Toronto’s Best Sandwiches: Delica Kitchen’s take on the ham and Swiss

Delica Kitchen has been tempting the uptown lunch crowd for over three years now. Sitting pretty near Yonge and St. Clair, this shrine to wholesome eats is Devin Connell’s first solo foray into the food biz. Inside, rows of freshly made sandwiches and daily soups are perfect for grabbing and going.

We fell for the Parisienne ($8.85). Stacking layers of The Butcher Shoppe’s smoked ham, along with thin slices of gruyère and slivers of Bartlett pear, the sandwich is finished with a smear of Dijon mustard and a touch of garlic aïoli. Everything is tucked into Ace Bakery’s white flute bread — which is made specifically for Delica Kitchen.

For those who need to end on a sweet note, dessert options include regular and wheat-free donuts from Paulette’s, the Leslieville eatery devoted to slightly more devilish fare. The spiced maple walnut ($2.75) is our favourite.

Delica Kitchen, 1440 Yonge St., 416-546-5408
