Because there is always a time and a place for a sandwich. Here’s our pick of the bunch…


Unit 119a Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London N1C 4DQ, UK

Sons + Daughters, the brainchild of James Ramsden and Sam Herlihy (the duo behind award-winning East London restaurant Pidgin) celebrates the sandwich in all its glory. The Coal Drops Yard spot is an ode to all things between two slices of bread. There are six sarnies on the menu and they’re all beasts. We particularly rate the CHICKEN S+DWICH, with Swaledale chicken, pickled cucumber, miso mayo, green sauce, soy-cured parmesan, gem lettuce and wasabi cress on white bloomer, and the PRAWN S+DWICH, with Cornish prawns, S+D mayo, prawn crackers, crispy shallots and cabbage on granary. Remember the crisp sandwiches you’d make as a kid? This is like that except way more mindblowing. Yes the sandwiches here are more expensive than Pret but they still all come in at less than a tenner and when you see the amount that’s stuffed in there, you’ll see they’re worth every penny. If sandwiches are what get you out of bed in the morning, then go venture in this playground, it’s like being given a AAA pass at Glasto. Rock on.

Dom’s Subs may be relatively new to London’s sandwich game having only opened on Hackney Road in 2020 but they made a big impact with their house-baked semolina sub rolls stuffed with epic fillings. The OG site runs collections and deliveries but if you want to get in-store, the Bevis Marks shop (which used to be a Subway, so it’s got the perfect set-up) is the place to go to get your hands on the likes of the Doms Club (with roast turkey, ham, bacon, Swiss cheese & guac), This Spicy D (with schiacciata piccante, salami, ham, nduja mayo & chilli oil) and The Roman (tenderstem broccoli, roast aubergine, marinated artichokes, provolone & romesco).

Sam Sandwiches is a proper hidden gem inside Shepherd’s Bush Market and these guys are slinging some of the best sarnies around with a menu inspired by Algerian street food flavours. Meat comes in the form of marinated chicken, lamb’s liver, merguez or a fish fillet before being topped off with a fried egg and chips. And these hefty sarnies are also slathered with plenty of harissa and mayo too, just how we like ’em.

Marylebone’s uber-trendy Monocle Café may be small but it’s serving up some mighty sandos, from the katsu chicken, shrimp and pork ones to the classic egg salad slapped between soft Japanese bread. And what makes these better than rest is that they’re served with a side of salt and vinegar crisps (as all good sandwiches should be).


19 Crouch Hill, London N4 4AP, United Kingdom

Max’s Sandwich Shop, the late night sarnie shop you can get pissed in, might not serve up the cheapest sandwiches in London, but for the comedy value and the fact you probably won’t be able to move after noshing down it’s so worth the £7. Expect quirky names and filthy creations. You can’t go wrong with the classic ham, egg ‘n’ chips but we also love The Original Gangster, a braised beef, sauerkraut and “incredibly slutty gravy mayo” creation and don’t miss the crispy potatoes coated in crack-like rose harissa yoghurt either.

Who’d of thought one of our favourite sandwiches would be served in an atmospheric wine bar on Hackney Road. Oh yes at Sager & Wilde you’ll find two epic toasties, one with cheddar and mostarda and another with cheddar and pepper & chilli jam. Question is, which one will you choose?


30 Uxbridge St, Kensington, London W8 7TA, United Kingdom
