Dannyboys Sandwich Bar

Sometimes, there is nothing more comforting than a bowl of soup, a well-made sandwich and cupcakes with bulk frosting.
Eating a sandwich takes me back to my school days where my mama would pack my lunchbox every day with healthy, hearty flavours. My sandwiches were always delicious, whether filled with salami, chicken, tuna or just vegemite and cheese.
I am extremely fussy about the bread, primarily due to the delicious bread from Flour and Chocolate that I eat on a regular basis. Wonder White will not do.
The fillings must also be fresh and must contain an element of crunch, smoothness and chunky meat that isÂ constructed perfectly so that your lunch doesnâ€™t end up on your lap.
Whilst my mum does still make the best sandwiches out of anyone I know, I have found a cafÃ© that makes a very close second.
With bread baked fresh daily and steaming pots of different soups, Dannyboys is like your mama has gone on crack and is producing the sandwiches of your dreams. All day, erry day.
With 20 different sandwich flavours and 4 different soups, Dannyboys caters for every taste. Or, if youâ€™re like me, it just means you get to visit at least 20 times so as to sample every delicious sounding flavour combination.
For my first visit to Dannyboys I ordered The Greek, which was basically a lamb gyros in a roll. It had layers of succulent roast lamb and the freshest of vegetables including tomato, cucumber, red onion, feta, Greek peppers, Kalamata olives and shredded lettuce. Drizzled with a mayonnaise and herb dressing, this sandwich met all my criteria and more.
Whilst the flavour combination was a classic, it was executed well. The bulk vegetables put even Subway to shame. And although on initial examination it seemed unlikely that I would be able to eat this sandwich cleanly, I managed to put the majority of it in my mouth and not on my shirt. Gold stars for both the sandwich and me.
Another to-die-for soup was the broccoli and cheddar. Whilst it tasted predominantly of cheddar (no complaints here) the broccoli gave this soup a lovely smooth consistency that kept the spoon constantly returning.
And the cupcakes. Oh my gosh, the cupcakes.
I donâ€™t usually order cupcakes out, as theyâ€™re often quite dry with frosting there purely for decoration and not for taste.
This is not the case at Dannyboys.
With all these amazing flavours, Dannyboys is well worth a visit by all. Not only are their sandwiches and soups extremely affordable, theyâ€™re packed with wholesome and flavorsome ingredients that will create some of your happiest lunchtime memories.
