North Capitol Main Street: A guide to taking care of yourself
Grab a Healthy Lunch (and a Cookie) at Uncle Chips
Nourish your body with lunch from Uncle Chips. The neighborhood sandwich shop and bakery prepares everything in-house using only fresh, high-quality ingredients. Delicious salads and vegetarian sandwiches that can make even carnivores drool, make it easy to choose healthy options. And go ahead and try the chocolate-chip cookie that Uncle Chips is famous for (it was even the snack of the day on The Rachel Ray Show). Pick up lunch, grab a picnic blanket, or even use your yoga mat, and head over for a picnic at Triangle Park.
What people are saying
“Hands down one of the best bakery/deli in the Washington, D.C. area…The sandwiches are to die for (I love the embassy of turkey), and the oatmeal cookies will make you smack your uncle chip (get it Uncle Chips). ” – Jay S. on Yelp
“We come here often and it’s always on point. Cookies are DELICIOUS! The sandwiches are scrumptious, and the black bean brownies are to die for. Service is always friendly… Today they had giant cinnamon rolls, and they were so good it was scandalous! Awesome little spot! ” – Caroline Maunakea-Hammonds on Google
About Uncle Chips
Owner Shannon Boyle was working at a bar association and set to go to law school when she decided to perfect her chocolate chip cookies. She mastered her eggless recipe, dropped the idea of law school, and Uncle Chips opened its doors in North Capitol in 2012. The restaurant started as a bakery; sandwiches and salads were added to the menu later because, as Shannon explained, “I selfishly love sandwiches.”
Uncle Chips is open daily, 9:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. for pick-up and delivery. They also ship cookies, which make great gifts for friends across the country. Insider tip: Uncle Chips is coming out with specially packaged shortbread cookies to encourage people to vote. Follow them on Facebook or Instagram to be one of the first to know when the treats are released.
