Excellent sandwiches, made fresh to order - v polite staff

My husband found this by googling good local places for lunch in North Beach. And we weren't disappointed! The choice of fillings, breads and extras was slightly overwhelming, but we both really liked what we ordered. (Can't remember what we had, but it was v good.) It's worth noting, that... read more

Wow, these sandwiches are fantastic! You just don't find delis like this any more. I had the small club sandwich on soft sourdough bread and my husband had the small pastrami sandwich also on soft sourdough. Small sandwiches are plenty to eat, you could even share them but of course we didn't! There's no place to sit inside, but they... More

Great, simple, fresh sandwiches. Expect to wait. A small is large enough to share. We had the Spicy Italian. Sandwich was slightly warmed but not hot. Great refuel after walking the Coit Tower and up the road from the Wharf.

Freddy’s is the best sandwich shop in San Francisco. The meats and breads are fresh, and the sandwiches are excellent value for the price. There is a reason why both locals and tourists (hiking back from the Wharf to North Beach) line up in the small shop to get-and-go (note that there is no place to sit and eat other... More

One of my favorite places for sandwiches so far! I have tried the Falafel sandwich which is really good. This is a small shop but well recognized in the area, and been there from 1926. Dont miss!

Graat sandwiches just a few blocks droom the toerist traps. The amount of layers is huge but not overdone. Would definitely go there again

What a great old neighborhood sandwich shop that has been there since 1926. Freddie's is a local neighborhood eatery and is not a tourist trap. Prices are more than fair and the size of the sandwiches are huge. The bread is awesome and they put a large amount of meat on the sandwiches. If you order a large sandwich you... More

Stopped here for sandwiches after going on the Alcatraz cruise. It was just a short walk from the pier and priced much lower then the sandwich shops on the wharf. the bread was delicious and the sandwiches were much larger than expected. I thoroughly enjoyed my sandwich but my kids said theirs was so so. there is no place to... More

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
