Delicious bread, friendly efficient staff, and a staple in San Jose! They are cash only so make sure to have cash. They have an atm machine though.

I called in my order and spoke with a very enthusiastic helpful rep. I let her know I was close and was hoping to get my order soon if possible. As soon as I paid my sandwich was handed to me! Just as I ordered! Im very picky and order a unusual boring sandwich it was soo delicious! Turkey, salami, avo, tomato, and provalone! The service was excellent, sandwiches were fresh, and full of flavor! SIP has not stopped the excellence you get with every order! Thank you FB!

These are the best sandwiches in all of San Jose. High quality meats and cheeses. Fresh baked sourdough bread. The owners couldn't be more personable or helpful.

Have been coming here for many many years, there staff and service is just as as the amazing sandwiches! I the classic #5 with regular mustard & the extra veggies (bell peppers and cucumbers) and my daughter the prosciutto #16. Fresh and warm bread! My mouth is watering already! Make a quick stop for one of these sandwiches and do your own yelp review!

Best sandwich in San Jose. Fresh ingredients, friendly staff and of course, freshly baked bread. This is one of the best lunch spots on DTSJ and one of the best sandwich spots I've ever been to.

Bottom line: best sandwich in San Jose - only available during business lunch hours. Cash only *****food***** Five star. The sandwich is straight fire, with the flamey bread the hottest part of the fire. Baked and out of the oven right before they slice it to make your sandwich. Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside. Otherwise there are all your standard lunch meat options, topped with the usual sandwich toppings (Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, mustard, mayo). You can swap cheese for cheddar, American, Jack, or peppered jack. *****service***** Five star. Quick, accurate, friendly. If you're really lucky they open the sliced bread and hold it up near your face so soon after it leaves the oven that you can literally feel the steam. ****vibe**** Four star. Located in the first floor of a larger business building, it has a nice quiet little deli vibe. An episode of the Sopranos could take place here. Some nice dated photos of Italy on the walls. Frank Sinatra is probably playing softly. Feels pretty good, man. ***bathroom*** Three Star. You have to ask for a key, it's just part of the business building lobby bathroom. If you want to just wash your hands, they usually have sanitation wipes available.

Consistently awesome! I had the Chipotle Chicken sandwich and it was even better than I imagined. I recommend Freshly Baked Eatery to everyone.

This place is still the best no frills sourdough sandwich in the South Bay. The bread is always freshly baked and they always use quality deli meat. You can't go wrong with any of the choices. The fresh baked bread really makes the sandwich and takes it to another level. The line can be long around lunch but moves quickly. Parking is also limited to street metered parking so if you see a spot take it. There is plenty of seating inside if you decide to eat there. I've been coming here for over 10 years and plan to continue to visit when I get the urge for a sandwich.

Discovered this place in 2012 and finally leaving a review now. They clearly are doing just fine for all the reasons everybody else already mentioned. Have been here at least 30 plus times..... Bring cash.

Always an easy stop to pick up a great sandwich. Good selection, and I've actually tried 3/4 of the menu. I honestly liked them all.

Yelp is amazing. What a documentation/record of your own history. So, I went to FBE after about 13 years, and hardly anything has changed. The bread, after 13 years, is still just as fresh, soft and perhaps the best sourdough sandwich bread I have tasted. The vegetarian options are still just that one solitary entry on the menu. They're still open only for weekday lunches and parking's such a nightmare in DTSJ. Nevertheless, for the best sourdough (at least in San Jose), they deserve full 5 stars. I had to leave that one star docked because: They still don't have more creativity for vegetarians. The contents of the vegetarian ("cheese") sandwich are kinda lame. For all the art and creativity they put into the bread, they could do with some more in terms of the contents of their sandwich. And on this front, I absolutely adore Ike's.

I knew when there were construction workers waiting for the sandwich shop to open at 10:30am that this was the place. Unassuming in the lower level of an office building but quick service and absolutely great sourdough straight from the oven.

Sister told me about this place. Downtown San Jose on 3rd street and parking is of course RIDICULOUS. But worth the hassle. The sandwiches are FRESHLY made everyday by hand at your liking. They are quick and fast so make sure you know what you want. It will help. Today I decided to try the Special Cajun Turkey on freshly baked sourdough bread mmmmmm! so delish. Bread was still warm in my hand eeeewwww! oh and also got the Pastrami and Ham for my kid or wife who ever is hungrier LOL! This is a lunch only M-F place. Judges, Lawyers, Police officers, County, State, Federal personnel is the crowd. Also get the young and the old and regulars. Everyone tries to go there. Excellent sandwiches.

