Before bread, sandwiches were haphazardly supported by two hands high-fiving. Celebrate portable eats with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of gourmet sandwiches, salads, and soups at Cafe Martha in Scottsdale.
Cafe Martha's sandwichsmiths craft a menu of deli classics at once fresh and familiar. Capicola, salami, and pepperoni fortify the Old Italian ($7.95 whole; $4.25 half) with pesto mayo and creole dressing, a combo that recently unseated “bacon” and “additional sandwiches” in a tag team condiment contest. The vegetarian ($7.95 whole; $4.25 half) hugs veggies in ciabatta and olive oil, and the cafe Heidi ($7.95 whole; $4.25 half) piles roast beef and fiery chipotle onions alongside a pool of remoulade sauce. The leafy Lagnaippe salad ($7.25 whole; $4 half) houses bits of bacon and andouille sausage, which pairs nicely with the café’s spicy chicken and andouille gumbo or with one of a fleet of soups du jour ($3–$4.75). Cafe Martha's handwritten chalkboards greet customers with enticing stock advice and daily menu options, which can be eaten in the warm, natural light that streams through a large anterior window.
