Fresh Subs

My coworkers and I often grab subs and sandwiches during the week for the office and always enjoy what we get. Fresh ingredients and friendly staff. Great to order, grab and go!

Maybe just a little too local. Ordered sandwiches and sat outside as inside is small and crowded. Food was OK. Not great like I thought it might be. Went inside to pay after we ate and told the cashier what we had. She had the check, and snapped back that she keeps track of things. OK..... We would have been... More

This restaurant came highly recommended. We planned on going twice but not open? seriously if you are a breakfast place in high resort area why would you not open at 6 or even 7 am? On Sunday not until 9 am? No idea what logic is behind that idea to not open for breakfast until so late. So I am... More

We got sandwiches to go from Saranac Sourdough and they were delicious. The bread is very good and the prices were reasonable for a nice, fresh sandwich. We called ahead to place our order and everything was correct.

After a morning of hiking we were looking for a sandwich place for lunch and stumbled upon Saranac Sourdough. Inside is dark and looks like it needs a good scrubbing but these types of places usually turn out to be gems, right? There is a lot to choose from, maybe too much because I gave up reading the menu and... More

We stumbled on this joint looking for breakfast after little sleep. We had great food!! You order at the counter and then they'll bring you out your food when it's ready. We had pancakes which were the best I've ever had and some great Italian breakfast sandwich which was the special of the day with homemade Italian sausage. Delish! There... More

This small deli makes the sourdough bread they use for their sandwiches. They have a good crust and soft bread. I had a specialty sandwich made with herb chicken salad and black olive bread, which was delicious The prices are good and the service is good also.

This is your typical "mom and pop" restaraunt. About eight tables, you order at the counter. Get your own drinks, silverware and napkins and the food is brought out to you. It is very good food and you get a lot of it.
