Busy, active and pretty darn good. Our office all goes to Pinky's for sandwiches, the best in town. Not quick, not inexpensive but worth both. A good place to pick up a nice lunch - their catering is great too.

I stopped in at Pinky's on a Tuesday afternoon for a quick sandwich to bring in the car heading to Saint Johnsbury. There was no line and the sandwich-making staff were super friendly and helped me pick a sandwich that I liked. Good selection of sandwiches, chips, drinks and I'm sure other things that I was not looking for. I... More

Great place for sandwiches. No place to sit, however there are plenty of places to sit down the street. Kids enjoyed it too.

We stopped for lunch today and ordered a Reuben, Gobbler and a CRB. The staff was friendly and helpful. Sandwiches were made to order and delicious. We will return the next time we are in the area.

It's a little hole in the wall with handbags for sale in the window. We had the exact address, but walked past it a couple of times thinking it was a second-hand store. Ordered a roast beef sandwich. It was spectacular! Moist and delicious on the inside, crunchy toasted sourdough on outside. This is on my list of must-eats when... More

This is The Best sandwich shop in town. My favorite by far is The Cowboy - roast beef. Horseradish mayo ..... Absolutely delicious! This is a very popular spot in town, so be prepared to wait through the workweek, but it is definitely worth it!

A wonderful mix of sandwiches, soups, and sales. Very creative, and you still can "build your own." The lunch crowd can be very busy even though they have three sandwiches chefs feverishly at work! But it is worth it. As examples, here is the list of today's (Wednesday July 29, 2015) specials: Wednesday 29 Specials Soups: (cold) Fresh Pea &... More

Pinky's is a deceptive little place. I walked by a hundred times before venturing in for lunch...can't believe it took me so long to discover this gem. They have a terrific sandwich lineup, and happily make any changes you ask for. I'm completely hooked on their nice, crispy BLT... with cheese! Terrific sandwiches, friendly and fast counter service, five stars!

And a very good one, made by asian cook. No service at all: order, pay, grab, eat, go. One of only places that offered seating outside.

Super good salads, soups are very good, especially their bisque. Lines are often bad but you can walk up to counter for a soup and not wait. I suggest they take on a bigger space, add a person to make sandwiches, and a second register cause you can wait 20 or more minutes, and during a lunch break, with your... More
