Livermore area for sandwiches
Looking for a place for good to great sandwiches that I can order, pick up and take to an event. Just need a few sandwiches (about 10) and a place willing to prepare take-out that can be picked up around 10 AM. Thanks.
There's no Whole Foods, Andronico's, or Gene's FF in Livermore. Safeway is your best bet. I think it's the best thing that Safeway does. There are more choices than are on their menu board. They still make all the sandwiches that were on the board until some anal accountant back at corporate decided that there were too many choices. Price is right too. I'm a real sandwich aficionado and I really like their sandwiches. Their deli salads are terrible though. One Safeway is downtown and the other is at First St and 580.
Any thoughts about Tommie's Deli and Sandwiches? They open at 10 am and seem to get favorable mentions elsewhere on the web. The take orders by phone, fax or online. Here's their menu in pdf format
They also have a good selection of retro sodas from what I read. Some of the specialty sandwiches getting positive comments.
Piesta Pork di Resistance–Sliced pork loin with fennel, garlic, mayo, roasted red peppers, & arugala on Rye
How Now Fowl Cow–Roast beef & turkey w/cream cheese,avocado, & tomato on Dutch Crunch
Love that from the kid's menu (which includes marshmallow fluff) there is this option
Say Cheese Sandwich
- Pick your bread, pick your cheese, don’t pick your nose
RW, thanks for the tip. I just drove thru Livermore the other day and never noticed because it's on Second St, still, I think, off the beaten path. I saw another post about a new steakhouse on Second as well. Looks like the new theater and the movie house is attracting new eateries - a great addition to Livermore - finally. I really hope Tommies worth stopping.
