Good Place for Sandwiches Near a Picnic Area?

I know this is a rather specific request, but can anyone think of good sandwich/sub shops, delis, markets, or cafes within walking distance of a place to picnic? Today's weather really has me thinking of getting the blanket out, along with a good book and a radio. Anyplace inside Route 128 would work for me.
I wish the Arboretum allowed picnics, as there seem to be some food places right there, but....
The Whole Foods at Fresh Pond -- there is a huge park behind it with benches, walking paths, etc.
Artu Beacon Hill and the Esplanade.
Via Lago (pricey) in lexington and either head out the bike trail to a convenient location or there is a cool little hill and boulders up the steps near the library.
Mangia Mangia or Fresh Cheese (or calamari from daily catch) then hitch it over to Christopher Columbus. Also Umberto depending on the hour and Limster has Volle Nolle next door a couple of times but I have never been.
How about a Kelly's Roast Beef sandwich or double cheeseburger and bringing a chair to sit at Revere Beach? It might be a little cooler near the ocean but the view is fantastic.
