Montara, a sleepy little coast-side town, where I have lived for basically my whole life. It has struggled to maintain good, local friendly eateries. Gherkins is the exception. It has (moderately) priced sandwiches and salads that are named after local landmarks. It's the thing that...More

My boyfriend and I came her for the first time in September. We had the breakfast sandwhich and fell in love with it. The "backseat driver" is so filling and delicious it is the best way to start your morning!

We've been to Gherkin's a few times - a great and easy stop if you are in the area. Sandwiches are huge so sharing is easy to do. Friendly employees, well worth a stop

Mediocre sandwich. Didn't have any interesting sauces which is why you buy a sandwich instead of making your own. Toasted my sandwich with the tomato and lettuce in it, ew! Plus it wasn't crunchy, must have been put in the microwave.

Sandwiches at Gherkin's are HUGE. I think one could feed a family of four. The possible combinations are dazzling in their variety and all ingredients are first class. Eat in or take it to the beach across the street.

My wife and I found this place on our drive up the coast. We ordered two sandwiches. They were quite huge. The fish sandwich was good and her turkey was excellent. The hush puppies came piping hot out of the deep fryer.
