Excellent food and fast service. Haven’t had a bad sandwich yet!

Joanne Marcinek

Quaint, clean settings. Great and fast breakfast sandwiches. Can’t beat the breakfast combo deal. Custom, dagwood sized, sandwich creations for lunch named from local landmarks alongside deli favorites.

No better place for a $1.50 sausage egg and cheese before 11am. You can also toss a hash brown on the sandwich for 99c which I would highly recommend. It gets really crowded on weekend mornings and seating is limited so don’t expect to get a table at those times. If you’re from out of town you have to try the Flagpole sandwich for lunch, it’s perfect.

Amazing deli in the heart of Newtown. Best bacon egg and cheese I have ever had-you need to order a hash brown with it! Flagpole is one of her best inventions if you’re looking to be satisfied all day long.

Great place to grab lunch. Food was cheap; portion was large; wait was minimal, and choices were aplenty. I had a “Flagpole” which I was told is one of the most popular items on the menu.
I loved the inside of the store, clean, old-fashioned, with high ceiling, and rustic benches near the windows. I would choose to come here for lunch over fast-food places in a heart beat.

Do yourself a favor – go straight to the deli in the back, order a Flagpole, and eat it outside so you can enjoy the view of Newtown’s beautiful main street. Although some days I’ll forgo the Flagpole in favor of hot roast beef, bacon, melted cheddar and barbecue sauce on a roll…it does not get better than that!

I check-in You wouldn’t expect to find a deli and sandwich shop in the back of a little general store, but it’s there. Definitely worth a stop if you like cheap and delicious sandwiches. If I lived in Newtown, I’d probably be there daily.

You can’t do better than this if you want a hot sandwich . While the flagpole is famous, I love hot roast beef and will usually go for “the Borough” or “the Sandy Hook” (I think that’s what it’s called). I usually get a cold mocha Frappuccino with it since they don’t have milkshakes. The place has lots of options in terms of drinks, chips and candy.

Right on the historic Main St in Newtown, this place has the best sandwiches in town. Open early for breakfast sandwiches, this is a must-visit. Once you get your meal, go sit on the front porch with a great view of the flagpole and main street….and watch the world pass by. Norman Rockwell would have loved this scene!

How could you go wrong with a freshly made bacon and egg sandwich for around $2? Benches are available if you’d like to sit outside.

I love the deli in the back! Has so many great sandwiches named after spots in Newtown! I usually craft my own turkey sandwich- turkey, lettuce, tomato, onions, hot peppers, pepper jack, and spicy mustard! Hot, hot, hot! But the sandwitch is packed with meat and the amenities and is a joy to eat! If you’re craving a turkey sandwich fine right that’s it, and it is done best at the Newtown General Store.
