    Great spot for a sandwich or a salad when you're on the go. I've been coming here since I was a kid and the fact they've been around so long is a testament to how good they are.

    I usually go for the turkey bacon avocado sandwich on sourdough bread and love the sandwich. Their chef salad is also great with large chunks of ham throughout.

    Love this spot and will drop by whenever in town!

    The best sandwich I ever had in my life. The Italian Special @GardenLiquor&Deli

    I cannot believe how good it is but then again it has Pesto sauce.

    This is a great spot for unique sandwich creations in a liquor store like environment. Some of the messier sandwiches are made by slicing a pocket into the end of a roll and filling the bread with the sandwich. Two great examples are BBQ beef and meatball. Both traditionally wearable sandwiches made mess free with this awesome approach.

      The meatball sandwich is my favorite, the bread pocket is first lined with the cheese of your choice and then filled with a tasty saucy blend of meatballs peppers and onions. Super tasty and the lack of mess makes it a joy to devour.

      They have a huge selection of beverages liquor store style. You can even crack a beer and eat your sandwich at one of the few tables they have inside. I'm not sure if you could crack a bottle of whiskey inside but that's not usually a lunch drink anyways...

       If your in the area this place is worth checking out, give'm a try!

    Can't go wrong when you go here. I always come here to pickup a sandwich to take whenever I go hiking or to the beach. Tuna sandwich is good and so is the veggie sandwich

    I really like this place! The outdoor seating is so cute. We enjoyed the lovely singer playing the guitar outside :) The bread had a unique texture which makes the sandwich so good. Don't find anything super unique about it but it's an adorable area in Half Moon Bay and convenient to pick up sandwiches and take it to the beach or to a picnic! For some reason, took a kind of a while to get our sandwiches (~30-40 min) but it may have just been because it was a busy day. I got an egg salad sandwich on rye! (Had to take out some cheese because it was a bit much for me)
