Food at Tealuxe

What kind of food do they serve at the Tealuxe on Newbury Street? Do they only serve sandwiches at lunch, or do they serve in the evening as well?

    I think they serve at least until early evening it is mostly sandwiches, a few salads and a soup. A piece of advice - go somewhere else unless you really want the tea.

      Ditto. Tea is great, food isnt.

      In all fairness, I think the food at Tealuxe is decent - I actually quite enjoy their tuna sandwich (nothing earth shattering, but a lot of good tuna salad in a fresh pita with lots of veggies, and potato chips!), and for $7, it's definitely one of the most affordable options in the area (and great when they had the outdoor tables set up). I can split the tuna sandwich with a friend, and we each get tea, and it's cheap and satisfying, and we get the Newbury St people watching experience.

        I've only eaten there once but had a really good grilled sandwich of some sort.

        A report of my visit: they have a slew of pressed sandwiches, and a few cold sandwichs, along with a few salads and other things like hummus. I had a mozzarella, tomato and basil pressed sandwich, which was tasty -- lots of good basil flavor. Sandwiches come with salad, potato salad or chips. The salad has a fantastic dressing on it, and I would go back just for a salad.

        Two pots of tea and a slice of lemon poppyseed cake later, I was overall happy with Tealuxe as a fairly quiet cafe for a light dinner.
