Food and ambience

Location and contact

We make sandwiches that are high quality, of good value, and prepared with skill as well as heart. The essence of our food simple, fast, delicious is the foundation of Meat & Bread. Our first shop opened its doors in 2010 in the historic Gastown neighbourhood of Vancouver, Canada, and, since then, we have opened another shop in Vancouver as well as in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighbourhood and in downtown Calgary’s historic Grain Exchange building.

A very popular place to eat. If you go at lunchtime definitely expect lineup. Honestly the sandwiches are pretty amazing. My all-time favourite is the pork though. Definitely worth the lineup.

Came here on recommendations from others... And so glad we did... The sandwiches are simple yet so darn delicious. We had the porchetta version, which was amazing, but I have since been drwaming of the meatball version... Or perhaps the chicken...

This is a great place for a quick lunch. There are plenty of sandwich options either to have in or take out. I had the meatball sandwich and it was delicious. My husband also really enjoyed his slow cooked beef sandwich. We recommend!

A menu with 5 sandwiches is almost expected with a name like Meat & Bread - but what great 5 sandwiches. 1st visit has to be a Porcetta - and it lives up to the hype. We left the town the next day and regretfully...More

A visit to Gastown is like turning back the clock and
stepping into a bygone era. With the distinction of
being Vancouver's oldest neighborhood, the many
plaques that stud the cobbled streets of Gastown tell
the story of its colorful past, giving Vancouver's
history a more lively presence here than anywhere
else. Having been originally founded around a popular
worker's saloon, it's no wonder that today some of

Yes they serve alcohol. I have had craft beers there and I noticed cider. I can't say what other options are on the menu.

Presumably, this question is about Vancouver, Canada. The answer is yes, all cab companies in Vancouver take credit cards. Typically, the taxi vehicles are equipped with wireless payment terminals.
