Oakland sandwich shops to visit

Being on the go often means bringing food to go. Still, grabbing a quick bite doesn’t have to mean giving up quality. Oh, the endless dreamy concoctions that can make their way in between two slices of bread; where once simply stood PB&J during your childhood has artisanally evolved into so much more. These days, even grilled cheese can ooze with fancy flair.

Hot, cold, meat-filled or vegan, tasty (and often times towering) sandwiches will stir up envy from those weighed down by utensils when they see you bringing back a sammie on BART. Don’t underestimate the grandeur of the sack lunch at the following BARTable Oakland sandwich slingers assembling classic and inventive combos.
