Our family started and ended a 2-wk tour of Northern CA in Sacramento. We discovered Pennisi's Deli on a Saturday and ate our lunch there. The store is great, offering a variety of snacks and OH YUM, we all enjoyed the sandwiches we ordered immensely!...More

What can I say? If you want a decent sandwich at a fair price, go here. I did . . . twice in one day.

My colleagues and I visited Pennisi's for breakfast on our 1st morning in Sacramento and ended up coming back 3 times that week. We had a breakfast sandwich on a bagel and coffee/juice. It was delicious. :)
