Looking for the best sandwiches in Edmonton?

There is nothing more comforting than eating a big old-fashioned sandwich. Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, dinner – even dessert – you can never really go wrong with choosing a sandwich as your meal.

We’ve never met a sandwich we didn’t like, and there are plenty of places to get them. But which ones to get?

Here are our picks for the best sandwiches in Edmonton.

Beef Dip

Sides include fries, chips, and potato salad, but obviously, it’s the sandwiches that will become the stars of the show.

Veggie sandwiches on fresh bread, packed with sprouts and house-made spreads, will be available, and so will Cubanos, egg salad, and Italian sandwiches with cheese on muffuletta, a Sicilian sesame bread. If you’re craving a house-made meatball sub on fresh bread baked with melted cheese and marinara sauce, then this is the spot to hit.

Out of any of them, if we had to choose, we’d pick the Beef Dip.

Address: 10335 – 83rd Avenue, Edmonton

This cafe has a chèvre grilled cheese with whipped goat cheese, aged white cheddar, and caramelized onion on house milk bread, so we felt it needed to be included here.

Address: 10150 100th Street NW #101, Edmonton

If you’re looking for an Italian deli style on the spicy side, go with the Papi. That one comes topped with mortadella, hot capicola, chorizo, manchego, lettuce, tomato, pickles, a dijon-mayo, and a veg sauce.

There’s something for everyone here.

The Sammy Baby is Asian-inspired with gochujang, cucumber, spring mix, cilantro, red onions, and mushrooms. Then there’s also the Mexican-inspired Carlo sandwich topped with refried beans, tomato, lettuce, tortilla, cilantro, chipotle, and a plant-based “chicken.”
