Eating out at lunch - great...and cheap!

I love to save money on lunch, eat delightful food (plus save time on food shopping, when I bring my list) - and eat out, too.

Recently, I realized that there are supermarkets that have some little tables (either courtesy of the supermarket or courtesy of an in-store Starbucks) that help me do just that. I buy lunch portions at the deli (of course, I can specify the number of ounces, too), get bread or goodies from the bakery, add a fruit, whatever. I've been paying between $2.75-$4.50 for lunch.

Other ideas for goodie-but cheapie get-away lunches?
