1. Olive & Finch 1552 E 17th Ave, Denver, CO 80218

Olive & Finch is a rare bird -- an establishment devoted to using local, organic, and sustainable ingredients in order to make fast, convenient dishes for you when you're on the run. Get your hands on a pulled pork breakfast scramble or a Reuben made with house-cured pastrami without even leaving your car -- they have curbside delivery to make things as easy as possible.

2. Dolce Sicilia 3210 Wadsworth Blvd, Denver, CO 80034

This family-owned Italian bakery can be found in a tiny strip mall that shares space with a casket store. Don't let the location weird you out though, because you would be missing out on freshly baked bread and Italian pastries that are unlike anything else you'll find in Denver. Fresh cream puffs, lasagna, and espresso drinks are just a few delicious things on the menu, but the sausage sandwich is a must-try.

3. Buchi Cafe Cubano 2651 W 38th Ave, Denver, CO 80211 (Northwest)

This unique coffee/tea place also happens to be Cuban. For such authentic fare, it's reasonably priced and exceptionally delicious.

Vert is a new-wave American- /French-inspired hub that's doling out delicious soups and sandwiches. This is not your average deli joint.

5. Masterpiece Delicatessen 1575 Central St, Denver, CO 80211 (Uptown)

This Uptown spot has mastered the art of the sandwich. The freshness of the menu offerings here is unparalleled: from bacon to roast beef, all of the meats are cured in-house, along with all the accoutrements (aiolis, slaws, soups, even potato chips). Notorious egg salad gets a major come-up here, prepared fresh with hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, red onions, and capers, made decidedly decadent with white truffle oil and romaine on toasted locally-made bread. If there’s no available seating in the sleek, modern eatery, we suggest snagging a can of craft beer and heading outdoors to the patio, where ample sunlight and fresh air make for a great meal on the go.

6. Ba Le Sandwiches 1044 S Federal Blvd, Denver, CO 80219

A gander down South Federal can result in some great people watching and some really great, authentic Vietnamese food. Banh mi sandwiches are the perfect culmination of French and Vietnamese cuisine, and Ba Le serves up a really good one for an even better price. The combo of sweet BBQ pork covered in pickled veggies, cilantro, and spicy jalapeños has a satisfying crunch inside a miniature french loaf. All the sandwiches on the menu range from $3-$3.75, so you can stock up on a few without breaking the bank.

7. Curtis Park Delicatessen 2532 Champa St, Denver, CO 80205

The menu at this beloved neighborhood spot consists of the usual suspects, like a Reuben, an Italian, and a turkey sandwich, but what makes this place special is the personal touches, like house-made condiments and local produce. They even make their own BUTTER, which they use on the egg & prosciutto sandwich. Now that's dedication. Delicious dedication.
