Berkshire Sandwiches?

ECVikes Oct 27, 2009 09:57 AM

My wife and I are new to the Berkshires, and while we've been discovering some great local restaurants (and a few disappointments), I’m still on the lookout for a deli/bakery sort of place with great sandwiches. I’m a huge fan of The Black Sheep in Amherst, so finding something along those lines out here would really help complete my new country existence! Any thoughts?

      I would have mentioned Rubi's but I avoid his establishments because of the serious lack of service and hospitality by the owner and staff.

        Thanks for the tips. I've walked by Rubiner's a few times, and I've heard that the cheese selection is very good (though pricey). Didn’t realize there was a restaurant there as well.

        Someone else recommended Papa Charlie’s in Williamstown. It’s a bit of a schlep for me, but it sounds like it's worth checking out.

      Tough to find..... Try The Marketplace Deli in Sheffield, Cakewalk in Lee. There are loads of places to get sandwiches, but for some reason nothing that rivals The Black Sheep.
