At the base of Bellevue Towers South Tower, in what was the last and final unoccupied retail space, Potbelly Sandwich Shop is now open.

Potbelly brings its toasty warm sandwiches and hand-dipped shakes to its 2nd Greater Seattle store. Their sandwiches are well priced, ranging from $4.50 – $5.50.

The stores are named Potbelly because potbelly stoves were used in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, and potbelly stoves were often known as the place for people to gather around and chat. The Bellevue store is filled with antiques and old photos from Bellevue’s history. This will be a unique and different environment than anything that currently exists within the city.

It is likely to be a busy lunch location, which will cater to Downtown workers.

Update: Potbelly is currently only open Monday through Friday 10am – 6pm.

  1. AWESOME!!! Potbelly had GREAT sandwiches!! 🙂

  2. Anyone know how late they’ll be open? I’m hoping that they’re not planning to only be open for lunch.


  4. Went over to grab some lunch, the place is packed like crazy right now. Always nice to have more lunch options in the area though.

  5. Skimming off the top? 58 cent tax on a $5 sandwich??

  6. The times that they are opening are a bit disappointing. They are open Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm. This does not cater to a dinner crowd. Hopefully their hours will expand over time.

  7. They told me that they would eventually expand to offer breakfast (I popped in at 9 am yesterday morning)

  8. Ugh, 6pm? That’s terrible. The last thing that the area needs is more dead space at night.

  9. Oh man, just noticed that Michael said that they’re closed weekends too! Ouch. Ouch. Ouch.

  10. They are slacking. Not open today. Not open on weekends. HORRENDOUS.
