OK, so there's no table service and the line can be long, but that's the way it is. The quality of the sandwiches - especially the bread - make up for that. Sitting outside on the patio with your sandwich and drink is what it is all about.

Formerly this building was a hotel but as always time changes a lot of things. Now the corner of the former hotel is in use as a sandwich shop. Parking wasn't too much of a troube in the streets around this cafe.

From the outside you won't think much of this place. Even inside it doesn't show anything specific. However the food is really good. You go in, order your stuff and walk out or sit on the terrace outside.

Given the amount of people lining up every time it must be good and we can only confirm it. Freshly baked bread in three styles with many opportunities to create your own perfect sandwich. To be completed with some drinks.
We feel the price performace ratio is pretty good.

This shop doesn't look like much from the outside. But, their sandwiches are wonderful!
Fresh made bread and sandwiches are individually made the way you want. They have a charming outside eating area where we ate our lunch. The area is divided by bushes nicely placed so, you feel like you are eating in a somewhat private space. We were entertained while we ate by a bird in a nearby tree. This was a great place to rest and eat lunch!

This is an excellent place to grab a sandwich if you are traveling along highway 1 in California. The food was excellent and moderately priced. Note: Outdoor seating only.

This was our first visit to this Deli (and this was not one recommended by a local merchant - but thought we would try it since he had outside seating with music). We ordered a 1/2 sandwich (tuna) and a whole sandwich(turkey). Our order was mishandled in that we got 1/2 turkey and a whole tuna. I took the whole sandwich back to get it right. The person who prepared my sandwich said "thats what you ordered". I corrected him and he then said "well then that's what your husband ordered". Wrong again. I told what I ordered and that I wanted that order. So he did prepare what I originally ordered but clearly not happy - and no apology. As it turned out we were also over charged by $2.00+. Since we both only ended up with 1/2 sandwiches and we paid for one full size and one 1/2. Food was good but the service isn't worth going back for.
