Sometimes, a burger or steak may be just too much. That’s when it’s time to hit the deli and get yourself a nice cold, or hot, sandwich to satisfy your hunger. In South Florida, there’s a plethora of places to choose from, but these will guarantee good food and sometimes even better scenery outside.
2001 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, FL 33137
If you’re looking for a giant sandwich or salad, this is definitely your stop. The portions are huge and the sandwiches are made and brought to your table. The deli has a journalist feel and the sandwiches even have unique names like the “Cuban photographer,” or the “Funky Veggie Publisher.” Bring the appetite, and if the weather’s good, sit out front and admire the luxury car dealer down the street.

When it comes to scenery, it’s tough to top Ocean Drive on Miami Beach. Fresh on Fifth has the location and has the food to make you smile while you soak up some rays. From smoothies to gelato to sandwiches, Fresh on Fifth has it. But, beware, it might be tough to concentrate on both your order and eating depending on the scenery walking by on Ocean Drive.
602 South Flamingo Road, Cooper City, FL
The name says it all. Classics is a classic in South Florida. If a sandwich isn’t your thing, try out an orient express salad or a chicken salad platter.

Heros, Wraps, Ciabattas, if it’s on the menu, it’s worth trying at least once. You might want to try one of the signature panini’s like the Tuscan or the Roast Beef Melt.
