Quick, Cheap Lunches in SoHo

I just started working at a new office in SoHO and have no idea what to eat for lunch.

What are some good, quick, take-out lunch places in this hood ($10 and under). I want to get away from the standard Midtown-ish lunch joints.

    Alidoro
    Calexico cart
    Grandaisy (maybe, those sandwiches are kinda small)
    Banh Mi Saigon Bakery
    Once Upon a Tart
    Village Tart
    Blue Ribbon Market (technically WV)
    'ino (ditto)
    Despana
    Lahore
    Mezzaluna
    Murray's Cheeses takeout section (WV)
    Amy's Bread (WV)
    Mooncake
    Hampton Chutney
    Snack
    Aroma (coffee shop)
    Lure Fishbar (maybe)
    Hoomoos Asli
    Torrisi (might be on the high end)
    McNally Jackson Cafe
    Oro Bakery
    Ground Support

    Also checkout the ladies who write lunchstudio.blogspot.com since they go out for lunch frequently and are always looking for places near their Soho studio. Oh, and there's also the "Lunch for one" column on Serious Eats, the writer goes to Soho pretty often.

      This is a good list. I would also recommend the newly opened Project Sandwich on Thompson (Prince/Spring) and Numero 28, a vastly underrated pizza place on Spring (Sullivan/Thompson).

        Definitely recommend Crosby Connection on Bleecker just East of Lafayette, hidden inside a theater (whose name escapes me at the moment). It's right in the front/lobby area, so it's not awkward when you walk in. They have a nice seating area, too. They have fabulous, fresh, delicious large sandwiches. The menu isn't too large, but everything I've had is great. The bread is super fresh, and they have whole wheat available! (bonus points on that one) I love the turkey-brie-pear sandwich they have, and they're always happy to custom make any sandwich. The meatball sandwich is also awesome, with a little bit of a sweet tinge to the red sauce. They can make any sandwich a salad for the same price. The sandwiches are all $7, a steal at how big they are (pretty comparable to a subway footlong but WAY better).

          Bleecker Street Theater Company is the theatre. The sandwich shop is literally a counter in the lobby. It's more like a coffee shop atmosphere.
