To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti such as "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of sandwiches, salads, and more at Something Else Deli & Latte Express in East Central. This deal is not valid toward online ordering. It is good for dine-in or carryout.
Family owned for 30 years, Something Else Deli was rated the #1 sandwich shop in Spokane in 2009 and 2010 by KREM TV and CityVoter. Classic bookended-by-bread concoctions populate the menu, destroying unsettling stomach hungers and distracting disorderly ducks. Delve into familiar members of the sandwich family, such as the pastrami on german rye ($6.54 regular), tuna on wheat ($3.99 regular), or french dip on a toasty Francophone roll ($4.99 regular).
Marathon weightlifters vie for the green medal with Something Else's slew of bowl-based veggie medleys, including the chef salad, bedecked with turkey, ham, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, and choice of dressing ($5.74). Freshly made side salads come in fork-fancying varieties such as pepper pasta salad, macaroni salad, chicken vinaigrette, and artichoke pasta ($1.99 cup, $3.84 pint).
Something Else's arsenal of fresh-baked muffins and cookies pump sugary life force into sweet teeth ($1.10–$1.65), and Latte Express provides caffeinated eye-openers such as espresso drinks, coffee to go ($1.20 large), and complimentary cymbal crashes.
Something Else Deli & Latte Express
Creating your own sandwich at Something Else Deli & Latte Express can be an exercise in restraint, once you take into account all the meats, cheeses, veggies, and spreads you can add to your creation. Start with bread—bagel, croissant, focaccia, or roll—then layer any combination of fixings, such as pepper jack and pastrami or egg salad and pickles. If you'd rather someone else make the decisions, a list of pre-designed hot and cold sandwiches is also available for perusal. Beyond these handhelds, guests can dig into soups, salads, and drinks from the espresso bar.
