Established in 1983, we have been serving award winning sandwiches for 27 years. Local products including 7 breads and 12 cheeses, freshly sliced daily to make custom sandwiches right before your eyes. Still the best after all these years. A local favorite is the fresh Dungeness Crab sandwich on Fridays only, call ahead, they sell out quickly. Fast, friendly, courteous service...don't let the line scare you away. Big enough to share one with a friend.

Great sandwiches in Arcata or Eureka

Selections of bread and fillings; more fresh and customized than Subway. Great stop for a quick sandwich.

These are good sandwiches, no doubt about it but there is nothing special about them and they are not worth the money. Save money and make an amazing sandwich at home.

My husband introduced me to this place. It was all about the crab sandwiches! But one summer day, we decided to get reubens. There was a long line, the joint was packed, and after we ordered, the manager came back inside went into the kitchen, came back out front and got upset with the 2 girls trying to manage everything...

This is the place to get a good picnic sandwich especially if you are passing through Arcata and need someplace easy to reach (it is just off highway 101). One option for a picnic spot is 2 blocks up the street at the plaza - a large grassy square surrounded by shops that is good for people watching and getting... More

If you are looking for an epic deli sandwich, this is your stop! Perfect for picnics or sitting at home. They have such great flavor combinations. My favorites are the Muffaletta, the Cobb and the Tuna (made to order any way you wish). Lot's of bread selections, but ask for the Brio roll. These are BIG sandwiches!

We were recommended to grab a sandwich here whilst visiting Arcata - a must go - so we couldn't pass it up. And we must admit, the sandwiches were massive, delicious, and worth the money. However the lady who served us was actually pretty rude and stand-offish to us. Also she was extremely condescending and patronizing to her colleague which... More
