2. Patisserie 46 4552 Grand Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55419

If you’re looking for the best sandwich, it only makes sense to hit up the best baker. For real. Chef John Kraus is known globally for his baked goods, so basically any sandwich you can get on his incredibly prepared baguettes is going to be a knock out. This place also has great sweets and ice cream.

3. Manny's Tortas 920 E Lake St, Minneapolis, MN 55407 (Powderhorn)

There are other places that do tortas well in the Twin Cities, but Manny's Special is a classic: steak, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and jalapeños are grilled together and then covered with ham and cheese. If you're looking for something more traditional try the Cubana, either way you'll leave here satisfied.

The wheat-wielders at Sun Street Breads and Fulton are teaming up next Monday, pairing four courses -- designed to take you on a culinary tour from MSP to New Orleans -- with The Libertine, Lonely Blonde, Sweet Child, and one surprise beer, also what lonely drunkards try to do after quickly swinging the fridge door open.

8. Clancey's Meats & Fish 4307 Upton Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55410

When it comes to a good roast beef, leave it to the butchers. The roast beef sandwich here comes piled with rare and juicy roast beef and you should absolutely get it with the works because the hot peppers really tie this whole sandwich together.

10. Cheeky Monkey 525 Selby Ave, Saint Paul, MN 55102 (Downtown St Paul)

This St. Paul spot not only bakes its own bread, but it also cures and smokes its own meats. That's what separates its classic Cubano -- cumin pork, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, and pickles, all covered in homemade mustard and mayo, and served on ciabata bread -- from the rest. You can also get a bistro-style dinner here.
