Where can you find the best sandwich rolls in the Los Angeles area, I already know that Bay Cities in Santa Monica has good ones. TIA

    Of course it depends on what kind of sandwich!
    I like Giulianos in the South Bay for Italian subs.
    Telera rolls from Northgate or Big Saver have a good textured crust and are good for cubanos or Mexican tortas.
    Crispy baguettes for banh mi or darn near any sandwich, closest to me is Bristol Farms :-(. The fluffy ones from the budget bakeries don't cut it usually. La Brea and Trader Joes, no mas.

    When I remember/plan ahead, there are bakeries at the Torrance and Gardena (Saturday) CFMs that sell very good but pricey breads (gotta research this more).
    Generally bakeries are a weak point of the South Bay area.

      Well, I can always rely on Vons Bakery for nice chewy Kaiser (water) rolls in the SGV.

        I love the onion pockets at Canters in Hollywood. Very good!

          Thees at the Farmers Market is quite good.

            Hate to say it, but I've had pretty good luck at Wholefoods.

              My only prioblem with WF bread products is that they keep a lot of their 'fresh' breads frozen until it is stocked on the shelf. Not the baked in store product but the great selection of mostly sliced breads with a WF and other labels.
