Best Sandwiches in Boston
I love Flour Bakery for their fresh sandwiches made with house baked whole wheat foccacia, but I am looking for other places around that are just as good (or maybe even better!).
Flour Bakery + Cafe
12 Farnsworth St, Boston, MA
My favorite sandwich for overall sensory satisfaction is the Banh Mi at Pho Viet at the Super 88/Hong Kong Supermarket food court in Allston.
1095 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA 02215
Some of my standbys:
- Fern's Problem-Solver @ Hi-Rise
- Texas Reuben @ All-Star
- "Cubano" Torta @ Olecito
- Cuban Reuben @ Highland Kitchen
- Banh Mi @ Mix and/or Pho Viet
- Presunto e Queijo Fresco @ Atasca
- grilled PBJ+banana+nutella on When Pigs Fly apple-cinnamon bread at my house (I just thought of this, and haven't actually tried it yet, but it's almost certain to be the greatest thing ever)
At the lower end, I admit to weaknesses for:
- Boston College @ Kiraz
- Chicken/Hummus @ Cheddar's
- The Navaho @ The Cheesecake Factory
My friend and I have been in search for the best traditional reuben in the City. What we have found so far is that the edge goes to Sam La Grassa. Mike's in Brookline comes close. The beef at Mikes may be a bit better, but not quite good enough.
Thoughts, comments, recomendations?
Just for an FYI, Tutto Italiano in the NE closed this summer. He reopened in the old Martignetti's space and it's now called DePasquale's Pasta; but Joe from Tutto is running it. Same great sandwiches.
Fresh Cheese reopened on Fleet in the old Tutto space..also make a good sandwich.
I'm a fan of many of the above mentioned. Hot Tomatoes makes great sandwiches; favorites of mine are meatball or bolognese. A friend loves the veggie.
Pizzeria Rico on Bromfield makes a great Thxgiving sandwich, fresh roasted turkey( no turkey roll, white and dark meat, stuffing, gravy and cranberry. Thurs only.

I love the sweet potato sandwich at Crema Cafe in Harvard Sq. Perfect combo of textures and tastes. Really amazing sandwich!
