“Seems to be where people who know go for a sandwich”

We were traveling thru Vancouver and didn't want to waste on meal of mediocrity!

Meat and Bread serves great, fresh and tasty sandwiches! Very small menu, but very large taste! Glad we found it.

“Super lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

We ate at the other location in Vancouver, on Pender Street, but the experience was the same. I had the porchetta sandwich and my wife had the special, which was a barbequed pork. Both excellent and quite filling. I advise against also getting a soup unless you are a big eater. The line moves quickly, so don't be intimidated.

“Must go for lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

Thanks to triple D I had to try the place out. It was great. Small menu means quality food and fast service. I had the porchetta and my husband had the corn beef both very good. The soup of the day was cabbage roll and the salad was chick peas, grape tomato feta and onion, excellent. If I lived it this city I would eat here all the time.

“So delicious.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

We went twice in two days- the porchetta was that good. Very filling. I found the meatball to be too fennel-y but still ate the whole thing!

It seems to always be packed but they get you in and out super quick.

“Just average?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

I saw this place on Diners, Drive In's and Dives on TV. The place was packed and lots of people in the line up which to me indicated it'd be a good place. I ordered the Porchetta sandwich and found it to be... average. It's just roast pork on bread. I found the roast pork to be really salty. The side sauce is just mustard. I just felt like it's something I could make easily at home. It was worth trying though and I did eat the whole thing. Was still hungry after.
