The skinniest sandwicherie in Paris



This has gotta be the world's skinniest sandwicherie! That's a scarf store and an art gallery on either side, so the sandwich place really is just that narrow section in the middle. I bet they get stuck if they try to hand you your sandwich longways. New employees probably do that all the time.
