San Diego Sandwich Spots people like

San Diego is in my opinion, kind of a black hole for good Deli's (doesn't have to be NYC Jewish style either).

Sometimes you just want a good deli sandwich.

I like:

Mona Lisa's Deli
Olive Tree Market OB
Bread and Cie
Cheese shoppe La Jolla (kind of)
City Deli (kind of)
Miltons (kind of)

What are other peoples favorite Favorite Sandwich Spots? (I need some new ideas!)


And Which sandwich do you get there?

Mona Lisa's Deli - imported prosciutto
Olive Tree Market OB - Old Smokie

      Yeh, I was surprised that stevewag23's list included no banh mi shops. K is probably a good place to start, but ECBlvd is littered with numerous little places (like Kim Chan) that serve cheap and tasty sandwiches.

        If K was the first place I had a banh mi - I dont think I would be interested in banh mi

          The fresh baked bread croissants are what got me. Grilled pork was the first sandwich I tried there. It was hot and fresh also.

        1. Board and Brew Del Mar
          Cheese Shop La Jolla
          Antonelli's Deli El Cajon
          Girard Gourmet La Jolla
          Con Pane La Playa
          Crest Liquor & Deli Crown Point
          Chalkboard Deli Pacific Beach

          1. Krakatoa - El Chicon: ham with cheese and avocado
            It's about 8 bucks, but comes with awesome potato salad.

            1. Sandwich Club in La Jolla - Used to be one of my favorite sandwich spots but its a little out of the way so I haven't been for at least a year now. Most of their sandwiches are pretty good, I like their hot sandwiches on special the best.

              EZ-Js in PB is also really good. The BBQ Biter chicken sandwich is my favorite.
