What's for lunch? Our editor's pick of where to eat on your lunch break.

City Lunch: Allie's Deli
Skyway Accessible: Rand Tower skyway, across from Potbelly, 6th Street & Marquette.

In/Out: Counter service, a few tables, expect lines during peak.

Deets: If you’ve walked by Allie’s around 12:30, you’ve seen lines wrapping into the hallway. Don’t worry, they’ll move quickly, most people are popping by to pick up a bowl of homey soup or a custom sandwich. Allie’s is the indy answer to Potbelly across the hall. It’s not slick or cheeky, it’s mom-n-popish and the food is simple, fresh, and delivers a satisfying lunch. The Mpls.St.Paul Magazine editors are fans of the spicy and generous white chicken chili, the variety of egg sandwiches and breads available through lunch (not to mention the efficient sandwich team), the custom salad option which gives you a mess of great toppings for about $6, and the always genuine and smiling cashiers who are sincerely thankful for your business.
