From the classic BLT to the Vietnamese banh mi, there is sure to be a sandwich to suit every taste and preference. Today we’re rounding up a list of the tastiest sandwiches we’ve found in the city for under $10.
Finch’s Tea and Coffee House
Kicking off this list is Finch’s Tea and Coffee House, offering a menu of simple yet delectable sandwiches. Situated in the heart of Gastown, this quaint, European-style café is known for their gourmet sandwiches and is often packed throughout the day, with a line out the door at lunch. Their most popular menu item is the Pear and Blue Brie baguette, though you really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose!

Build-your-own-sandwiches lovers will swoon over Hubbub.
