Jury Duty--Where to get a sandwich??

I have Jury Duty today and probably should have posted this earlier since I'm leaving in an hour (and I'm guessing don't get wi-fi at the court house), but is there anywhere nearby to grab a sandwich or salad during my 1 hour lunch break?

I will be at the Moultrie Courthouse on Indiana Ave. Any thoughts?

(Btw I thought there was a thread on this already but I couldn't find anything)

  1. There's an Au Bon Pain diagonally across from the courthouse. If you don't mind walking just a bit for something better, there's Teaism on 8th & D.

      Perfect! Thanks so much Jaydreb.

    2. There is/was? a sandwich shop directly across the street from the courthouse. But usually, the person in charge of the jury pool will make an announcement at lunch time the places nearby where one can eat in the time allotted. Or you can ask him/her.

      1. There are a couple of Firehook Bakerys- 441 4th St. NW (Judiciary Sq) and one at 401 F St NW (Bldg Museum)

        1. Thanks for these recommendations. Looks like I'm going to get to know this area quite well---I was placed on a jury that will probably be in court for the next 6 days. (Civic duty...blah, blah, blah). The other jurors were telling me that Tangy Sweet isn't too far away...that will be a nice treat :)

          1. the cafeteria in the close-by federal courthouse has excellent southern veggies -- and their mains are good, too. try the spinach. you'll want it every day!
