Toronto's best sandwich spots

Did you know that you’re living in the unofficial sandwich capital of the world? Toronto is home to sandwich names that read like love poems, snack stops devoted to endless spins on a favourite ingredient, and places offering good old-fashioned BLT and grilled cheese - the Earl of Sandwich would be proud.

Brock Sandwich

1
1260 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1N5

Brock has raised the bar for the traditional lunchtime sandwich with a menu of mini-gourmet meals on a bun. Some of the favourites include Vegan Crispy Fennel, Shrimp and Giant Squid Po’boy, and the Strip Bacon Sandwich. Ask about gluten-free options. Sides include homemade coleslaw, Yukon Gold Paprika Fries and Truffled Poutine.

The Stockyards

2
699 St Clair Ave W, Toronto, ON M6C 1B2

This spot is smoking hot. The pulled pork and brisket sandwiches revel in slow-cooked, hickory-smoked goodness with toppings like fried green tomatoes, green apple, lemon aioli and mustard house slaw. There’s even a smoked grilled cheese sandwich for vegetarians, and the breads are good, too. How does thyme-scented sourdough sound to you? Yummy!

Black Camel

3
4 Crescent Rd, Toronto, ON M4W 1S9

They’ve got all your favourites - like tasty BBQ pulled pork shoulder (seasoned and cooked for 12 hours), pulled roast chicken and a roasted vegetable option. Two toppings of your choice are included, with more available for a small extra charge. Pick from such delights as pesto mayo, caramelized onions and roasted eggplant to customize as you like.

Bahn Mi Boys

4
392 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M5V 2A6

One look at this menu and you’ll quickly decide on a fave and come back to it, again and again. The sandwiches are Asian-themed with five-spice pork belly, Kalbi beef and duck confit alongside a veggie option of lemongrass tofu. A side of Kimchi fries is a must. Service is fast no matter how busy and to top it off, it’s one of the most budget-friendly spots in the area.

The Fish Store & YuNes' Sandwiches

5
657 College St, Toronto, ON M6G 1B7

One of the most underrated snacks has got to be the tasty fish sandwich. The Fish Store specializes in all things seafood and that goes for sandwiches, too. Take your pick from nearly 20 fresh fish and they’ll prepare it for you on the spot with an option of whole wheat bread if you prefer. The same applies to their Fish Burritos in white or wheat tortillas. Soups and salads round out the menu.

Sky Blue Sky Sandwich Company

6
333 King St E, Toronto, ON M5A 3X5

These sandwiches are worth trying for their names alone. When was the last time you had a “I Must Be High” with fried eggs on three-cheese bread, or ‘”I’m the Man Who Loves You” made of smoked chicken covered in fresh toppings and ricotta cheese, then spiked with chile cilantro and red pepper spread? Hold Christmas in your hand with the “One Wing,” a sliced turkey sandwich with cream cheese, stuffing and cranberry sauce on cranberry and cream cheese bread. They’ll also mix and match ingredients to your heart’s content.
