“Surprisingly delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Walked over to grab a sandwich after getting to our hotel after a long flight. We didn't expect much, but our meals were both fantastic. The place was small which made it feel comfortable and cozy. Staff were very nice too!

“I pick my hotel based on proximity to Specialty's!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Specialty's is the kind of place that will ruin your diet....in a delightful, delicious, amazing way. The pastries are amazing, and the sandwiches are big and tasty. When I stay in this South San Francisco area, I always choose hotels nearby, so that I can swing by Specialty's on my way into the office. I pick up a breakfast sandwich or quiche, and always get at least one cookie or pastry for a mid-morning snack. This particular Specialty's location is hard to find - it's in the first floor of some office buildings on Gateway - and it's small. Not much room for inside dining, but they serve a FULL menu (sandwiches, soups, etc), and have outside dining for when there is nice weather. I can't say enough how much I love this place - the food is sooooooo good!
