This is only a take out but with a vast array of sandwiches made to order. The coffee and pastries are excellent too. Only open till 7 pm so if you want a light supper at home make sure you order early. Tasty breakfast bagels as well.

Great sandwiches and sides to go. Fast, efficient, and not too expensive. Excellent Roast Beef! Cash only.

I am from NY and all transplants look for a good deli when they move to a new town. I was excited that they served Boar's Head meats so I tried it out. The bread was good, but I was super disappointed when I got home and discovered I did not get what I ordered. I was the only person... More

Simply the best and only deli in Adams Morgan. Just tell them what you want -- they will make it up for you. Lots of packaged gourmet goodies, too, from capers to cookies. Fast efficient service, indifferent personal interaction, just like any deli.

Small place with big surprises. The bagels were the best I have had in a long time. In a great area for just walking around enjoying the scenery. Eclectic area of Adam's Morgan with great local fare. Look forward to my next trip and bagel!

I don't understand why the place is so popular. Its VERY small, packed and with serious people. The sandwich was ok, it wasn't the best ever (I got the Avocado BLT). The croissant, eg and cheese was better but still not to give it a 4 stars.

My family chose So's Your Mom for lunch the Saturday we moved our daughter into her apartment. Despite a line of 10 people, the counter staff took our order quickly and our food came in reasonable time. The bagels were great, my sandwich (emanthaler and avocado on whole wheat) was tasty and filling (great value for $6.95). Definitely a great... More

Cash only. But there is an ATM next door. Always a long line. And well worth the wait. Boar's Head meats and cheeses! Prepared deli salads, chips, juices, coffee, pastries and specialty foods. But this place is all about the sandwich. Plan on a 7-10$ meal.

Way above average quality meats, cheeses, bagels and some hard to find condiments. Very good breakfast selections. Cash only, but worth the inconvenience.
