Breaking sandwich news…
Mr. Pickles Sandwich Shop in downtown Santa Rosa has rather suddenly changed to Mom & Pop’s Sandwich Shop.
“We just de-franchised,” said one of the sandwich makers by way of explanation. That means that other than a few menu changes, it’s still basically the same place.
The revamped lunchtime spot now features seven sandwiches inspired by local school mascots, including the Santa Rosa High School Mighty Panther (roast beef, olives, horseradish and Swiss cheese); Newman Cardinal (turkey, cranberry sauce and mozzarella), Little Lobo (turkey, bacon, avocado and cream cheese) and J.C. Helicopter (pastrami, bacon, pepper, jack and Swiss).
The restaurant also has hot dogs and corn dogs, along with an a la carte sandwich menu. And if you’re craving one of the old Mr. Pickles sandwiches (like the Hot T), they can probably still make it for you — they’ll just have to call it something else. Starting at 10am you can also get breakfast ‘wiches. Oh, and yes, you still get a free a cookie.
