Pinco Deli is the hot new spot on Glen Osmond Road serving up Italian-inspired sarnies, focaccias and top quality Willow Blend coffee. All of their offerings are beyond impressive but #4 has my heart well and truly — warm toasty focaccia, mortadella, salami, provolone, mayonnaise, tomato, pickled giardiniera and basil (plus I always add chilli paste). Droolingggggg.

Located in the heart of Prospect, Bottega Bandito is inspired (but not bound) by tradition. They offer up classics sandwiches with their own unique twist plus fresh local coffee that’ll have you coming back for more every time. Make sure to try their Sandwich of the Month every Friday — their May Meatball Sub Sando was insane and I can’t wait to try June’s special!

Dante’s is the brand new offering on Jetty Rd, serving up Italian-inspired deli sandwiches, fresh pastries and Hark coffee. Having only opened in April, Dante’s is already neighbourhood fave – and it all makes sense once you get your teeth around their sangas.

Our Boy Roy is a Clarence Park icon despite having only opened their doors in November of last year. The ultra modern space is filled with smells of the delicious menu items, including (but definitely not limited to) a Chicago-inspired beef roll, a sando overflowing with mortadella, a classic Rueben with a Roy’s Secret Sauce twist and even a meatball and sugo sub.

Onto the sandwich craze long before it was trending, Lucia’s have been serving up their classic Italian sarnies for years and are an Adelaide staple. You choose your base — panino, focaccia, croissant, bagel or roll — and then get loading with plenty of fresh meat and veggie fillings to choose from.

Ganga Gang Parkside is just around the corner from the Adelady office, making it equal parts convenient and dangerous. We all have our fave takeaway sandwich from the groovy spot from the Tokyo Drift (Katsu) Sando to The Swiss, but my go to is always the Gambino — mushies, bacon, cheddar and egg — bloody yum.

All about the art of fried chicken, Motherlode on Hindley Street, is the place to find the ultimate chicken sando. It’s hard to go past The Classic on their menu — a ciabatta roll loaded with buttermilk fried chicken nuggets, pink onions, crispy lettuce, toasted sesame and kewpie mayo — but their vego alternative, the Cauli Power, is a serious must-try as well.
