A Sandwich a Day

A different sandwich profiled every single day.

In this great country of ours, one could eat a different sandwich every day of the year—so that's what we'll do. Here's A Sandwich a Day, our daily look at sandwiches around the country. Got a sandwich we should check out? ">Let us know.—The Mgmt.

Lovejoy Bakers is one of those places where you can't go wrong with anything you order. From the early morning breakfast sandwiches to their wonderful soups, salads and sandwiches for lunch...to the afternoon cookies and pie. They serve Stumptown coffee and a very tasty Bloody Mary, not to mention one of the best brioches in town. This place is a treasure in the Pearl neighborhood of Portland.

Though the roast beef with caramelized onions and cheddar is damn good, their turkey sandwich has to be my favorite. Roast turkey with avocado, bacon, mascarpone and housemade cranberry chutney is a winning combination of tart and sweet, crunchy and chewy. It comes on their housemade sourdough levain bread. It's one of those sandwiches that calls to you as soon as you walk in.
