Since starting to work in the Square in mid-August, I'm trying to eat lunch at a new restaurant every day until I can't find any more. Here's my list of the Top Ten Lunch Restaurants in Harvard Square (Food Only). Got a suggestion on a new lunch spot for me? New Restaurants to Try in Harvard Square.

Subway, in University Market

26. 9-25 Subway, in University Market, 1105 Mass Ave. Summary - Good food, excellent value, quick service.

Subway - the same fast-food place advertising heavily nationwide - is actually in Harvard Square. This shouldn't be remarkable, but Harvard Square hasn't allowed a fast-food franchise, pretty much ever - you'll note there aren't any McDonalds or Burger Kings. There's a local zoning ordinance that doens't allow those sort of places.

So I was surprised to see Subway within University Market. Of all the fast food joints, Subway seems the most healthy - or at least they claim so. I was impressed with the whole wheat buns and fresh vegetables, so maybe they really are healthy.

In any case, the food was good, there was no line, and it was cheap - about $4-5 per person.
