Unlike a sand witch, a sandwich doesn't have the power to turn men into sand and sand into poisoned glass. Let a sandwich cast a devastating spell on hunger pains with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of soups, salads, and sandwiches at the The Carving Board Cafe in Charlottesville, which is open for lunch Monday–Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Carving Board Cafe serves up a scrumptious menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches layered with heaping mounds of house-roasted, -smoked, and -baked deli meats. Silence empty-belly rumblings with one of the deli's delectable sandwiches, such as the crustacean-centric crab melt, loaded with lump crabmeat, tomatoes, and provolone, and nestled inside the downy bosom of sourdough bread ($5.95). Handheld fare includes the South West roast beef sandwich, a tummy-appeasing foodstack that swaddles tongue buds with lettuce, tomatoes, spicy mayo, and a slice of pepper jack cheese shaped like a 10-gallon hat ($4.95). A fleet of made-from-scratch soups and salads are also available, and include options such as hearty seafood chowder ($2.20–$3.85) or sesame asian salad tossed with fresh veggies, honey-toasted almonds, and chinese noodles and dressed in the deli's signature sesame vinaigrette ($4.95).
- You definitely need to try the Carving Board Cafe's Crab Cake Sandwich! It is super delicious, but also super filling. A huge crab cake, with cheese on top, on sourdough bread, toasted on the outside. MmMmm. – Cassie T., Yelp, 5/20/08
- This is a fantastic little restaurant. Owned by two great people who work their rear ends off and make everything fresh. – cvillerevieweratlarge, Urbanspoon
