Good sandwiches

We ate here one day for lunch and I have to say given that their resources are limited the sandwiches were very good.

Need a delicious lunch spot as you explore? Want a sandwich for that hike? At Degnan's they make thousands of sandwiches each day and they make it look easy. It is still a personal experience and fast! This place does not rely just on its favored place, they earn your business!

The sandwiches were okay, the Italian was actually really tasty. They were okay in size and we shared two sandwiches between me, my husband and two kids. We also got a bagel dog which was a hard on the ends, rubbery in the middle, burned dog throughout that was right out of the microwave. If I wasn't in a hurry... More

There are many ways to enjoy Yosemite, but having a great picnic at Glacier Point or any other viewpoint is the best. We had our delicious sandwiches from Degnan´s Deli & Café at Glacier Point. The tasty sandwiches are just great! Order them to your liking, go big and enjoy. Dont forget to stock up on beverages...! Bring a cooler...!

We popped in after hiking all morning and ordered two sandwiches, (one roast beef and cheddar, the other turkey and swiss), two bags of chips, and two drinks, along with a candy bar for just under $28. The sandwiches were large, and the bread was fresh. There was ample meat and extras (onions, tomatoes, and such). The chips were oversized... More

If you are on budget, there isn't really a lot of options in the National Park after a long day hike. You get the expected average sandwiches and hot dogs at the price expected for the location, with some souvenirs shopping and a convenient washrooms next to it.

After an afternoon of hiking, you could eat almost anything. A clean and well maintained facility, but very unexceptional food. I had a roast beef and cheese sandwich. Something was off with the bread as it continued to fall apart after each bite. Still, most of the available food in the park is eiither trail mix or power bars and... More

Better than average tuna salad sandwich ($6.00) but disengaged staff, other lunch items and a great location.

We were advised by another visitor to go to the deli counter rather than buying pre prepared sandwiches-was great advice. A really good range and made up to order for fussy kids!
