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 lunch time. 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.
