Spots for a delicious sarmie in Pretoria

The food in Pretoria is amazing. But, just because we have a seemingly endless supply of four-star restaurants to choose from, doesn’t mean we always want a fancy meal. Sometimes all we crave is a good old’ fashioned sandwich… After all, the chefs of this city are doing wonderful things with the filling delights these days.
Here’s a guide to five fantastic spots with sarmies worth seeking out.


These guys are in the business of baking heavenly loaves of bread so it’s only natural that they’d master the sandwich game as well. Here you get a choice of either Mozzarella or Cheddar, and all their sarmies come with delicious chunky, crispy hand cut potato chips. Fournos was voted  the best bakery in the city.

What are you waiting for? Order something…


The Sandwich Baron

Everything that comes out of The Sandwich Baron is garnished with a dash of perfection and the same goes for all their sarmies. Add to this – that they offer an extremely popular, free delivery service of freshly made-to-order delights, and you have what makes for a unrivaled spot. The Sandwich Baron currently has over 50 stores scattered across the country. Some of their sarmies are made with cheddar and have an excellent rationing of cheese so it isn’t too greasy. To find a branch go to the Sandwich Baron store locator.


Pizza Del Forno

This spot is known for its pizzas but don’t let that fool you. They give life to the saying go big or go home; with an ample amount of cheddar cheese melted between two large rectangular slices of brown bread. Pizza Del Forno offers traditional Italian flare, ranging from pizzas, pastas and salads, to grills, sandwiches and coffees. They boast an addictive offering of sandwich delights at a reasonable price of course.
