Lunch is my favorite meal of the day. I love it because I almost always eat with a friend or co-worker, and I like to try places that I've never been to before. Lately, I've been on a sandwich kick. Sandwiches make healthy lunches that don't make me think that going to the gym is just to drop the weight from the previous day's lunch. We all know the national chains like Subway, Jimmy John's, and Blimpies, but those three are not the top of the list when it comes to the five best sandwich shops in Boise, according to Yelp.

Lemon Tree is Boise through and through, and that's why they landed at number one on this list. According to their website, they serve lemonades and sandwiches "with a twist."
