I was first introduced to this place, I think, by an old high school friend who attended the same university as me back in the day. Even though I lived in the furthest possible dorms from this place, all the way on the other side of campus (ugh!), I did make a good number of trips to Gregoire, just to get a taste of their delicious sandwiches on a monthly-changing menu.

Over the years, Gregoire has become my signature place to take visitors, along with Ici, so I have pictures across several trips. As I mentioned, they have a changing menu, so some of what I had is probably no longer on the menu, though they do recycle similar seasonal recipes. Their sandwich menu caters to a wide variety of palates, as they often offer at least five different meats or seafood [as well as vegetarian], which range from a purely savory to a slightly sweet sandwich or salad. They also serve soup, sometimes French onion- quite appropriate for a French 'restaurant.' I put restaurant in quotes, because they are more of a take-out place with limited seating, so diners often just sit on the curbside to munch on their sandwiches.
For those who have never been, I would recommend their popular Potato Puffs ($4.5) to start. They've gotten a bit smaller over the years, but still taste just as good! Also, it might be smart to order online beforehand and to keep the group limited to maybe five people tops, if you plan on grabbing a seat on site.
