There are five Green Line Cafes in the vicinity of University City. This location on Locust Street has a menu that rotates with the season, but you can always find a good selection of vegan and vegetarian sandwiches, as well as things like turkey croissants and roast beef wraps. There’s not too much space to hang out, but you can usually grab a small table outside when the weather’s nice. Come here if you’re walking around UPenn’s campus in search of a good sandwich.
