An abundance of choices await here, sandwiches made in a jiffy with whatever you want, choice of size, bread & as much or less filling as you want. As we are British we have been overwhelmed with the amount of ingredients in a sandwich, here we could choose a great sandwich to suit our more moderate demands for lunch.

Not a better way to eat lunch any day than at Tutor and Spunky's, but Saturday is special, a cold beer, the large Tutor Special and a million dollar view from the back patio. Tom is a a great guy and his team deliver quality every time.

This deli consistently states that it sells "the best sandwiches in Dana Point". After 11 years of living in the local area and trying Tutor and Spunky's several times, I don't agree. The sandwiches are made up largely of oily, shredded lettuce and are densely "bready". The chicken in The Lakers sandwich, while fresh, contains both white and dark meat,... More

Stopped here to get made to order sandwiches to take to the beach. Great assortment of breads and rolls to order for sandwich. Large selection of all that you would want to put on a deli sandwich. We had no complaints. All meats and veggies were fresh and tasty. Was here at lunch with quite a crowd, but it is... More

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.
