ISO Veggie Sandwich w/ good bread

Twice this week I had the veggie sandwich at Subway made with fresh veggies -- not the veggie patty . Yep, I said twice. That makes me wonder how much better a veggie sandwich can be at the places known by Chowhounds for making them extra good. To me bread is the foundation of a sandwich and great bread is needed to build a great sandwich. Who has great bread and builds veggie sandwiches right?

        Mendocino Farms is VERY good, thanks again ipsedixit! Just beware that they are closed on weekends. Now if only I could find another casual place with similar sandwiches, open on weekends life would be good!

          The Drunk'n Goat sandwich is amazing, and I don't even like cheese ...

    1. Not a sandwich but the "Salad Pizza" at Abbots Pizza is very good in my opinion ( only had it at the Venice location ).. Its my go to slice when I dine there. Sometimes I wait for it to be made. Its really good.. I too find myself eating the veggie subs at subway if Im in an area that I dont know and want something healthy..

      1. way off the beaten path and tremendously expensive, but the Ritz at Dana Point serves a fantastic veggie sandwich on great bread.
        the wonderful view and obsequious service add another $10 to the price, and don't forget that even with a validation, they charge for parking.

        1. Domingo's Italian Deli in Encino makes a pretty darn nice Italian-style one, on some crusty rolls.

          1. The rolls they put the sandwiches on at Bay Cities are superior -- crusty, well-textured, good flavored, fresh. I don't know if they make a veggie sandwich per se, but wow you could construct a great one -- they have sliced cooked eggplant, roasted peppers, a choice of cheeses. Get it with the regular condiments, including the mild or hot pepper spread, or maybe add some other items from the case -- maybe have them slice some of the marinated mushrooms. Or keep it really simple and just do the eggplant parm sandwich there with marinara sauce on their fantastic bread.

              I have had both the eggplant, and also "tweaked" one to become veggie. I will probably get slammed for this but I do like the veggie offerings at Marmalades...(here it comes).
