Bruno’s Market and Deli

Back when Girlfriend and I started dating, our first trip together was a road trip from LA up to Carmel.  Girlfriend’s car was in the shop so she had a rental car for the weekend.  We decided last minute to drive up to Carmel and spend the weekend, then take the scenic Hwy 1 back down to LA.  We decided to pick up some sandwiches for the ride back so that we wouldn’t have to hunt down lunch on the overpriced and sparsely populated stretch of road before us.  So we stumbled in to this market and deli right down the road from the hotel we were staying at and picked up a few sandwiches.  Those sandwiches turned out to be some of the best sandwiches we had ever tried.

Fast forward to the near present, and a few weekends ago, Girlfriend and I headed back down to Carmel since I actually had an entire weekend off.  We both had fond memories of this surprise find and so we ended up getting lunch there… twice!


To order your sandwich you fill out a little order form that is on the counter.  When Girlfriend and I went during lunch on Saturday, the deli counter was packed with customers.  When we went a little earlier on Sunday, it wasn’t as bad.  You pick your bread, your meat, your cheese, and whatever vegetables you want.  I typically pick every vegetable they offer and a lot of times you end up with a salad sandwich with some meat topping.  With the Bruno’s sandwiches, you get a lot of meat and the veggies balance out the sandwich very well.  A great deal for around $6.  If you ever end up in Carmel around lunch time, this is a must try.
