The Best Sandwich Spots

Yes, we all have the ability and ingredients to make a sandwich at home, but it just tastes so much better when the experts make it. Is it the fresh-baked bread, the secret sauce or the insanely thin-sliced deli meat? Whatever it is, I'm sold! Check out these places for a great sandwich and don't forget the chips!

Beyond Peanut Butter and Jelly

Captain Submarine

2486 Sacramento St, San Francisco, CA 94115

This family-owned sandwich shop off of Fillmore makes a mean sub sandwich. Most people people order to go, but there are a few tables inside and out.

Freddie's Sandwiches

300 Francisco St, San Francisco, CA 94133

You might have to drive all the way to the ocean for this place, but it is well worth it. Giant submarine sandwiches made with fresh ingredients on freshly baked bread. Ask for the daily special!


3490 California St, San Francisco, CA 94118

This is the place for Italian staples and ingredients, but you can also order a custom-made sandwich from the deli or choose from one of their many panini options (hot or cold).

Mollie Stone's Markets

2435 California St, San Francisco, CA 94115

One-stop shopping at Mollie's. Get your groceries and your sandwich, too. Order at the deli with many options for bread, meat and toppings. These sandwiches run large so be warned!

Blue Barn Gourmet

2105 Chestnut St, San Francisco, CA 94123

If you want something more gourmet than the usual deli sandwich than head over to the Blue Barn. Try the BBQ chicken sandwich.
