Have you been in the mood for an exceptional sandwich and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get it?

Have you been in the mood for an exceptional sandwich and haven’t been quite sure where to go to get it?

Since there is no shortage of selection in the GTA, the choice as to where to dine can be a tough one–especially when places that serve delicious sandwiches are plentiful across cities.

When it comes to a great sandwich, every ingredient counts. Is the bread soft with a delightfully flaky crust? Is the filling satisfying and flavourful? Are the spreads or sauces on point?

Both Mississauga and Brampton are known for their respective food scenes and both offer a ton of commendable sandwich joints–but only one city can have the absolute best hotspots.

What places were competing?


Top 5 Sandwiches in Mississauga

When you want a sandwich, you don’t have to drive far to get one in Mississauga. Some great hotspots for a great sandwich? The hidden BBQ gem that is Holy Smokez BBQ Sandwiches, the classic, family-owned and eternally popular California Sandwiches, the homey and welcoming Pizzeria Dei Sassi in the Dixie and Eglinton area, the iconic and near-legendary Peter’s on Eglinton (you don’t want to miss the Montreal smoked meat) and our number one pick, the homegrown (and growing) On a Bun. While On a Bun hit number one on our list, Mississauga has not shortage of incredible sandwich joints.


Top 5 Sandwiches in Brampton

When you want to grab a great sandwich for lunch (or even dinner) in Brampton, there are a lot of options. Some worthwhile hotspots include the Garden Square gem known as Little Shop of Ice Cream, the cozy, long-standing and always reliably tasty That Italian Place Cafe and Eatery, the tiny Queen St. E. hotspot that is San Francisco Place, the somewhat newly opened and incredibly authentic Ital Sandwiches on Maritime Ontario Blvd., and our number one pick, the soup-and-sandwich mainstay that is The Grainery. While The Grainery is our number one pick, there are no shortage of great sandwich joints in B-town.
