Sarnies, sammies, butties: whatever you call them, where is your favourite sandwich in Vancouver?
I'm often frustrated by how hard it seems to be to find a tasty, quality sandwich with good bread and fillings when I'm out and about in Vancouver. I don't want to limit the conversation but let's not include banh mi or hamburgers here as those have their own threads. Otherwise, hot or cold, chain or independent, cheap or pricey, anything goes as long as it is worth the calories. Bonus points (from my perspective, anyway) if your choice is on the west side :-).
I'll start by mentioning Coco et Olive, where they do a mean French version of panini. And you can get a great Intelligentsia coffee to go with it. Not a cheap sandwich but good value for me.

Finch's - I like how they take the time to pleat their meat.
Sciue - nice selection of Italian style sandwichs and similar (eg Roman Pizza)

La Grotta del Formaggio - haven't been in a while but I recall liking the variety of meats and add-ons
Las Tortas - I am no judge of authenticity for Mexican tortas, but I enjoy the warm tasty mess of flavours

I really enjoy Tartine's real bird sandwich. The bread is made fresh that morning in house and the turkey is roasted in house as well. I love the fresh quality of their ingredients.
