    I'm a pretty big fan of the bánh mì sammiches at Spize Cafe on Fayetteville St. On the menu, they just call them baguettes.

      Agreed on Spize and Raleigh Times, I'd also think about Capital Club 16 (German-American), Busy Bee Cafe, Sono (Sushi), Gravy (Italian), Sitti (Lebanese) and maybe Oakwood Cafe (Cuban-Argentinian).

      Everything is pretty walkable in downtown Raleigh so you can even make it further out if you're interested... Enjoy!

      I like the Raleigh Times Bar. The salads are large and interesting, the burgers and sandwiches are quite good, and the pulled pork nachos (if they have them that day) are worth the trip alone.

        I second both of these. I love Spize's sandwiches. I love Raleigh Time's sandwiches too (and it's a good spot for high gravity Belgian beers, which all moms love). Feelin' a lot of love today.

        Here's an option for you, if you don't mind jumping in your car for a bit. Check out A&C Supermarket on S. Wilmington Drive. It's a huge Asian market with a solid restaurant inside. I could spend all day just checking out the cool stuff like all the fresh seafood or the unique fresh vegetables.

        Some people like to go to places filled with history when visiting a place. I like to go to the grocery store...

          Sono on Fayetteville street has a killer lunch deal if you like sushi. 2 special rolls for $14 or soup, salad and a roll for $10. I'd imagine that the rest of their lunch is good, because everything I've ever had there is excellent, but whenever I go for lunch I always get the rolls.
