Subs near Dave's Fresh Pasta

I am taking a friend to Daves for some fresh pasta, and other goodies on Saturday.

He suggested we get subs and take them to go. I said great and checked their menu.
But Daves sandwich menu, is not the typical sub shop menu.

Any ideas? Or can I just order a sub at Daves. I checked the menu and it doesn't say much.

Or, is there a great little sub shop I should stop into. Thanks guys.

  1. Angelina's is about a 5-minute walk up Holland street, and does very respectable classic Italian-style subs.

    1. Sessa's on Highland Avenue (just around the corner from Mike's - right at the intersection of College, Elm, Holland and Highland) is an Italian deli and grocery that sells sandwiches (subs) that are arguably among the best in Somerville. Take home some fresh marinated artichokes to go while you are at it! :)

        Wow, considering I live in Davis Square, I can't believe Sessa's fell off my radar screen. Enthusiastic second. If you're specifically craving subs (lergnom is definitely right that Dave's panini are quite good), you can't do much better in the area.

          The worst eggplant parm I've ever had was from Sessa's. I went because of the rave and was sorely disappointed when I saw the woman pull a tray from the fridge and put it in the microwave. Bland and cold.

            I usually stick with the cold cuts...very high quality and always cut fresh

              Agreed - should have clarified that in my post. Never had a hot sub there - you go to Sessa's for the deli. And it is GOOO-OOOOD!! :)

        2. The sandwiches at Dave's are excellent and there's a large variety.

            I agree - Dave's makes some of the best sandwiches (and I'm not a big fan of sandwiches). They'll customize for you, too, so you're not stuck with the menu.

              Yeah, geez, why get a boring ol' sub - the Dave sandwiches are awesome!

          2. another vote for Sessa's...fresh high quality subs

              I agree w/lergnom...the sandwiches at Dave's are delicious!

            2. The sandwiches at Dave's are very good and, overall, they have a pretty good variety with some awesome ingredients.

              If you still want to walk a bit you could head up College Avenue and then up Broadway to Victor's in Ball Square. I have raved about this place on many threads in the past. They have what I think is the best chicken parm sub in the Boston area.
