East Meets West

The Other Coast Cafe

All east-coast native biases aside, one thing cannot be denied: the folks on the other side of the country know how to make some darn fine sandwiches. And lucky for us Seattleites, The Other Coast brings this town two vibrant cafes (one in Ballard, one on Capitol Hill) where an awesome sammie is pretty much a done deal. Both venues feature genial staff, a simple yet cozy ambiance and a butcher’s case displaying a well-stocked supply of tempting cheeses and meats.

Hungry patrons choose between custom sandwiches or seven- and fourteen-inch pre-made options on baguettes, multi-grain, sourdough or rye. Cold items range from The Hammer (apple wood-smoked ham, carrot-jalapeno giardiniera, lettuce, cucumber and mayo) and The Captain (chicken, salami, Polish sausage, provolone, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, pesto, oil and vinegar) to The Other Coast (turkey, swiss, coleslaw and 1000 Island dressing). Hot sandwiches include the roasted veggie, homemade meatballs (topped with marinara and provolone) and a best-seller—the Rajun Cajun, a fiery mix of Cajun turkey, pepper jack cheese, tomato, onion and spicy salsa mayo.

So coast on down the next time you’re craving a dose of the fresh flavors that hail from the east.The Other Coast Cafe
