1. DannyBoys Stores

DannyBoys is a food store and catering company that makes the sort of sandwiches you wish you had in your lunchbox every single day. All of their bread is made and baked in-store throughout the day and the fillings are seriously good.

They do healthy wraps and sandwiches but it’s the flatgrills you’ll be tempted most by. Slow Cooked Organic Beef Brisket and Double Monterey Jack Cheese? You can’t say no.

2. Melt Brothers

Using only the freshest ingredients, Melt Brothers offers a variety of mouth-watering cheesy melts all served on a fresh artisan sourdoughs, including gluten free and vegan options.

Whether you want a cheesy, garlicky, bacony pile up or a Vegemite toastie, all your grilled cheese dreams will come true here.

3. The Cheese Pleaser

You won’t be able to get enough of the sandwiches in here; particularly the French sandwich with saucisson, guyere and cornichons that tastes like Paris in a roll.

Just the type of tastiness you would expect from this artisanal cheese shop tucked away in Brisbane’s CBD. The sandwich shop is the extension of The Cheese Pleaser, a family-run catering and cheese business.

4. Chu The Phat

Caveat: these are not technically sandwiches but we’re saying for arguments sake that they are. Dough wrapped around a filling? It’s a sandwich, okay.

Chu the Phat draws on flavours from the hawker stalls of Hong Kong, Korea and Taiwan for its street food menu and these steamed duck buns are as good – if not better – than any you’ll find in Asia.

5. The Paddo

Steak sandwich fans will be in heaven here. One bite of their steak sarnie with rib fillet, cos lettuce, sliced tomato, beetroot, grilled onion, melted cheese and bbq sauce on toasted thick cut bread will make you a lifetime fan.

6. Project 41

This Bowen Hills favourite is beloved far and wide for its droolworthy jaffles: there’s a truffled mac n’ cheese, Chipotle pulled pork or classic Reuben. If toasties aren’t your thing (and honestly, they really, really should be) then you can opt for a classic sanga.

Project 41’s selection include a 14-hour smoked BBQ beef brisket sub or pastrami on rye. Easily some of the tastiest sandwiches in Brisbane.

7. 5 Boroughs

As the name suggests, 5 Boroughs takes its menu inspiration from streets of New York City, serving up amazing American-style bites to eat. There’s a traditional Reuben on rye, a tasty grilled chicken BLT or – the ultimate choice in our opinion – the French dip.

It’s a hearty feed of beef brisket, US cheddar, and crispy onions on baguette, served with beef gravy dipping sauce.
