Tudor and Spunky's is a locals' place. Always good, consistent, and friendly. Great value, too. The owner, Tom Blake, and his staff work hard to deliver and do not disappoint.

We stopped after our whale watching tour and on our way to Laguna Beach. The place is fantastic. Orders are placed at the counter and made to order. The employees were very friendly and patient as we non-locals gaped at the vast choices. The salad was extremely fresh and the sandwiches were incredible. I highly recommend this stop. We would...

Family had the tuna and egg salad, and Tutor (thin sliced meats and cheese.) and turkey and avocados. All the sandwiches were ample and very good. Fresh ingredients. Crisp fresh veggies of our choice. Very busy for 2 pm Saturday but there we 9 or 10 people working. Got 3 yummy soups and went back to our resort hotel for... More

There isn't a ton of places to eat in Dana Point, but this place is great to either sit down with a big group or grab and go to the beach. The sandwiches have funny names and they are large enough to fill you up.

Great sandwiches, my favorite are the banquettes. Turkey or other healthy choices are always available and easy to personalize. I've enjoyed this place for 10 years and its consistently outstanding. Flexible choices and always eager to please.

If you believe the ads this is a great sandwich shop. We went there for sandwiches and encountered a unfriendly order taker and observed the woman making the sandwiches had no gloves on. This seemed a little odd to me and not healthy. The sandwiches were large but were sort of bland. Next time I will look somewhere else for... More

A nice varied menu and the sandwiches on various breads are made fresh and have fresh ingredients. I usually get something with avocado on it and they give you ample portions. The soup is usually outstanding but often run out so get there early enough to get some.

This place is in Dana Point..we grabbed sandwiches to go and had a picnic on the beach! Their food is out of this world! My mouth is watering thinking about coming back to Tutor's. I wonder how they came up with the name?

I like to visit Tutor & Spunky's occasionally. They have good sandwiches. In my opinion, they are a bit on the expensive side, but not too bad. Everything I've had there has always been delicious. The only thing I wish they would do differently is offer fresh roasted turkey instead of deli turkey. Also, be prepared for a funky setup... More
