Stories, Food

Feeling hungry but not fancy? How about a sandwich? Rumor has it that the food was invented in the 1700s by England’s 4th Earl of Sandwich who struggled to leave his seat at the gambling table. He demanded something he could eat with one hand in order to keep rolling dice with the other. The namesake meal became a popular one, and no wonder: sandwiches are convenient, packable, don’t require utensils, and they make a hearty meal all on their own. Here’s where to find the best sandwiches and paninis in Waynesboro.





The French Press

The French Press is known for brewing great coffee and conversation. Pick from a wide selection of delicious and beautiful coffee and tea drinks. Hungry? You’ll find something tasty on the sandwich menu like a warm and toasty grilled cheese made with your choice of cheese or a BLT and turkey on sourdough. Add a spinach salad or a cup of tomato basil soup and you’ll be ready for anything!

City Foxes

The City Foxes is Waynesboro’s new wine bar and market. Along with a glass of wine or two, you can get a crispy, melty panini served with Virginia’s own Route 11 potato chips or a side salad. We recommend the Barksdale, which is a sweet and tart creation layered with brie, slices of Granny Smith apple, and honey drizzle. Another good bet is the Veggie, a medley of peppers, tomatoes, and onions topped with gruyere and a balsamic reduction. Leave room for your new favorite dessert: pie in a jar!

Delly Up

Delly Up recently opened in downtown Waynesboro, but their sandwiches, sides, dips, and salads are already topping people’s favorites lists.  Stop in for a Main Street Ham & Brie, an updated classic mounded with sliced tavern ham, Brie cheese, and green apples. You might also like the Fresh Cuban Press, which incorporates Cuban spiced pork, ham, and Swiss and is loaded with fresh ingredients like carrots, cucumbers, and cilantro. It’s all served on local Ciabatta bread. Wash it down with something from the big beer and wine selection!

Farmhaus Coffee

You’ll want to make a habit out of visiting Farmhaus Coffee for your daily caffeine fix and maybe hanging out for a while in the welcoming atmosphere. If you’re hungry, browse the “noms” menu for flavors like avocado toast piled high with feta, tomato, red pepper, and olive oil. The sweet potato toast is made with sweet potato hash, herbed bean spread, parmesan, and pepitas. 

Green Leaf Grill

Along with its Cajun-inspired menu of appetizers and entrees, the Green Leaf Grill offers a variety of paninis and sandwiches, including their savory and satisfying house-smoked turkey panini and the popular mozzarella caprese. If you’d rather skip the panini press, try the award-winning crab cake sandwich that’s served with Southwestern coleslaw or the oyster po’ boy topped with chipotle ranch sauce.

Stella, Bella & Lucy’s

Stella, Bella & Lucy’s is a cozy cafe decorated with art and antiques that serves breakfast and lunch. Sandwich aficionados will love the Reuben, made with corned beef or turkey, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and 1000 Island on rye, or the grilled mushroom melt made with baby spinach, sweet onions, and mushrooms, with cheese on a grilled croissant.

Heritage on Main

Heritage on Main might be your go-to spot for date night in Waynesboro, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stop in for a casual lunch. Try the Cordon Bleu focaccia loaded with grilled chicken, ham, grilled onions, swiss, arugula, and roasted tomatoes. You’ll also love the Salmon & Avocado focaccia made with salmon, arugula, roasted red peppers and tomatoes, avocado, and basil pesto.

The Fishin’ Pig

The Fishin’ Pig has all kinds of barbecue on the menu. You can enjoy it on sandwiches or platters. You can also get burgers and other hot sandwiches like the fried catfish sandwich, which comes with a choice of toppings including cilantro dill remoulade and red onion. Another good bet is the Super Fly made with chicken toes, Thai chili sauce, grilled onions, coleslaw, bacon, and cheese.

Broad Street Grill

The Broad Street Grill is known for its burgers and sandwiches. Fill up on a fish sandwich or a hot fried or grilled chicken sandwich. Pile on your favorite condiments, including mushrooms, grilled onions, and jalapenos! 

The Mill Yard

There are lots of options at The Mill Yard, but they have a variety of sandwiches that will make you want to try them all. From Korean BBQ pork sliders to a beer battered cod Po' Boy or a smoked sausage sandwich, there is literally something for everyone at Waynesboro's only virtual food hall.
