“Yummy and Salty.”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is a new find in Vancouver for me, but not for other people because there was a crazy line out the door. Almost as soon as I was in line, a woman walked up to be and started attacking me for information.

"What do they serve here? Have you eaten here before? What is that man carving? Why are there so many people?"

While I tried to answer her questions as calmly and honestly as I could (you do not want to further rile up a confused and possibly hungry woman), I watched the other customers and the employees inside.

It was very quickly clear that this dedicated staff knew exactly what they were doing. Chop up the porchetta, add the salsa verde, top with crunchy porchetta-roll skin, and pass on down the line. With a dabble of mustard on the side and Fentiman's Curiosity Cola, the whole thing was yummy and salty (my favorite combination).

“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We went based on reviews and it was even better than expected. We had a late start to the day so went for brunch. We both ended up having the porch extra sandwiches which were amazing and washed them down with local beers. Really had to try the bacon icecream sandwich and I thought it would be weird but it was delicious. Really great location as from there you wander into cool gas town. A bit pricey but great freshly made food so I don't mind paying a bit more

“So glad I stopped in”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

We were just around the corner at Float House and as I was looking to park, I noticed Meat & Bread and we decided to lunch there afterwards. Well, what a find! A good sized line up but we were still in and out in under 15mins with two extremely delicious sandwiches. Really really tasty, great service, we'll definitely be back!

“Yum!”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Super-tasty, super-size sarnies, great laid-back atmosphere, unusual choices of soft drinks (our teenage son loved the intergalactic root beer!), handily located in Gastown.
