bread/sandwich – lOve the coffee/eggroll.. dont like the barguette/sandwich, because the bread is way to hard and chewy.
COFFEE CAN'T GET ANY BETTER – Probably the best iced coffe in the world. You must try the cream cakes baked fresh in a cool machine. the prices could not be beat anywhere. I absolutely love this place...
Coffee that will wake you up! – They have some coffee here that is not only good but very strong. It is like drinking two red bulls at once!
Dry & tasteless – I am Vietnamese and I think Lee's has the worst Vietnamese sandwiches around. They do not put enough pate, their mayonnaise is strangely sweet, and not enough soy sauce either. Their croissant sandwiches are even worst. Dry and tasteless. It is crowded because of the atmosphere & not the food. You'd be better off trying Vietnamese baguette sandwiches at Tan Hoang Huong at the corner of Euclid & Edinger in Fountain Valley or Dong Hung Vien at the corner of Westminster and Newland inside the Stater Bros. shopping center. Dong Hung Vien has great Capuccino w/ boba too (made with Vietnamese coffee). Hot baguette @ $1.00 for 2.
This Vietnamese version of a deli offers cold-cut sandwiches on French bread, with a twist. – In Short
This popular takeout chain features banh mi, Vietnamese sandwiches with cold cuts, pate, fresh cilantro and pickled veggies on a French baguette. American sandwich options are available as well, including ham and cheese. Fresh-baked cream cakes, croissants and muffins are perfect pairings. French baguettes are baked fresh every 30 minutes.
Best Iced Coffee!! – I know this is a sandwich place, but they have the best Iced Coffee around! So good, I usually buy the quart and take it home. It's true what one reviewer said about putting half the cup full of ice. If any of you have never had Vietnamese coffee, it's very strong. Putting a lot of ice in there means you can drink it slowly until the ice melts and dilutes it. If you drank a whole cup without the ice, you'd be pretty jittery. Anyway, as far as the food, your typical Vietnamese sandwich is probably an acquired taste. The basic ones have BBQ or grilled pork or chicken and then is topped off with pickled daikon and carrots, cilantro, and a jalapeno. Pretty good in my book, but not everyones. They also have various types of desserts in here and most of them are decent.
Get the #6 – I always get the #6 - BBQ Pork sandwich. I've tried some of the "European" sandwiches, and they were disappointing (but not horrible). The food is cheap, the service is very quick, the interior is both bright and clean, and the crowd is diverse.
Lee's menu is so large and daunting that it would be ridiculous to give them an even slightly negative review - especially if a person has only tried a few items.
It's always crowded because of their many food offerings (as one previous reviewer stated quizzically), but I think that's totally understandable.
Busy, All the Time – I've passed this place at 7 a.m. on a weekday and the parking lot is FULL. They have Vietnamese sandwiches as well as standard "American" sandwiches, like turkey and cheese. I don't get all the fuss -- the quality of the sandwich isn't fantastic, even by cheap standards -- but apparently everybody loves this place.
