Best Sandwiches to Add to Your Cafe Menu


There is something so satisfying about a great sandwich. They are versatile, there are numerous fillings to choose from and they are a lunchtime go-to.

The bread, the veggies and the protein are all balanced in one handheld package making them not just delicious food to enjoy, but also convenient if you are on the go.

As a cafe owner, adding a range of delicious sandwiches to your menu may be a great way to increase your food sales and bring in more customers. 

Below are some of the best sandwiches to add to your cafe menu.

Italian Panini

Prosciutto, fresh basil, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and a drizzle of olive oil and pesto, an Italian panini is a great sandwich option to have on your cafe menu.

These fillings would also suit a Pane Di Casa styled loaf or another crusty bread variety.

If you are not warming the sandwich or putting it in a sandwich press, adding some rocket will also complement these flavours. 

For a vegetarian option, leave the prosciutto out and call it a Caprese panini, which is just pesto, mozzarella and tomato.

New York Club

A classic and all-time favourite, you can’t go wrong with a New York club sandwich at your cafe.

Typically cut into quarters and held in place with cocktail skewers, a New York club sandwich is filled with grilled chicken, fried bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise. The bread is also generously smothered in mayonnaise. 

Another popular sandwich that uses poultry is a chicken and avocado sandwich. Perfect with swiss cheese and rocket, this is another great sandwich for your cafe.

When it comes to finding the right bread for your sandwiches, you may wish to work with your local bakery or a wholesale bakery supplier

A Meatball Sub

With a delicious tomato sauce, fresh basil, homemade meatballs and topped with parmesan cheese, a meatball sub is a mouthwatering sandwich and a great winter warmer.  

Salmon Sandwich 

With dill, lime, red onion, cream cheese and salad leaves, a salmon sandwich is a delicious and light option for your cafe menu.

Packed with Omega-3, a salmon sandwich is not just delicious, it is also a healthy option for your customers.

An Egg-cellent Sandwich 

Simple, but egg-cellent, a classic egg sandwich with crispy lettuce and mayonnaise is never out of place on a cafe menu.

A Reuben or a Cuban Sandwich

Yes, you could definitely serve both a Reuben and a Cuban sandwich at your cafe if you wanted. 

They are both absolutely delicious and classic sandwich hits.

A Cuban sandwich is typically made with ham or roast pork while a Reuben is made with pastrami. 

A Fancy Steak Sandwich 

A top-notch steak sandwich is another great sandwich to add to your cafe menu. 

Perfect to serve on focaccias, the steak sandwich can be hearty and more filling than other sandwich varieties.   

Whether you’re a cafe that specialises in sandwiches or more of a casual eatery that offers sandwiches as an option, it’s important to choose the right sandwiches for your cafe and customers.

Above were just some of the many delicious sandwich filling options you could add to your cafe menu.
