When I’m looking for a light lunch during the week, The Steeping Room’s soup and tea sandwich combo for $7.75 is my go-to!

Foodheads, Austin


FoodHeads has easily become one of my favorite lunch spots. Handcrafted sandwiches & hearty soups like butternut squash with sage and chicken tortilla (my fave).

What to Order: Half sandwich and cup of soup is only $9 during lunchtime. Get the hot pastrami and the daily soup.

Pro Tip: Ask for reduced blackberry balsamic vinaigrette or on-the-side on the veggie sandwiches. It’s way too greasy.

I couldn’t do a sandwich round up without including the ultimate bake shop in Austin that supplies the best bread to all the restaurants. Everything at Easy Tiger is really good, but I was surprised by how amazing their turkey sandwich is!
