This is probably the best Deli in town.
I make a trip to Garden Liquors for a gluten free sandwich at least once a week. Even though there is always a stuipidly long line at lunch time it is still worth the wait, although realistically, I usually wait til 2:30 or 3:00 to eat lunch when I am in the mood for a sandwich just to avoid the lines.
If you can eat it, I recommend their sliced sourdough bread, I have very fond memories of it from when I was a kid, before my gluten allergy kicked into full swing. And if you can’t eat it, their gluten free bread is just fine. Just make sure you tell them that you have a gluten allergy so they don’t cross contaminate you (or your sandwich).
You can find them close to Dominican on Soquel.
