Union Sandwich Co.: Old Town's Must-Try Gourmet Grab-and-Go Spot!

Britt Patterson

It’s everything we’ve been waiting for! Nestled in Old Town’s Torpedo Factory on the corner of King Street and N. Union Street, the quick-stop Union Sandwich Co. has quickly become the talk of the town. This charming sandwich shop offers a much needed grab-and-go option for locals and visitors, featuring gourmet sandwiches, made-to-order salads, unique snacks, and ice cream sandwiches.

This new shop comes from the team behind Slaters Market, located near Potomac Greens off Slaters Lane in North Old Town (one of our team’s favorite lunch spots). Union Sandwich Co. continues their stellar sandwich-making in this new location.

Here are a few of the menu highlights that I’m looking forward to trying this fall:

The Torpedo Artist: A delicious combination of capicola, ham, pepperoni, provolone cheese, crisp lettuce, onions, and your choice of sweet or hot peppers. All these savory ingredients come together on a rustic baguette!

Sweet Virginia: The "Sweet Virginia" sandwich combines savory ham, creamy brie cheese, Dijon mustard, fresh lettuce, and ripe tomatoes, all served on a rustic baguette. It's a taste of Virginia in every bite. Yum!

Potomac Club: This classic sandwich is made with turkey, Havarti Dill, avocado, USC Aioli, lettuce, tomato, bacon, all served on hearty multigrain bread.

Union Sandwich Co. is strategically located in a bustling area with high pedestrian traffic. While parking may be a challenge, their online ordering system makes it easy to order ahead for a quick pick-up. To explore their full menu and to order ahead, visit Union Sandwich Co.’s online menu.

Union Sandwich Co. is open daily from 10 am - 8 pm, making it the ideal spot for a seamless transition from lunchtime to a happy hour market pickup. As the day draws to a close and the sun sets, drop by the shop to grab delectable snacks, artisanal chips, and a bottle of your favorite craft ale or wine. Whether you're heading home or planning an impromptu picnic by the scenic Potomac River, Union Sandwich Co. has your culinary cravings covered!
