SEAReview

A classic grinder/hoagie/whatever you want to call them is not really a thing in Seattle, so life gets pretty tough when what you need most is a sub with a bag of potato chips. But Royal Grinders is doing its part to fill that void - some of the greatest sandwiches in the city are coming from their small counter joint. Their Italian is especially insane: the bread is crispy on the outside but thick and soft on the inside, and topped with pepperoni, salami, smoked ham, provolone, swiss, chopped pepperoncinis, and a really good ranch spread that we wished they sold by the bottle. Or kilo. Your sandwich will be huge no matter what, so split it with a friend. Or don’t.

Un Bien

You know Paseo, but Un Bien is better. It’s where the original family works now, and the Caribbean sandwiches in Ballard are the city’s best.

Dahlia Bakery

For breakfast on the go in Belltown, go for a breakfast sandwich at Dahlia (there are only four seats there). And couple coconut cream pie bites.
