Some of the best sandwiches that you can possibly find in Whatcom County. The staff and food are always fantastic.

The food is good and the breads served with the sandwiches are the freshest. We ordered the garden sandwich with hummus and the freshest of vegetables. Sandwich was served with a pickle wedge and chips - very good.

This artsy bakery/deli specializes in sandwiches. I tried the Gourmet Turkey sandwich on rosemary bread. It came with chips and slice of pickle. The sandwich was quite tasty. The pesto spread wasn't overpowering. The veggies were crisp and the bread was very fresh and tasty....More

We've been voted Bellingham's Best Sandwich for over ten years in a row, and there's good reason for this. We start with our fresh-baked bread (Focaccia, Rosemary, Mulitigrain, Ciabatta, just to name a few...), Add lots of tasty veggies, and all-natural meats (if you're into that sort of thing- if not, we have lots of vegetarian options), finish with great homemade spreads, and present you a gourmet sandwich fit for royalty. Special to our Railroad cafe are our flats, our take on pizza, and our grinders.
