Compagno's Market and Deli is up Prescott Avenue, high, high up at the top of the hill about 1 mile above Cannery Row. It also happens to be immediately outside of the Presidio's Taylor Street Gate, making it very convenient for the DLI students to walk for a quick lunch. Soon after I arrived in Monterey, I ran into a DLI student and he told me about Compagno's...it came highly recommended!

I finally got to try a Compagno's sandwich and it was impressive. I was at a casual evening reception with about 100 others, and the host served sandwiches from Compagno's. They were gigantic!! They came on boards that were 10-12 feet long and 6 inches wide. The sandwiches themselves were about 6 inches tall and stuffed with meat, cheese, and veggies. Amazing!

I have no idea how much you pay for a sandwich like this, but it was excellent!

According to the Monterey Herald, Compagno's has the best sandwiches in the county!
