I'm often frustrated by how hard it seems to be to find a tasty, quality sandwich with good bread and fillings when I'm out and about in Vancouver. I don't want to limit the conversation but let's not include banh mi or hamburgers here as those have their own threads. Otherwise, hot or cold, chain or independent, cheap or pricey, anything goes as long as it is worth the calories. Bonus points (from my perspective, anyway) if your choice is on the west side :-).
I'll start by mentioning Coco et Olive, where they do a mean French version of panini. And you can get a great Intelligentsia coffee to go with it. Not a cheap sandwich but good value for me.
