If you are in the Shores in La Jolla and looking for a sandwich shop try the Cheese Shop. It has been there for years and has a good selection of sandwiches. Take away one of their oatmeal cookies for desert. Take your sandwiches down to the beach and have a picnic. There are a few talbes outside otherwise it is a take away.

I will definitely be going back. This place was recommended to my friend and I by several locals, and it lived up to the hype.
It's basically a sandwich shop with really fresh and generous ingredients. A little pricey for a sandwich, but it's so good you won't notice. :)

This is a cute deli...lots of choices. My son loved the candy selection. The food was so fresh and tasted amazing! The owner is super friendly and most welcoming.

I ate here twice. I tried a bit of about 6 different sandwiches and my favorite was the pork loin one. It is DELICIOUS. The staff is great.They are friendly and inviting.

The reason they are short of the coveted 5 stars is because they do not have a very organized system for handling customers, especially during the busy lunch rush. You have to literally ask everyone standing around if they're in line to order, to pick up/pay or just browsing. It is a little hectic.

But because their food and service is so great, they get the 4 star mark .

I don't know how long The Cheese Shop has been around , but it looks like a long time, which attests to their popularity. They have a varied list of items - we were there for lunch, so we ordered sandwiches. Mine was delicious pork, but we passed all of them around and there wasn't a bad one in the bunch. They have an interesting selection of beverages and candy, with dining on the sidewalk. Since it was a beautiful day, it was perfect for dining al fresco. Of course, when isn't it a beautiful day in La Jolla?
