Nothing more to say here......sandwiches are truly great. Great service, too! And if they have it, go for the tri tip.

We stopped here on our way to Paso Robles having found this place on Yelp. I am not a sandwich person but this was likely the best Turkey Avocado sandwich I've ever had. The turkey was so tender. Husband had the hot chicken breast sandwich...More

Been here once for lunch. I was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. My husband had meatball sandwich and I had a turkey sandwich. They were both very tasty. The owner/cook provided great service.

This is our local "go-to" place for sandwiches, meat/cheese plates, etc...for winestasting days. Its family owned and operated and the very best artisan cheeses and meats are utilized at a very fair price. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this place.

This place is very under rated - It's hard to find & doesn't have much curb appeal at all but when you step inside it's another story. Great people run this place - sorta like talking to family but more importantly the food is great....More

We have had the sandwich plates as well as the meat and cheese plates here. Both are fantastic for a day of wine tasting or other exploring in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. They make everything to order using only the finest in meats and...More
