San Francisco is home to some of the best sandwiches in the world. That assertion shouldn’t surprise you: We’re ground zero for amazing bread. We’ve got a remarkable bounty of locally-cultivated produce, dairy, meat, and condiments. And our chefs are ballers, creative, playful perfectionists unafraid of genre mixing, challenging combinations, and envelopes pushed beyond all reason. There is genius to be found on every corner, and a delight to be found in every shop with a “sandwiches sold here” sign in the window.

We’ve made our peace with this — and hope you can too, and will think of these 18 fantastic San Francisco sandwich spots as a starting-off point for an adventure in sandwich exploration.
