I'm not a huge sandwich person, however, our friend who was raised in Carmel Valley insisted that we visit this place when we were there for a conference. Little, unassuming looking market. Wow, what amazing sandwiches. Apparently this is quite a renowned place. The bread was all homemade. There were 4 of us that went that day and every single one of us LOVED our sands (they are HUGE by the way). I had a Reuben and it was outstanding! The owner was quirky and fun. East coast guy, I believe.

Love this place the sandwiches here are huge and very tasty. Its no joke. We were too full to get desserts but just seeing them they looked delish. Will definitely try next time. We took ours to go and enjoyed eating them on the 17 mile drive in Carmel.

This is no joke! This place beats out our favorite deli in Florence, Italy. Yes, the sandwiches are monstrous, but they are also MOUTHWATERING. Every type of topping known to man is available, and meats and cheeses galore. The softest, most delicious Italian bread, too. It gets better. The owner (ugh, cannot remember his name, I'm so sorry!) is wonderful. He let us in as he was trying to close up and get to 5p mass. He unlocked the door and got to work! THANK YOU! Chips, drinks, cake, goodies, beer... It's all here. We loaded up and went picnicking at Point Lobos after the 17-mile drive, and the food was still fresh and delicious. Not at all soggy. We will be back. Can't wait to try more combinations!

Awesome sandwiches. My husband and I shared a chicken sandwich with cheese and avocado and we were both bursting at the seams. Muster visit when in Monterey. Our huge sandwich was like $12. Awesome deal!
