That's an oversight, TC. Apologies to you and Brass Bear. I just added it to the poll. What's your go-to sandwich there? -- Lance Howland, editor, Walnut Creek Patch

Julie: Did they time their opening to the Patch Best of Sandwich Shops contest? Just kidding. Can't find them on the Internet under that name. Plan to head over later and snap a picture. Maybe even wolf down a sandwich. -- Lance Howland, editor, Walnut Creek Patch

Hi All - Great poll for a city with too many great restaurants. I would personally include Cheesesteak and A Sweet Affair. Both are amazing as are many listed above. Have a great week all....

The one thing I miss most now that I work in San Francisco is lunches from Morucci's!

How about sweet affair?

My son and I will be stopping by for a slice this afternoon. Welcome to the neighborhood PanCoast!

Lance,..My "Go-To" sandwich at Brass Bear is hot pastrami and sharp cheddar on a dutch crunch roll. A close second is "The Arianna". You'll just have to stop by and try 'em!!! Super good sandwiches and very friendly staff

TC: OK, how come I — a Dutch-American — don't know what a "Dutch Crunch Roll" is. What makes it crunchy? And do I have to wear wooden shoes while eating it?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiger_bread "The bread is generally made with sesame oil and with a pattern baked into the top made by painting rice paste onto the surface prior to baking.[1] The paste dries and cracks during the baking process. The rice paste crust also gives the bread a distinctive flavour. It has a crusty exterior, but is soft inside. Typically, tiger bread is made as a white bread bloomer loaf or bread roll, but the technique can be applied to any shape of bread." Oh wikipedia, where would we be without you?

Do they still offer a free cookie if you pre-order on the phone? Sure miss them downtown WC!

Kristina, Welcome to Patch. Thank you for your leadership on the late-night stuff... Whatever the DBA has in mind for a "brand" -- ours will continue to be "family-friendly."
