My Guilty Pleasure
I hope all the vegans out there don't hate me, but I love the veal sandwiches at California Sandwiches.

OMG - there is nothing as good as their veal sandwiches. Well... almost nothing.

These things are colossal. The sandwich consists of a huge piece of veal. If they can't find you a big piece, they combine two regular pieces for you. You definitely need two hands and a lot of napkins to finish one of these.

I like the original Claremont location, because it definitely has its own unique charm. However, the location at Dufferin and Eglinton makes the most tender veal sandwiches. It's like you're eating cake.

Over the years, it seems like the price keeps inching upwards. I think a sweet veal with cheese can cost you around $8 or $9 after taxes.

Who cares!

Best Veal Sandwich in Toronto
There are no equivalents. The Claremont location serves the juiciest, tastiest, biggest and freshest sandwiches in the city. I've tried to find something that can come even a little bit close. Fuggetaboudit. And the girls that prepare and serve... give the highest level of service and respect. If they don't know you initially, they will after your first visit. They treat you like family. Have the veal with cheese and mushrooms... their sauce is so good. Peppers too medium or mild. So good my mouth is salivating while I write this.

I used to go to the one at 2700 dufferin..I worked a few doors down.. the sandwiches are the size of a small planet! I have never been able to eat a whole one. :)

Additional business details

The first California Sandwiches is the Claremont location, still hidden in Toronto's little Italy region. In the late 1960's it was a grocery store that was purchased by the Papa/Bertucci family. They quickly discovered they had something special, as customers were coming for lunch instead of the groceries. They decided to capitalize on this opportunity as their hot Italian sandwiches were selling out daily. Thus the first California Sandwiches was born. From its inception in "La Rinacente" (the stores first name), the veal sandwich has become one of Toronto's favorite meals. Today, very little has changed. There are now 8 locations all family owned and operated. Traditional methods of food preperation are still in practise. Each store has its own butcher and the meat is cut on site. Only the finest in Italian tomatos are ground for the sauce that is made fresh daily. The kaiser buns are baked every morning and are delivered by an Italian bakery. Cheeses and produce are bought and prepared for use as needed. Quality food and attention to detail have kept this business strong and valued. California Sandwiches is Toronto's favorite hot Italian sandwich. You can taste the difference!