You know that one place where you always order the same thing? Because you'd be disappointed that you didn't get that same thing? This is that place for me. I always get the #16 prosciutto and provolone cheese with oil and vinegar, and it's always delicious. The sandwiches here are simple. This is how you can tell the it's a solid sandwich, there isn't anywhere to hide. They also come with a dill spear. The sandwiches are a good size. I usually eat the whole thing and over-stuff myself because it's so good. Make sure you bring cash as they are a cash only establishment. They do have an ATM inside in case you forget, but I haven't used it so I'm not sure what the charge is. They are located across a park and honestly if I wasn't using my GPS, I would have walked past the place. It's usually quiet when I walk in sometime after 1pm. People have already ordered and are sitting inside or outside eating by the time I get there. They also offer chips and drinks for sale. Guess I know what I'm eating for lunch tomorrow...

Excellent sandwiches on the best bread served extremely fast. Always polite and courteous service.

I have been eyeing this place for a while and I finally came. They're only open for lunch and their cash only so beware. I came and got their garlic turkey to go. They tasted really really good and filled me up. Unfortunately the bag did wrap a little bit at the bottom so it got messy. I do think this place is pretty good. They made the food fast and the workers were nice. It's located inside of an office building across from St. James Park if you can't find it. I know I'll be back again!

Gabrielle Pollard

Food was so delicious. Service is consistently great. The bill was reasonable. I see why this place has a lot of good reviews.

Love their sandwiches. It’s fresh and delicious. Reminds me of an mom and pops deli shop. The only downside is it’s cash only which is not an issue, they have a ATM inside for your convenience. Do expect some lines but they are quick on their feet to get you that delicious sandwich. They have an indoor and outdoor seating. Overall great sandwich spot hands down.

I want to say that this place is one of downtown San Jose's best kept secrets, but the lines out the door at lunchtime suggest otherwise. Anyway, if you don't know about this place and you are a fan of sandwiches, I recommend you check it out immediately. These sandwiches are heavy on the bread, with the big, warm, fresh baked sourdough roll all but mandatory. It is cash only, but they have an ATM on site. You can share a sandwich with a friend and you both will be uncomfortably full afterward. One of the best lunch options downtown.

Jess C.

Amazing sandwiches! The owners are welcoming and the environment is homey. The bread, meat, cheese all delicious. Sandwiches are big, I can get full with half the sandwich.

Don P.

Freshly Baked makes Ike's seem like an overpriced Subway.

Timothy S.

Always an amazing place to stop by for lunch. Boar's Head meat and freshly baked bread. There's a reason they're only open for several hours. In and out in 15 minutes or less, guaranteed.

John Uribe

I love this place,and it is a must every time I'm in there area. I always get the turkey and cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, extra peppercinis, on their incredibly delicious sourdough bread. I wish they were open longer thoughout the day.

Jose Uribe

Can't beat the goodness of fresh sandwiches, and the fast service, yuuuuuum yuuuuuum

Wayne C.

In my opinion , the best sandwich in the valley for 10 bucks! Home made bread and I can only eat half. GREAT VALUE!

Company lunch. I had a classic one and beef one. Roasted beef sandwich is sooo gooood. The beef is very tender and original flavor. I didn't taste any extra ingredients added tho.

Oh my goodness, the hype is real here. When they call themselves "Freshly Baked" they are really delivering it. Here's the downside, the hours and workdays are so limited. They are only open Monday through Friday from 10:30-2:30. Therefore there is only a 4 hour window to get your sandwich. There isn't anything complex about the simple goodness of this sandwich. The sourdough bread is baked fresh and it is absolute divine. This bread is toasty warm and has the perfect fluffy texture. It is everything I never dreamed sourdough bread could be like. Asides from that, all their meats and veggies are fresh and made to order. You'll find your like of Boar's Head meats here. The addition of the pickle spear and optional chili peppers on the side add some vinegar and heat if you want. They are insanely quick about getting your order to you. After I paid (cash only), the sandwich came literally 30 seconds after. They have some seating inside as well a few tables outside. Again, no special sauce or special ingredients, just extremely fresh components to make a fantastic sandwich.
