Yelper Alex M., who reviewed Cafe Marea on Feb. 3, wrote, "The combo of meats in the Italian were really good. The veggie panini was pleasantly surprising — it tasted clean and fresh but had a nice combo of different flavors from the pesto and sun dried tomato and marinated mushrooms. "

Simon C. noted, "Hands down best sandwiches in the area. Walked in on a whim and the owner personally welcomed us and explained the menu. I had the chipotle chicken panini and baja roast beef sandwich and they were both amazing! Very reasonably priced too. A must try spot."

Yelper Kim P., who reviewed SuperNatural Sandwiches on Jan. 30, wrote, "Such a great spot! The sandwiches were hot and gooey and totally hit the spot. We ordered the Aphrodite and Chimera and both were delicious. The flavors meld together so well and the rolls were perfectly toasted."

Kevin R. noted, "The Chimera was so tasty. Definitely one to try for a first time visit if you're not entirely up for a seafood-only sandwich. The Griffin was good, but doesn't have a lot of lobster, as you would expect from most lobster-type rolls/sandwiches. Overall 5/5 — cool décor, fun seafood sandwich menu and tasty food."

SuperNatural Sandwiches is open from 11 a.m.–8 p.m. daily.
