Big Booty Bakery

Has anyone else been to Big Booty Bakery on 23rd street between 7th and 8th? I walk past it a lot and finally went in for the first time about a week ago. So far I've had a croissant, a cheese roll, and brought home a loaf of whole grain bread - all *delicious* (though I suspect that may be because they add what tastes like about a pound of butter to each bite). Has anyone tried their soups or sandwiches, and are they as tasty as the baked goods?
I had some pastries from Big Booty when they first opened and they more than passed muster with Colombian friends. I remember something that was stuffed with dulce de leche that was delicious. I would definitely be interested in hearing about the sandwiches...
Their cheese rock is my absolute favorite snack, but I also find their sandwiches to be quite tasty: I usually switch off between the hummus and red pepper and the "HAT" (hummus, avocado, and tomato). Their cupcakes are also fantastic (not-too-sweet frosting), and the acai smoothie is good, too.
Ah, I love Big Booty.
Haven't had the soups or sandwiches, but I love that place. My girlfriend threw a Cinco de Mayo party for my birthday last year and we ordered Red Velvet cupcakes, corn/corn & cheese arepas and a HUGE Tres Leches sheet cake from them. All of it was delicioso and they were a pleasure to deal with. Sometimes, if I'm in the neighborhood, I 'll stop in and get a round bun that has Nutella inside. Perfect breakfast bun or snack!
