    Hungry? Duck in out of the rain at Meat & Bread in Gastown for lunch. Hearty sandwiches, fresh soups, salads made daily. Sambal and mustard in jars to go. Gluten-free offered. Check Twitter for menu. Read more

    The meatball sandwich was great. Not too spicy, awesome bread, not drowning in sauce. Good alternative to the porchetta.

    The grilled cheese is amazing. The salad is amazing. A little tough getting past all the meat in the place as a vegetarian, but good enough to turn a blind eye.

    The meatball sandwich is big and spicy. More of a meal than the porchetta.

    Not much else to say, the sandwiches are amazing but it gets busy fast. The hot sauce they serve with the grilled cheese is amazing and goes well with the porchetta sandwich (ask for it)

    Order their insanely good Porchetta sandwich. Juicy tender pork and crunchy skin spangled with house-made salsa verde and stuffed into a fresh-baked ciabatta roll. [Eater 38 Member]

    Get there 15 minutes before the lunch rush cause the line will be a line out the door. They sell their home made mustards and spreads. You won’t beat their Sandwiches, but it’s a good start.

    As a huge fan of San Francisco Ferry Building institution Roli Roti, Meat and Bread wears their porcetta sando very well. Wash it down with a Stumptown Cold Brew ice coffee

    A simple and unassuming sandwich place, done up in typical Gastown hipster fashion. The porchetta sandwich is the thing to get. In fact, get two. Maybe three.

    Porchetta and Brisket sandwiches are delicious, but pretty much the only items on the menu. Bring cash, water and napkins at the back. The mustard? Flawless and for sale too.

    Meatball is spicy delicious but tricky to eat...I like eating it as 2 open face sandwiches - and throw a lil in your soup for good measure! Enjoy!
