Deli lunch

The best Squaw bread ever! Lots of good sandwiches here made quickly and exactly as you want them. Buy lunch here then take it to the harbor and enjoy the view!

I've been to Tutor & Spunky's ~10 occasions. Having read reviews, I keep hoping that I will have a better experience the next time. But I never do. The menu is extensive, and I've tried several different sandwiches. But every sandwich I've had here has been just ok. The prices would be ok if they were terrific sandwiches.

At the north end of town, 15 minute walk to the harbor, can be busy, good selection of real good sandwiches.

You can't beat the sandwiches at T&S Deli. There is a large selection and they are all great. The prices are reasonable for what you get and you can bet it will be made on fresh bread and and fresh meat. The new bigger Tutor & Spunky's has more seating which is nice. I don't see any changes with the... More

Just picked the place because it was close and I was pleasantly surprised. Ordered the pastrami on rye and it was very good. This place is one of those little locally owned wonder. Just try it.

You have to come here if you want a great deli sandwich! The food is fresh and the portions are large.

4 sandwiches for $37. Bread was stale and the overall Cole cut quality wasn't very good. Boars head is much better. I wouldn't go back.

One of two great sandwich shops in Dana Point! The only change in 15 years was relocating to a bigger location. You have to get the dressing on your sandwich.

A friend suggested we get sandwiches for a group from Tutor and Spunky's. We arrived and the line was out the door, which is always a good sign. As we waited for our order a customer politely asked the man behind the counter when her call in order would be ready. His response was so rude " he said hey... More

This place was legit. Great food, huge menu and was a great choice. Next to the Blue Lantern Inn which was great. Wish it was in my neighborhood.
