5 places to grab a great sandwich in Greater Palm Springs

You love yourself a good sandwich (heck, who doesn’t?). Luckily for you, the Coachella Valley has plenty of  places serving up delicious sandwiches.

Here are five of them, in no particular order:

TKB Bakery and Deli


TKB (or “The Kid’s Business”) is so damn good, Yelp named it the 4th best restaurant in the nation. IN THE NATION!  The Indio hotspot is well known for their menu which features incredible, piled-high sandwiches plus a bunch of tasty bakery treats.

TKB Bakery & Deli is located at 44911 Golf Center Parkway in Indio.

Real Italian Deli

The Parma - Real Italian Deli Palm Desert

The Real Italian Deli serves up incredible sandwiches at their two Coachella Valley locations. You can create your own or order one of their specials including “The Caprese” (Fresh Mozarella, Baby Greens, Tomatoes), “The Toscano” (Toscano Salami, Olive Tapenade, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Provolone), and “The Parma” (Prosciutto di Parma, Fresh Mozarella, Lettuce, Tomatoes).

Real Italian Deli is at 44795 San Pablo Avenue in Palm Desert and 100 South Sunrise Way, Palm Springs.

Bristol Farms

Bristol Farms sandwich

If you think a grocery store can’t make an amazing sandwich – you have never been to Bristol Farms.  You won’t find processed turkey at their deli, oh no…they carve that meat right off of a newly roasted bird!  In addition to the best turkey sandwich in the Desert, they also offer up a variety of other sandwiches including brisket, pulled pork, smoked chicken, and a really good banh mi.

Bristol Farms is at 73101 Country Club Drive in Palm Desert

The Sandwich Spot

Sandwich Spot Palm Springs

The Sandwich spot is partly hidden in back of  The Hair of The Dog bar (do not be scared off by the smell of stale beer and urine), but once you find it – you will be going back again and again.  The menu at The Sandwich spot has a bit of everything including “The Chairman of the Board” (ham, salami, prosciutto, provolone, and Italian dressing), “But It’s a Dry Heat” (Chicken, Hot Sauce, Bomb Sauce, and Pepper Jack), and “The Sunny and Share” (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato, and Avocado).  Pro Tip: get the Dutch Crunch bread.

The Sandwich Spot is at 240 N. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs

Native Foods Café

Native Foods Sandwich

Hey, not all good sandwiches have to be made with meat.  Native Foods in Palm Springs does some truly incredible things with tempeh, seitan, tofu, and more.  Feast on a bacon cheeseburger, bacon ranch chicken burger, or a reuben from Native Foods and you just might be tempted to go meatless (at least from time to time).

Native Foods Cafe is at 1175 E. Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs
