Montara, a sleepy little coast-side town, where I have lived for basically my whole life. It has struggled to maintain good, local friendly eateries. Gherkins is the exception. It has (moderately) priced sandwiches and salads that are named after local landmarks. It's the thing that...More

My boyfriend and I came her for the first time in September. We had the breakfast sandwhich and fell in love with it. The "backseat driver" is so filling and delicious it is the best way to start your morning!

We've been to Gherkin's a few times - a great and easy stop if you are in the area. Sandwiches are huge so sharing is easy to do. Friendly employees, well worth a stop

Sandwiches at Gherkin's are HUGE. I think one could feed a family of four. The possible combinations are dazzling in their variety and all ingredients are first class. Eat in or take it to the beach across the street.
