Our party of four recently stopped in at Zoccoli's for a moderately late (1:30 pm) weekday lunch on our trip along the coast. Three of us had made to order cold sandwiches; the fourth member of our party had a cold sandwich that was already made and wrapped for sale. We were lucky enough to snag the last empty table outside, where we enjoyed our meal. All the sandwiches were good; I especially enjoyed my turkey and cranberry.

The menu is quite extensive, with cold and hot sandwiches, salads, soups, pastas and daily specials. If you think you would like to stop here, I would recommend looking at the menu in advance online if possible--will speed up the process and give you time to study the choices.

There is a multi-story parking garage just a short walk away if street parking is a problem. It's also close to the beach, so it would make a good spot to pick up a few things for a picnic.

A traditional deli where they make sandwiches fresh to your order. Staff is helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Outdoor seating is fun. A good value. Santa Cruz downtown is a gem--great for an afternoon stroll.

This deli has great fresh food and wonderful breads. I especially liked the eggplant parmesan on ciabatta bread sandwich. The lasagna was also very tasty. The outdoor seating was convenient. It's located on Pacific Ave. which is the main downtown street in Santa Cruz with a lot of dining and shopping options.

Wow, what great sandwiches. Try the shrimp salad sandwich, it tastes like a shrimp louie on french bread. All of their specialty sandwiches are great.
