Meat & Bread is a small sandwich chain that started in Vancouver, and now has a location in South Lake Union. It’s just a counter with a few outdoor tables, so it’s great if the weather’s nice, or if you want something to take back to your office. All of the sandwiches here are awesome, but their porchetta (with salsa verde and pork cracklins) is a must-order at least once.
