Party Sandwiches

I will be hosting a garden tea party following a baptism in a few weeks. Any suggestions for really good party sandwiches? I live in the west end but am willing to travel to get a tasty assortment of sandwiches. Thanks!

  1. We got some cutesy ones from Pickel Barrel for a baby shower once. It's cheaper if you order the boxes and platter them yourself, or you can order the platters. I think Whole Foods also does crustless tea sandwiches.

    1. You should look at Merci Mon Ami. They are a really good lunch restaurant in Liberty Village and make amazing sandwiches. I know they do catering and we have had their sandwiches for a couple of work functions.


      1. I love Franco Freshy's sandwiches. Great variety, good quality ingredients and reasonable prices. http://www.francofreshy.com/menu_cold...

        1. Lesley's Party Sandwiches. That's her bread and butter..so to speak!

            INHO...Centre Dels is the best, with Leslie's in 2nd. Pickle Barrel does not compare.

                Bought some PB a couple of weeks ago..they are getting worse..... Centre Street Deli are the best!

            1. While I agree that Lesley's Party Sandwiches and Centre St Deli do great party sandwiches and I have had bad experiences with Pickle Barrel, i have only seen them offer only dairy egg, salmon, cream cheese. I suspect if you are looking for something a bit more upscale look elsewhere.

                Thank you so much for all the suggestions. I'm going to make some calls and maybe do a few taste tests before deciding - but everything I've looked at so far looks delicious.

                  If you wanted more 'upscale', try Urban Fare at Bathurst and St. Clair. I was at an event and they did a fantastic party sandwich platter...different than the more traditional (fish and egg based) party sandwich places.

              2. Daiters on Bathurst have really good party sandwiches

                1. I was at a business meeting at Yonge/St Clair where they bought in sandwiches (party-style platters) for lunch.
                  They were so good I followed up and discovered they were from Boccone (Yonge south of St Clair). The retail selection is excellent (I'm now a regular), but have never ordered the platters.
                  I can't find a website but the catering # is 960 1500

                    I've had a catered lunch from Boccone too and everyone really enjoyed it. Here's the website

                      I had my 'flash' turned off (as it crashes ny browser) so I got nothing useful when I originally went to their site.
                      Works fine now.

                        Great suggestions - thank you! I've decided to get a selection of sandwiches from Centre Street Deli and a selection from Boccone. And now I'll just hope it doesn't rain!
