Citysearch Editorial Review.
In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it corner on Cap Hill sits Baguette, a stroll-up take-out banh mi window serving hefty Vietnamese sandwiches piled high with a mélange of pickled carrots, daikon, jalapenos and a mild garlic pepper sauce. Baguette’s sandwiches, each priced around $5, require a little more moolah than the standard banh mi you’d find in the I.D., but their size--about 9”--may require a nap after you demolish one. What sets Baguette’s menu apart from other banh mi stops around town is a wider selection of sandwiches that include curried beef, a vegetarian option with house-made mushroom paté, and a “Build-Your-Own” option where you may choose from crowd-pleasing favorites like provolone, basil, turkey, peanut butter and jelly. With three ladies behind the counter slathering each crusty sandwich with their signature paté, and piling on the crisp, crunchy veggies, you’re only five minutes away from one of the quickest lunches on the Hill, no matter how many hipsters are in line ahead of you.
