California Sandwiches coming to Scarborough

For anyone interested, this chain is finally coming to the East End. Its opening a location in the Warden and Eglinton area, right next to the new Five Guys in the plaza with the Lowes and Future Shop.

  1. I personally like California Sandwiches. I don't quite understand the hate on them from many chowhound's.

      Hate for California's? Certainly for Mustachio's at SLM, but Cali's is almost universally loved, at least I think it is. Anyhow, I'm happy to hear they are expanding to the east end.

        Not everyone loves this place but I enjoyed it every time I was in Downsview. I just wish Markham would get their act together and open one here! Just blow up the Boston Pizza and Kelsey's on Markham and 14th;)

          i've had their veal parm and their meatball sandwich.
          both were universally disgusting.

        2. re: callitasicit

          Probably because it's a chain? Chains seem to be universally despised on here for the simple fact that they ARE chains.

            Yes, by elitist foodies who hate to admit a chain can be good.

            I think the chains are over it.

        3. Thanks for posting. This could be convenient for my occasional visits to the area (Diana's, Costco, Highland Farms).

            no problem, personally im looking forward to it. I havent been for a few years, im rarely in the west end so this works out great. I also noticed on the door that they are applying for a Liquor License, so I guess they will sell alcohol there?

            I cant remember what its like in the California Sandwiches, what kinda hours do they hold, are they opened late?(Late for me is 12am-1am or later)? Im just thinking that if they sell alcohol they probably will be opened late, if so that would be great!

          2. Did you see a sign or something?

            i don't see it on the website anywhere

              yea theres a sign on the window of the unit its going in. They must have just barely started and considering it used to be a EFADS they have a good bit of work inside. Id guestimate it will open sometime in the middle of June...

            2. Thanks for posting. I ate often at the location in Downsview, but it's a far trek for me.

              1. Thanks for the heads up, I can't wait. Hope they are just as good as the other two locations I go to.
