Whether you are looking for a delicious lunch spot, a quick snack, or just good ole’ fashioned comfort food, sandwiches are always a great option. Here are seven Hawaii shops that have perfected the art form that is sandwich making.
1) 808 Deli, Maui
Local and fresh sandwiches with some creative pairings, this shop was voted the “Best Sandwiches in Maui” by Maui Time Weekly four years in a row.
2) Honolulu Burger Co., Oahu
Though this joint is known for their burgers, the Philly Dip sandwich – half Philly cheese-steak, half French dip with au jus – is a must-try.
3) The Coffee Shack, Big Island
Located in Captain Cook, this popular sandwich shop features homemade bread, delicious food, and a stellar view. Oh, and did we mention that they put out jelly for the local geckos to eat? That’s pretty cool, too.
4) Andy's Sandwiches & Smoothies, Oahu
With reasonable prices and an extensive selection of traditional, creative concoctions, and hot sandwiches, this healthy joint is a great place to stop for a quick meal.
5) The Hanalei Gourmet, Kauai
This truly Hawaiian-style deli located on Kauai’s North Shore is known for their house-made dressings, fresh bread, and low-sodium meats.
6) Woodshop Gallery Cafe, Big Island
Near Akaka Falls, this Honomu Village favorite doesn’t look like much, but features scrumptious wraps and sandwiches. The mango chicken sandwich is described as divine.
7) Kua Aina Sandwiches, Oahu
With roots on Oahu’s North Shore, this modest family shop now has three locations on the island, and has been a favorite for surfers, locals and tourists alike for 40 years.
