Deli in San Pedro

    Perfect for
  • Lunch

Busy Bee has hardly changed in the last 20 years, and neither have the guys who’ve been making sandwiches here for decades. There’s a seemingly permanent line at this deli, but it moves pretty fast (and you can pick up a pre-made cold-cut filled Torpedo from the counter if you’re in a rush). But the hot sandwiches are worth waiting for, especially the pastrami that they soak in jus, and serve on soft Italian bread with cheese, mustard or mayo, and pickles. Know in advance that there’s nowhere to sit here, and it’s cash only.
