  • sandwiches may be my favorite food – i love anything that involves bread and is portable. i’m a mendocino freak! usually i have to wait to go when i visit my relatives in marina del rey so i’m ultra excited they’re opening in my ‘hood.

  • I love sandwiches because they taste awesome and vegan ones are the most awesome and you don’t have to worry about cleaning dishes after!

  • Sandwiches, yum! While my love for the delicacies have left me speechless, you just have to take my word on it, swear! Although I am not vegan, I do eat lower on the food chain and I have been looking forward to this option opening stumbling distance from my own front door.

  • You can hold it in your hands and stick anything in between it. Honestly, what’s not to love? – My ode to Sandwiches.

  • I love sandwiches because they are:

    S = Satisfying
    A = (totally) Awesome
    N = Necessary (i.e. food, shelter, water)
    D = D.Licious, D.Vine, D.Lectible
    W = Welcome (on my plate at any meal on any day)
    I = (can be) Intense
    C = Chewy, Crunchy, Crispy
    H = Hiccup! (I ate it too fast)
    E = Extra-transportable
    S = Slurp! (gone)

  • You can eat them so many different ways!!!

  • I love Mendocino Farms sandwiches and side salads. It’s great that they have so many vegan options. Sooo glad I won’t have to drive all the way downtown for their awesome food!

  • I love sandwiches. Love them! If I could, I would marry sandwiches and have their delicious sandwich babies.

    Alas, I have never had the opportunity to partake of the Mendocino Farms sandwiches, which makes me a very sad panda. So please pick me so I can revel in the perfect sandwich love affair!

  • I am unavailable Tuesday, sadly, but I wanted to chime in to support Carol Elaine, whom I don’t know, and to assure that she should get 1 of the 5 spots on the strength of the phrase “delicious sandwich babies” alone.

  • Excuse the double post…tried to catch the first to edit “assure” to “assert,” but it was too late. Darn iPad touchscreen! Make the winners all submit reviews.

  • I love sandwiches because they satisfy that craving I have for something quick and easy while simultaneously being amazingly flavorful and comforting. This is a great new option for us Weho residents for quick vegan fare. I always drag my boyfriend to Veggie Grill and MCafe so he will be happy to have more options now! 🙂

  • I can’t get enough of the natural soda fountain and superb vegan sandwiches!

  • Being vegan in Venice and working in the Marina, I love Mendocino Farms!
    Often, I work most of the day, forgetting to eat. And alas! I can just walk across the street and eat something yummy & vegan, without having to think about it or ask tons of questions. When the blood sugar is low, fast and worry-free WORKS! :-))))

  • As a new vegan, and a sandwich lover, I’ve been exploring all over LA for the best vegan sandwiches. The Reuben and the meatball sub at Native Foods top the list so far. I’ve never been to Mendocino Farms, so of course I would love the opportunity to try the sandwiches you rave about. I follow you to find good vegan places I may not hear about otherwise so, thanks!!

  • I love sandwiches because you they are portable and you can make them an entire meal. I tried to go to Mendocino Farms downtown, made a special plan and everything. However, they were closed! 🙁 So alas I have still never tried a Mendocino Farms sandwich and would love to taste them!

  • I adore sandwiches because I love all the textures and flavors combining, there’s nothing better! YYUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMMMMMMMM………

  • I love sandwiches because there are endless amounts of choices! It’s so easy to make an absolutely delicious vegan meal that will impress your friends just by making a sandwich!

  • I love sandwiches because i’m a poor vegan who will eat anything vegan, especially delicious sandwiches.

  • Sandwiches are amazing because 1.) they are (usually) made with bread, the most delicious of carbs, and 2.) portability (need I say more)

  • Secretragingcow

    A good sandwich is like a good woman, delicious, easy to make, satisfying

  • i love the way a sandwich feels in my hand, in my mouth and in my tummy.

  • No words can describe these sandwiches, they are beyond words. Now they are so close and I can eat them all the time….life is good!!!!!

  • Holler to the downtown Mendocino! Their vegan sammiches are awesome & I love getting comfy full but not feeling like garbage on my way back to work.

  • hello. I would love to go to this event tomorrow. I do love sandwiches, especially the ones without chopped up animals in them. A tempeh sandwich is right up my alley, especially with some Veginaise oh Yeah. I have been curious to try this place out, especially since you rave about how good they are. Thank U

  • I love sandwiches because they are super portable and avocado can be easily incorporated into nearly any sandwich combination. Except maybe peanut butter and jelly.

    Anyhoot. I am excited for Mendocino’s new store, and would love to go to their opening with my vegan love!

  • Thank you, LobowolfXXX!

    You know what delicious sandwich babies are, don’t you? Sliders!

  • Sandwiches are great because you can carry around everything you need WHEREVER YOU GO!

    Plate? No thanks, I’ve got a sandwich.

    Need a fork? No way dude…sandwich.

    Straw? You kidding?

    You can put everything you need to survive inside some bread and call it a day.

    I am also a fan of wraps.

  • I love sandwiches because they’re portable!! Since I’m always on the run, sandwich food is as good as it gets.

  • Nothing is better than sex!!! Well…except a sandwich of course.

  • I love sandwiches because you can dress them up in so many different ways. Also, they are super easy to eat in bed.

  • It’s rare that anyone can go through life with out their heart being broken by their first love. Not the case with me. Sandwiches have NEVER broken my heart. My first and only true, pure love 🙂 OH- but I also love ANIMALS too darn it!

  • I love sandwiches because they are so versatile and so easy to take anywhere. There are so many different ways to be creative with sandwiches.

  • Carbs and veggies! I love me some sandwiches.

  • Get thee to Locali!!!

  • Sand for the beach and wiches for Halloween. With a name like that to describe tasty food…golden. + I can walk to the new Mendocino Farms!

  • When I was a little girl I had a crush on PB and J as I grew my tastes have matured, however I still love me some sammies!

  • Ok so here’s a haiku expressing my love for sandwiches:

    Sandwiches are good
    They satisfy the hunger
    Vegan is the best!!!

    You know what I’m going to go for a second haiku:

    I love sandwiches
    Delicious bread, veggies, sauce
    Straight into belly.


  • me and my wife love sandwiches, sad thing is we have never had mendocino farms. tomorrow is our two year anniversary and this would be a great way to introduce ourselves to mendocino farms and celebrate our wedding anniversary.

  • Sandwiches = the messier, the better

    ’nuff said.

    p.s The vegan black bean/soyrizo wrap at Mendo Farms is the best thing on the menu.

  • I simply LOVE sandwiches. Why? You can eat them with your hands. You can eat them hot or cold. You can make them complex or simple. You can put almost anything in-between two slices of bread and go! Yup, sandwiches are the best!

  • Sandwiches may just be the perfect food. Can’t wait to try Mendicino Farms when they open up.

  • Sandwiches have the most favorable ratio of “time spent assembling” to “deliciousness”, thereby making them the best food ever!

  • Sandwiches are amazing because they have such a mixture of different things and can be prepared multiple ways and are all held together by delicious warm bread.

  • I’d love to go! The tempe sandwich sounds yummy!

  • I love sandwiches because they’re a perfect grab and go food when i’m in a rush…plus what isn’t good between 2 pieces of bread? 🙂
