They make a mean pastrami sandwich!  We decided to stay in HMB for the long weekend and have been struggling to find really good food here and was pleasantly surprised with San Benito.  This little deli makes amazing bread and, when the bread is good, and everything else is high quality, you have the ingredients to make a delicious sandwich.  We loved our meal and will  definitely come back here again!

Below average sandwich. Light on everything. Wished it had both more meat and more avocado. They also gave us the completely wrong order and didn't even apologize, but they did remake what we ordered. I don't recommend the olive walnut bread - it seemed almost like it wasn't cooked all the way. I would skip and find another sandwich for your beach day.

Hi Julia, I'm sorry about your experience. Our sandwiches are not known to be light on everything so that's surprising to hear. As for the olive walnut bread, it's supposed to have a light, fluffy, and moist consistency. I'd love to have you back to try something else and hopefully cause a better impression. Chris, owner.

After a fire at the San Benito House, the Deli is operating temporarily out of Pizza Pie (225 Cabrillo Hwy S, Unit 106C). I like the olive walnut bread for sandwiches and the Portuguese loaf for take-out but sadly neither was available when we came by for a late lunch (3pm) on a recent Friday. The sandwiches are good sized with generous portions of ingredients. The turkey is the regular packaged sandwich meat and not roasted & carved. The roast beef is sliced thicker and I liked it better. I wish they had spicy mustard. They offered us free lemonade which was slightly tart and not sweet. In this temporary location, they a smaller selection of chips and cookies (the display in the original location is huge) but they are still tempting. The deli isn't fancy but you should support it because the people are nice, the prices are fair and... well, the fire.

Jonathan, it's good to know you enjoy the sandwiches. I apologize for being out of the bread the day you came in. We ran out of those loaves quicker since we are having a shortage of room at our temporary location, Pizza Pie. We are doing the best we can with the room we have available. Thanks so much for supporting us as we are in the process of rebuilding after the fire. I'd love to see you back soon for another bite to eat. Chris, owner.
