Good sandwiches to go in Marin

Encinitan May 7, 2010 10:32 AM

I will be in Marin this weekend to do a lot of touring and hiking (Muir Woods and Point Reyes National Seashore) starting in the early morning. I would like recommendations for good sandwich places in Marin (deli, market or other) for to go orders. My hotel room in San Rafael will have a refrigerator.

    The deli at the Cowgirl Creamery in Pt. Reyes Station has great sandwiches and other things to go.

      Parkside Cafe in Stinson Beach is usually a pretty reliable option, although more for hot sandwiches that should be eaten immediately (burgers, etc.), not stuff to bring back and refridgerate

        I like Mollie Stone's in Greenbrae Shopping Center. Good variety of meats, cheeses and breads. They also have an extended salad and olive bar and deli if you want to buy ingredients, store in your refrigerator and make up fresh yourself. Nice selection of fresh fruit, some sushi although I haven't tried that.

          I rarely eat store-made sandwiches, but I notice a constant crowd at Safeways, and incredibly good prices.

            If you are passing through Sausalito check out Venice Gourmet. http://www.venicegourmet.com/cgi-loca...
            I live in New Mexico now but I always try and go back to visit them when I am there. Great sandwiches, reasonably priced and a family-owned business.

              I second Mollie Stone's. You can dictate the entire composition of the sandwich and the ingredients are great.

              Didn't realize it was closed on weekends, but for when you visit during the week:

                  Second the recommendation for Michael's sourdough-and-sliced-meats style sandwiches. The just-baked quality of the bread is irresistible. Sandwiches are big enough to share.

                    Thanks to all who responded to my request.

                    I had the opportunity to try 2 of your suggestions. I got a vegetarian sandwich at the deli at Cowgirl Creamery in Point Reyes Station. The sandwich was quite delicious, although petite. It had grilled veggies and goat cheese. I really dug the goat cheese, and the baguette it was served on was excellent. I think the baguette was locally produced in Point Reyes Station as well.

                    I stayed in Marin till late afternoon Monday, so I had the opportunity to try Michael's sourdough. I got the turkey and roast beef. That is one massive industrial size sandwich, which is appropriate since the deli was in an industrial area of Marin. I ended up eating it for both breakfast and lunch. Although, the turkey and roast beef was good (and Michael's cooks it themselves), I thought that the mass of the sourdough baguette (which they also prepare) somewhat overwhelmed the meat and cheese in the sandwich. But I enjoyed it nonetheless.
