Portland Area - Deli/Sub Shops

Any suggestions for a deli/sub shop in the Portland are? Ideally looking for a place that can make subs and I can choose from a wide selection of each type of meat and cheese. Like smoked turkey, peppercorn, honey turkey, roast turkey, etc or swiss cheese, lorraine cheese, low-sodium swiss.

  1. My first thought is Pat's Meat Mart on Stevens Ave. in Portland. I'm sure there are other places, too, but Pat's sandwiches are excellent and they have a big selection.

    1. The staff at Pat's is awesome.Great service...Maybe also the Full Belly Deli? Large selection and they can do large orders with ease...

      1. West End Grocery on the corner of Park and Spring. They make standard Italians and a wide range of specialty sandwiches.

            There is also a sandwich shop in Monument Square which is very good, with a large variety of meats, which look fresh and good. I can't think of the name, but its a few doors down from David's.

              I think you are thinking of Henry VIII's. I was just saying last night that I was curious about that place!

                One of the aspects of a good sandwich shop that deserves consideration is that of value - there are several sandwich shops on the peninsula that make an outstanding sub, but when you are paying $7 to $8 or more for a sandwich it SHOULD be good. Damn good...

          2. There is a sandwhich shop out by Cheverus that was always excellent when I worked out that way (four years ago). Market Street Eats and Crooked Mile are good intown.
