Went for lunch and was surprised to see how crowded it was. The sandwiches we ordered were not significantly more expensive than what you get at subway for a foot long, but much better quality and more quantity. After eating half a sandwich to save the rest for later, i understood the reason for its popularity.

I love finding sandwich places separate from the huge corporate ones that have become the norm. This place was quite a surprise for me that offered great sandwiches for good prices. I had a club sandwich on toasted sourdough that was definitely one of the best clubs I've had in some time. The Italian sandwich my friend ordered was equally... More

Got take out from here to take to the beach. Our order included a burger, 2 sandwiches, and a chili dog and all were pleased with what they ordered. The kettle chips are amazing. Perfect food to take to the park or the beach on a picnic. The Italian sandwich gets two thumbs up!

This place makes the best sandwiches and soups. The owner in on premises and he's a graduate school chef, so you know it has to be good. Convenient location off I-5 on Ave Pico. Enjoy

We love the peppered turkey sandwich. Soups are custom made daily. I had the blackened fish taco special and it was top notch. Come early or come late for lunch as it can get crowded at 12-12:30. The owner is a chef and it shows in his creations.

A local in San Clemente recommend Humphrys for lunch, so we thought we would give it a try. I had a bowl of the Red Pepper Soup, my hubby and a friend had sandwiches and my brother had a burger. All of us were happy, happy, everything was so delicious. My husband and I have a new fave place to... More

The owner I found out is a culinary graduate and the flavor shows. All their choices are excellent. I've never seen any greasy spoon here. All fresh and healthy. Way above the competition. Sandwiches are stuffed full no skimping on ingredients. I would suggest 11:30 am to noon for lunch as traffic increases later when high school is out for... More

I love this place! Great atmosphere here, and very friendly service. The food has been consistently very good every time I have visited. I definitely recommend the Rachel if you like Pastrami. He's also got some good vegetarian options on the menu. Nice beer selection, TV's, comfortable booths, what else could you want. Board and Brew further up Pico is... More

very disappointed, thought it would be fresher and less greasy. We eat out a lot and were looking for a good sandwich place, unfortunately, this wasn't it.
