I don't typically eat sandwiches but this places draws me every time I am in Downtown HMB. Get the homemade walnut olive bread! Nice outdoor space for eating.

Went there as a brief stop for lunch en route to San Francisco. Found it to serve extremely tasty sandwiches with homemade bread and fresh ingredients! Lovely area to sit outside and is extremely close to Route 1. Very good value for money and extremely filling. Located in a very nice town with lovely shops.

The sandwiches, made with homemade bread , are fantastic! Add a bag of chips and a bottle of tea for a really great lunch. Outside the patio tables are a perfect place to enjoy your lunch break. The acoustic guitarist is a nice touch!

Great sandwich. Fresh baked sliced bread is the secret to a great sandwich. They had horseradish for my sandwich was nice. Price was fair I would come back.

We are super picky about deli sandwiches and this one is at the top of the list. Only our second trip to HMB and let me tell you this was one of the reasons we came back on our way home from S.F. Last year when we discovered it, the eye catcher was 'homemade bread' .Delicious sandwiches and even worth... More

Best sandwiches ever! Homemade bread. Soups are splendid! Secure a place in line with all the other wise customers. Hopefully the dear beautiful Swedish Marie will be there to welcome you and ring you up. Fun musician/singer on patio and if you are lucky, a kitty will peek through the gorgeous plants to observe you.

I am not a sandwich person, but every time I leave the beach, I swing through town and stop here to get a sandwich. There is almost always a line, so be patient, it's worth it. The bread is so good and the avocado and egg is the best! It's big enough to share, and it's absolutely worth the wait... More

Love their sandwiches made on fresh homemade bread. Ingredients are fresh and tasty. Nice patio for outside dining and enjoying the fresh air. Always buy a loaf of their bread to take home.

The bread the sandwiches are made on is so fresh it's perfect. The patio is one of my favorites in HMB and that is impressive considering you cannot see the ocean. The dog friendly aspect is a huge plus as well!

This sandwich was amazing! No exaggeration. They make their own bread fresh every day. I had the turkey and my husband had the ham. We each ranked the sandwiches as one of the best sandwiches we've ever had.
