipped with a menu of sandwiches with names like Gobbler, Russian, Beef Eater and Forester, just to name a few among many other choices, the menu is a true reflection of the owners passion for Alpen and it shows in every way. From the way the sandwich is wrapped and put in the bag to the collection of hot sauces lined up throughout the shop Alpen Pantry really does the trick for every sandwich loving GG out there.
