Best customer service! Sammy and staff make some delicious sandwiches. They cater, too!
This is my favorite spot in Northside. Great food, great prices. The barristas are awesome. I love to support this cafe cause its Mpls grown and owned.
Great place. My favorite is the chai tea latte and the chicken salad sand wich. Sammy is great as well as the barristas. I go here at least once a week.
I've been looking for a really good soy chai tea latte, and this place has it! I like the environment, and although I haven't had the opportunity to try any of their food yet, I'm looking forward to it.
This is a very good place to get a good sandwich and soup. Friendly atmosphere place clean. Of the menu items looked good to try it.
Love it A+
I eat here all the time i love this place and have recommended it to all my friends. Sammy has such a bright personality as well as his staff but, the food speaks for itself just awesome.
Great food very presentable and tasteful. Professional warm atmosphere and friendly people LOVE IT!!!
An important establishment in this community...I'd love to see it do well! Their Hot Turkey and Pastrami sandwiches are the best!
The soul food selections are great.
This is an amazing laid back place. The food is amazing and the customer service is great. Just need more space and an extra register. Other than that. This place gets all my money when I come to Minneapolis.
The almond milk mocha was perfect and the service was friendly and fast. I'll be going back and I will be recommending it to friends.
Great food great prices
Very invited is the best way to describe the first time I walked through the door. The most friendly staff and very easy going but serious about your order. I am happy to see a neighborhood coffee shop in this area.
Great small business.
I love the coziness at Sammy's. He is very personable, and a warm atmosphere. I am very pleased with this place. You meet great people here. I really like the fact that the staff take pride in their food. It's a winner. I really like that you can rate the service, and the follow up email Sammy sends you. Tha was awesome. In addition, I really appreciate the face I can order online and schedule to pick up later!
Amazing food and service. They're involved in the community too.
I love this place. Good atmosphere.
Best eatery on the northside hands down
This is a Black owned eatery services amazing smoothies and sandwiches. The roasted chicken sandwich is delicious. I love the atmosphere and its a beautiful thing to support Black businesses.
The customer service was wonderful, but the Mocha with an EXTRA shot of espresso-Still tasted like watered down chocolate milk, and the gentleman I was with just got a black coffee, of which contained about an inch of coffee grounds on the bottom!! If they improve the QUALITY of their coffee, and train new staff (HOW TO MAKE COFFEE WITHOUT GROUNDS, AND INVEST IN A HIGHER QUALITY ESPRESSO MACHINE (THE LIFE-BLOOD) OF ANY SUCCESSFUL COFFEE SHOP, THEY COULD BE AMAZING.
I love officiant there because we have real discussions with the staff, who are so warm & intelligent. Great atmosphere, one of my faves.
They have a very homely and cozy atmosphere. Their food is homemade and delicious
Great vibe, cute place, incredible staff. And PIE.
Great breakfast sandwich
Great place for one of those one on one coffee shop meetings! Soups and sandwiches are awesome! Great breakfast sandwiches too! Great to have a black owned business with class, style and love for our community I can support!
A tasty sandwich & coffee shop, locally owned and employing local folks. It can take a little while to get your food sometimes, but it's all good and I love supporting community-owned establishments. Treat yourself to a slice of their homemade pies!
The owner makes you feel like a regular even when its your first time. The sandwichs are 2nd to none and the soups of the week are always delicious and a great idea. 10/10 would recommend.
Awesome local vibe. The chai latte was one of the best I've ever had and the turkey sandwich was great too.
The Turkey Pastrami sandwich is wonderful. Great bread, tender pastrami. Everything was super. Soup of the day was a beef and rice soup, with deep rich flavors and lots of texture.
What a great place! The sandwich and coffee were wonderful! The staff were fantastic, helpful, courteous, friendly, and thoughtful (suggested things I would've forgotten). The atmosphere was comfortable and had an enticing community feel.
Great food, service and prices. This is my go-to place in the area. The sweet potato pie alone is worth a visit. The tasty sandwiches are an excellent bonus!
Enjoy going there a very good places to go for lunch. The service is very good too . Or stop by and grab a smoothie or coffee. Love it .
