Tip: The manager says between 12 noon and 2 pm SUNdeVICH is swamped, and on Saturdays a line could be wrapped down the alley.
Cute, clean, nice little sandwich shop.
I had a little trouble finding it because the entrance is down an alley off of 9th street. I had the ISFAHAN sandwich: soufflé (spinach, mushroom, walnuts, barberry), tzatziki. It was tasty. I would have preferred a multi-grain type bread. I don't know that this was a choice.
Currently there are over 20 sandwich choices and according to the manager sometimes there are special sandwiches. I also tried the curried (smooth) potato salad (curried potatoes, sautéed onions, tzatziki), which could have been outstanding except that it was too salty. Perhaps I got a bad batch but they could use half the amount of salt in this salad and let more of the other flavors come through. After I had eaten I noticed they had mushroom medley soup. I love soup but was full. The very friendly manager let me try a taste of the soup. I liked it and got some to go. The soup was quite tasty, it was enough for two bowls but again less salt would be good.
I will definitely go back to SUNdeVICH to try the Cairo, Capri and Zurich sandwiches. And yes, I will give that unique curried potato salad another try.
I recommend this place for casual dining in, it is small with a few tables and bar-type seating. Late evening there seem to be a healthy amount of carry-out orders.
