Financial District/Downtown Take Out Lunch Places

I work downtown on Federal Street and I am always looking for new options for quick take out lunches. My usuals are:

Al Capone's
Sam LaGrassa's
Pressed Sandwiches (despite being overpriced)
J Pace

Anyone have any recommendations? What are your favorite downtown lunch spots that do take out and are relatively quick and cheap?

  1. I too work on Federal Street. A few in my current high rotation:

    Sultan's Kitchen/Boston Kebab House - tasty, nutritious Turkish food
    Al's State Street/Italian Café - very good subs made with top-notch ingredients, much better than Al Capone's, IMO
    Flat Black Coffee - they recently started carrying pre-made sandwiches from Sel de la Terre at lunchtime

      You've covered most of my faves.

      I'll add Sakura Bana on Broad for Japanese and Burrito Express on Bedford

        I am a huge fan of the salads and sandwiches @ Sebastians.
