I wandered in of for he streets because the name made me laugh. I had a delicious vegetarian sandwich with fresh made bread (plenty of meat options for the carnivores) and the owner was friendly and chatted with us between taking orders. I eventually left...More

This place was a nice surpise. It was not overpriced, and the sandwiches were very good. It is a small, local owned place and definately a place to check out when you need a snack that is not a chain or too touristy.

We tried a lot of places while in Victoria. However, we found our way back to Sammich 3 times. We always ended up sitting on the "squishy" chair :) The Chorizo sandwich was awesome! The cappuccino was also very good. Definitely give it a try.

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite here on Sunday when it seemed like everything else resembling a cafe or bakery was closed. Nice fresh sandwich ingredients, a super delicious caramel latte (my husband enjoyed his chai latte too), and a funky...More

I have visited Sammich twice now, and I'm very impressed with what the young owner has created. She is working very hard to make her product fresh, from scratch, with local ingredients-- and it shows! For lunch, had the pilgrim sandwich (turkey and cranberry on...More