Having just moved to the area I needed a local place where I can get great coffee and food, but also feel welcome. This wonderful eatery is incredible, and the staff are so friendly! Also, their breakfast sandwich is the best around, made with REAL EGG!!! So thankful for this new connection
One of the few places along West Broadway - Breaking Bread included, that serves healthy and tasty food. Great neighborhood vibe and affordable! Sammy's is destined for bigger and better!
Great food great service the best soup ever
This place was awesome, even before the remod. Now, it's even better. The food has always been incredibly well done. Now, the ambience brings Sammy's together so we'll. Cheers!!
Always a GR8T service experience with good food 😅
Great sandwiches and homemade soups! Turkey pastrami is a winner. Very nice atmosphere
Great. New Facilities. Nice Decor. Friendly Staff
There for a morning event, the service was great. Nice place to hang out.
Great food and service! Got to come here and have the texas toast breakfast sandwhich!!!
Disappointed with my expirience.
We came in and were the only two people in the restaurant, ordered two coffees and thought about getting food, but saw a display case of croissants that were moldy and changed our minds. I did alert the employee of this but he did not take any action to it during our time there. Then a woman came in for a pick up order that was not ready for her. It was 3 drinks, one of them being regular coffee. If those drinks were done then our orders would have gone more smoothly. Then when paying, the employee did not make sure I was on the right screen when he gave me the iPad to sign. He gave me the screen that had access to all of the stored card information and I could have easily just used another person's information to pay for my coffee. And I really wish I hadn't played for that coffee because I spent 20minutes waiting for it and it was not even a good drink.
Super nice staff, good food, good price. Their pumpkin pie is delicious. Would definitely come back!
Really want this place to succeed. But the quality of the food is so-so. Coffee is decent - better than Starbucks or Caribou, imo.
Great little spot with a nice feel to it. Staff are awesome and the food is great.
The sandwich was solid and the staff were friendly. It was my first time at Sammy's and the gentleman working the counter suggested the 'hot roasted chicken' sandwich and it did not disappoint. I ordered a whole and that baby is two meals worth (or one bordering uncomfortably full :)). Nice atmosphere too with the garage door-esque window opened up.
Amazing people, yummy food and beverages, lovely decor.
The food is great and the people are even better. come here almost every Sunday for their breakfast sandwiches and the Turkey pastrami is amazing.
Amazing food with amazing service! Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Great place! great food! Very friendly staff!! You must come try it!!
I worked there,not bad....if you could deal with the bourgeois attitude from some patrons....Maybe it's me lol But other than that the food and music is good,and the service is up to par.
This place has great homemade deli sandwiches and Sammy’s sauce was excellent. Nice staff and overall welcoming atmosphere. I will definitely be back.
Great space to get some work done! Food on point and Sammy is cool as a fan!
Fabulous. Delicious. Fast. Welcoming. On time. You won't be disappointed.
We come here all the time. The staff is friendly and the breakfast sandwiches are amazing!
Our group meets here and staff makes us feel like we belong. I enjoy my chai tea & huge sandwiches.
I always have to buy a piece of their pie!
Great sandwiches and pies/pastries. Coffee is good. Plenty of seating with good views of West Broadway. Recent renovation means window garage door thing can be open in the summer for a nice breeze, but can get loud due to traffic.
Tried some of their lunch options; they're made and packaged every morning, can be entirely gone by 10am. Delicious collard greens and chicken, grab that lunch combo if you can find it.
My experience at Sammy's was very positive. I ordered a turkey pastrami and hot turkey melt to go and I didn't have to wait very long for my order. The sandwiches were delicious, the house sauce adds a nice sweetness. I ordered whole sandwiches not realizing how huge they are and definitely had left overs for later. Parking in the area can be a bit of a pain but that is not the restaurant's fault. I would definitely come back to try again, the breakfast menu looked really interesting!
Very slow & lousy boys working there Saturday morning. Went there for catering pick up for 11.55am but dragged it all the way till past 12.15pm (for no reason) no customers or line at that moment but they were slow and nonchalant about it. The moment I walked into the store one of them looked at me and said: You are too early, they stood there doing nothing until it’s almost 12pm making it impossible to pick up at 11.55am. They made the sandwiches barehanded without gloves. I am a black man, but truth needs to be told no matter how bitter, if you are serious about your business do not put black people on sensitive positions. Never! Sammy needs some serious minded workers at this location.
