In just a couple of weeks, one of Philly’s lunch spots, Matt & Marie’s, will be opening its second location at 118 South 18th Street.
In addition to the Italian sandwiches, salads, bagels, and pastries the flagship shop on 18th and Arch Streets serves, the new Matt & Marie’s will also have fresh ravioli, stuffed shells, and baked Campanelle pasta, along with four house-made sauces to choose from.
All of Matt & Marie’s food is either made fresh in house or picked up early in the morning, like the bagels from South Street Bagels, and the pastries from La Colombe.

Rooster Soup Company, the Federal Donuts and Broad Street Ministry backed soup restaurant that ran a successful and highly publicized Kickstarter campaign in the summer of 2014 has announced its location. The soup and sandwich restaurant will open at 1526 Sansom Street, in the former home of Sansom Street Kabob House.
The concept behind Rooster Soup is to turn Federal Donuts’ unused chicken backs into chicken stock, soup and gravy – transforming what would be food waste into profits that will go directly to Broad Street Ministry, helping the organization to further their work in providing meals and services to vulnerable and homeless Philadelphians.

Now if they’ll just sell those cinnamon mini-donuts everywhere. They might just be my favorite of all their donuts.

In case you haven’t noticed, everyone is going back to school right now. Colleges, high schools, all those other schools full of tiny people with giant backpacks. And in order to smooth the transition between the carefree days of summer and all this nonsense with books and #2 pencils, Jake’s Sandwich Board in University City is offering some killer back-to-school deals (and something to do with some guy with a goofy hat who’s coming to town at the end of September).
Cheap sandwiches, right this way
Philly is very much a sandwich city: pork roll sandwiches, cheesesteaks, egg and cheese sandwiches from food carts. Sandwiches rule this city. But the best case scenario with most of Philly’s most popular sandwiches is that you eat one and then instantly fall into a food-coma-induced nap before you even have a chance to regret all the damage you’ve just done to your diet. And forget about eating one in the middle of the work day (because food coma, hello). Just forget it.
So, in celebration of National Sandwich Month (big ups to our friends over at Foobooz for letting us know this is a thing that people actually celebrate), we give you this: Five Philly lunch sandwiches that won’t send you into a food coma or a shame spiral and, best of all, won’t give you an ounce of post-meal regret. Check ‘em out below then put them on your must-eat list.
