Even if you don’t drink wine or care about it at all, Palm City is worth knowing as a place to get a really good footlong hoagie that can potentially feed you for the greater part of a week. At the minimum, their stacked Italian heros make for a super generous split between two people, and the cauliflower hoagie with asparagus and ginger lemongrass aioli is just as good as the Italian meat combo, if not better. If you do care about wine, most bottles are under $50, and they’ve recently transitioned to serving onsite, but aren’t taking online pre-orders for the time being.

Italian American Hoagie

A quick way to raise your brain’s happy-making serotonin levels is to eat this hoagie layered with a spicy ’nduja sauce, mozzarella slices, Parmesan, mortadella, the salami-like finocchiona, shaved onion, and lots of arugula. While you might be able to finish one slowly throughout the course of a day—these sandwiches are that big—it’s much easier to share.

Spicy Garlic Cheese Spread

Palm City is known for hoagies, but the spicy garlic cheese spread is actually one of the best items on the food menu. Roasted garlic, herbs, and Calabrian chili are blended with white cheddar and served with thin and crispy crostini. Make sure you take any leftover spread to go so you can put it on everything in your fridge the next day.

Roasted Cauliflower Hoagie

One of the city’s more notable vegetarian sandwiches is also one of the heftiest—enough for two meals or two people. Roasted cauliflower is paired with a lemongrass and ginger sauce, hot honey, avocado, pickled carrots, cilantro, and fried shallots. It’s a lovely combo of sweet, sour, acid, and crunch.

Chopped Salad

Their version of a chopped salad features a jammy egg, cucumber, marinated chickpeas, and radish in a light tahini vinaigrette. It’s a good thing to split alongside a hoagie, yet could also be its own worthy main course that won’t make you feel sad you’re not eating a sandwich.

Dutch Apple Mini Pie

Desserts at Palm City rotate, but if you’re lucky enough to be here on a day when the Dutch apple mini pie is happening, don’t skip it—even if you just get it to go to enjoy for later. An almond oat crumble topping and a cinnamon caramel apple filling make this one of the area’s most memorable apple pies.
