Don't let the unpretentious look of the place deter you! The sandwiches here are first rate, piled high with delicious and top quality ingredients, and served with real pickles. My husband had a pastrami and I had an egg salad, and they were both very satisfying and delicious. There is a simple patio outside or tables inside, but we were... More

Goodie's is a must stop place where we have lunch during our month long stay in Pacific Grove. They offer a wide choice of hot and cold sandwiches which are made to order using only the freshest of ingredients. Sandwich portions are large enough to share for the lighter eater. Dining space is somewhat limited both inside and outside. In... More

All the sandwiches are made fresh while you wait and they are good sized. Big enough to share with a delicious bag of crunchy chips of course.

I have been going here for years. I bring my family and friends to eat here as well. The sandwiches are great and a good size. They offer a few side dishes and of course nice big cookies. It is not cheep, a sandwich will run about $7 each or more. This is where I go when I want to... More

This small shop offers homemade soups for those foggy days and fabulous sandwiches to eat in or take out. Plan for lunch only and the atmosphere is like a very clean McDonalds. You order at the counter and food is delivered at the table. The attraction is several types of very fresh breads, generous and tasty fillings and quick and... More

This was a great find, now in an old gas station, the patio was Rooney, offered umbrellas, the salads were huge, with a lot of choices: we had the chicken Caesar & was big enough to share. We also tried their crab sand which was very good. Tried to go back, but we were to early.

Great choices, fresh breads, large sandwiches hot or cold. We've eaten here a number of times and always enjoyed our meals. Staff is very friendly, the deli is so clean with inside and out eating areas. Try a Pacific Grove's bottle of Sparky's root beer too!

This place on Lighthouse Ave in Pacific Grove is a good place for sandwiches. Our sandwiches were large -- very generous -- and the price was fair. The Reuben on good rye bread is excellent.

There is nothing fancy about this very popular sandwich shop but the owners are sure to impress with their ability to produce large, fresh, reasonably priced sandwiches in a tidy, bright eating area. From the outside, it doesn't look that inviting, but you won't be disappointed.
