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 Burlington

When it comes to great sandwiches, Burlington has got you covered. Some places you don’t want to miss? The long-running, independent cafe Lakeshore Coffee House, the tiny vegan and gluten-free hotspot that’s aptly named Lettuce Love Cafe, the beloved bagel mecca that is JC’s Hot Bagels (hurry if you can, as it’s always selling out fast), the fun, laidback and elaborately decorated The Coop Wicked Chicken and our number one pick, Toronto export Barque. While Barque is our number one, Burlington has a lot to offer sandwich lovers.