These boys working Saturday morning are NO for me 👎🏿👎🏿👎🏿
Wonderful food options. Very friendly staff as well I will definitely go back.
Sammy’s has great coffee and food, it’s a wonderful neighborhood coffee shop with great people and a welcoming atmosphere. The employees are friendly and always fun to talk to!
Excellent breakfast sandwich. I added nothing to it. The young man serving me was both kind and professional. I will definitely stop in again
Thankful to have had the pleasure of breakfasting at Sammy's this morning. I was greeted by a genuine, if not slightly bemused smile, as I sashayed my way through the open garage cafe front. As I often do, I asked for a food recommendation and was rewarded with a substantial chopped chicken sandwich, a lil saucy and a lil spicy. The chai with almond milk was creamy and hot, though a touch sweet for my taste, easily remedied by using less syrup next time. Will be back.
I have supported Sammy's business for years, ordering food for business meetings at my former employer from him. The flavors are yummy, like home cooking. I met someone for coffee today - it's all STILL YUMMY!! It gets crowded, especially at lunchtime. Have a sandwich and a slice of pie (or cake)!
Sammy's Avenue Eatery is the best, the staff is so welcoming, remembering you by name and your drink order. Going out of their way to give above and beyond service and kindness.
This spot is one of my favorite places to start my day, full of light and great energy. Best sport on Broadway!
Yummy!!! My husband and I came here the other day and each had a soup, sandwich, and smoothie. Everything was really good, but the sandwiches were exceptional! I can't wait to go back.
Been coming here for lunch for a long time. The hot turkey pastrami is the best! (pro tip: get it with hot peppers). Keep up the great work!
I only had coffee and cake, but loved everything about this place! Great place to meet and chat with friends, and extra friendly staff. I will be back for one of the delicious looking sandwiches!
What a treat today to find your eatery on Central Ave. The Hot turkey sub was delicious and today's Turkey veggie soup was as good as mom makes! Prefect lunch for this deary day. Sammy, thanks for taking the time to visit with me and talk about some of the good places to eat in N.E. Mpls. Your place will be a great addition to my favorite places for lunch.
Seriously delicious turkey pastrami melt! I was very satisfied. The new location at 33rd ave NE and Central has a nice view of the hills and trees on Columbia golf course too.
I was very excited to try out Sammy's Avenue Eatery on Central Avenue and it did not disappoint! The food was tasty and the ingredients were fresh. Sammy took the time to chat with us and help us decide which desserts to try. (it was a difficult decision) The banana pudding was my favorite! Sammy's Avenue Eatery is added to my list of favorites in the neighborhood.
Such a cute, quiet and homey place! Great food for a great price and the service is awesome and fast. I would definitely recommend trying something with their house sauce because it is so good. Great for meeting up, doing work over lunch, or grabbing a quick bite to go. I can't wait to go again when I'm in that part of town
If you need catering for breakfast or lunch in minneapolis, Sammy BRINGS IT!!! The best way to get a perfect lunch is to just say hey, we got about so and so amount of people and wanna feed everyone something GOOD. Sammy gets creative and EVERYONE is happy, the food is always delicious and always a surprise!! I can't wait to have time to stop in and eat, but for now will look forward to having their catering when our office gets it :)
Perfect (I mean "perfect") espresso! Great lemon cake too. I'm definitely planning to come back to try other options seemed very good
I love supporting black owned businesses. I will go again and try something else. It is a neighborhood cafe and should be supported. The sandwich I had was good and the bread was nice and fresh.
Awesome little breakfast place! The coffee was great and the egg and cheese on croissant was amazing! Great staff and the atmosphere is also great! What else can you ask for!
If you like special homemade sandwiches and fresh cakes/pies, well this is the right place but do not forget to order THIER special made soups.
I'm fairly certain I've just eaten the best sub sandwich of my lifetime. I took one bite and opened up my Yelp account to type this. But, I can't put the...read this and 35 more
