Top 10 Spots To Grab A Sarmie In Joburg

I went in search of some great places to grab a sarmie to start off your day or as a lunchtime treat.


Sandwich Baron

At Sandwich Baron, there’s a huge selection of sarmies to choose from that will satisfy every craving or taste. I never thought that there were so many different fillings you could put on a sandwich until I checked out their massive menu! From steak and meatballs to chicken livers and biltong, they have it all! I think the beef, chilli and potato salad sarmie is definitely worth a try! And best of all, they do online ordering and deliver right to your office!

Super Sconto

Super Sconto is an authentic Italian deli and supermarket in Orange Grove. Head straight for the counter where you can create your own sandwich … pick from a wide range of cured meats and different cheeses  as well as plenty of other fillings like artichokes, sundried tomatoes, olives and many more other delicious items, which go oh-so-well with their crusty ciabatta. Lunch time – sorted!

Whenever I am looking for something delicious and sure to leave me feeling stuffed to the gills, I simply cannot resist Subway and their addictive sub sarmies. You get to choose what type of bread you would like, the size of the sub and what fillings you want. My all time favourite is the Spicy Beef Marinade sub … I just can’t get enough of it.

Vovo Telo

Vovo Telo has a great selection of sarmies for you to choose from whether you are in a rush or want to sit back and relax. Their bread is freshly baked daily, from ciabattas and sourdough to coconut loaf and rye. Try out some of their classic panini sarmies or one of their gourmet options, like the Portabello Mushroom Panini, served with caramalised onions, roasted peppers, mature Boerenkaas and rocket!

Fournos Bakery

Whether you are just a bit peckish or ravenous, pick from Fournos Bakery’s selection of toasted sarmie treats available as a single or double (as in two sandwiches). And you can choose the bread you want the yummy filling stuffed into, from croissant, rye, French loaf, whole wheat, Italian olive loaf, Low GI, seed loaf, gluten-free bread or as a tramezzini! I wouldn’t mind trying the spinach, olive, feta and artichoke toastie!

Jo’Anna Melt Bar

Crystal went to suss out this spot in Melville not so long ago, and she absolutely loved it! Click here and check out what she had to say. Jo’Anna Melt Bar has a great selection of tasty cocktails to choose from, and let’s not forget, some delicious gourmet sarmies for you to sink your teeth into. I definitely want to swing by this spot to try out the Hot Rod – melted emmentaler cheese with fried potatoes and onions topped with sliced chorizo and jalapenos.

Velo Gallery Café

Dubbed as the place with the best sarmies in Braamies, Velo Gallery Café offers you a great spot to relax, take in some art and have a great cuppa to go along with a delicious sarmie. Try an option from their list of signature sarmies which all sound to die for! I can’t seem to decide which sounds better, the Curveball (meatballs, homemade Napoli sauce, mozzarella and fresh basil) or the Ambrosia (roasted peppers, homemade hummus, halloumi and grilled zucchini).

Bread Basket

You’ll never have to make your own lunch again thanks to Bread Basket! With a big selection of sarmies to choose from, you will feel spoiled for choice! Choose from croissants, boiled bagels, giant rolls and sourdough rolls and fill them up with a great selection of fillings! A boiled bagel filled with salmon and avo sounds good right about now.

L8 Panini and Cafe Bar

The perfect spot for coffee addicts and those looking for a great gourmet sarmie, sit back and relax at L8 Cafe at 44 Stanley. They have unique and delicious selection of gourmet sarmies to choose from, and they’re all named after movie/TV characters! Take their Stewie Griffin, for example (springbok carpaccio, wild rocket, caramalised onion, strawberries and toasted almonds on ciabatta) or the Tyler Durden, which is made with home-style meatballs in Napolitana sauce topped with Mozzarella Fior di Latte served on Turkish.

Tasha’s is a great little spot if you are looking for somewhere to have coffee with a friend. They don’t have a huge sarmie selection for you to choose from, but you can create your own sarmie combination from their list of fillings. The sarmie that I cannot get enough of is the Schnitzel Sarmie – two crumbed chicken schnitzels topped with tomato, avo, red onion and French dressing salsa.
