Vista’s Icebox Deli’s expansive menu contains more than 30 sandwiches, each assigned to one of four taste-oriented rankings. Beneath the “really good” status, customers find classics, such as tuna on wheat and egg salad, while the next level up—“better sandwiches”—offers BLTs and shrimp pitas. The shop’s “best sandwiches” list includes a club stacked with bacon, turkey, and ham, and at the top lies Vista’s “finest sandwiches”: Reubens, heros, and BLTs dressed up with avocado and crowned in laurel leaves.
A whiteboard relays the day’s handwritten specials, beneath which reads a list of hearty sides, such as coleslaw, potato salad, and tortellini pesto. The kitchen also churns out daily-made soups, breakfast burritos, egg sandwiches, and frozen yogurt.
