“Nice to Find!”

The Upper Crust Sandwich Shoppe
Ranked #28 of 713 Restaurants in Riverside
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We found this small shop unexpectedly when we were walking down Main St. west of the Mission Inn. It is almost hidden behind the trees on their small patio facing the street. Cary, the owner, suggested the Pastrami Sandwich as his #1 and the Hawaiian as #2. I had the Pastrami and my wife had the Hawaiian. Neither disappointed! Her pasta salad and my coleslaw were both delicious too. All the ingredients were fresh and visually appealing as well. Prices are reasonable, service is friendly, food is delicious! A great combination. We will probably visit again when we come for the marketplace some Saturday since it takes place right outside their door. Seating inside is very limited, the front patio has four or five tables, and there are a number of tables inside the "plaza" area the shop shares with four or five other businesses.

I had the best pastrami sandwich and a delicious bread. I ordered a half sandwich but later wished I had ordered a whole one because it was soo good.

If you are interested in a quick lunch and a good value, this little shop across the street diagonally from the Mission Inn is really worth looking for. The sandwiches are fresh and made to order. Your choice of breads, toppings and sides of salad, soup or fruit. The portions are large and my order is always made to order. There are homemade cookies and big yummy brownies. Very friendly service.

I had the lunch special -- half a sandwich with salad. The tuna was very good and piled high. It came with tomato, sprouts, lettuce, mustard on a good rye bread. (You can choose other fillings and breads. The half-sandwich was more like a whole sandwich you might get at other places. Very generous portion. The salad was crisp and fresh with tomato, cucumber, and carrots with a nice ranch dressing. Outdoor and indoor seating is available.

We love this place! Great, fresh sandwiches with fabulous sides. We love the vege sandwich on squaw bread. The pasta salad and cole slaw are both excellent. The owners are friendly and always have a smile on their face. Outdoor seating is really nice too!
