You may have plenty of choices for a gourmet-style lunch while in Calistoga, but there’s really just one destination for the best in specialty sandwiches.
There is something about a fresh-made deli-style sandwich that appeals to the taste buds that can’t quite be matched. And the specialty sandwiches we offer here at Cal Mart’s delicatessen will certainly tantalize yours.
While a sandwich paired with a fine, local wine or craft beer is a combination that can’t be beat, we can also complement your meal with one of our signature salads and even fresh fruit. And there are plenty of scenic spots through Napa Valley – or right here in Calistoga – sit and enjoy your meal.
In fact, you can have the folks in our deli prepare a box lunch for something especially memorable to enjoy at your final lunch destination.
Whether you end up at a park under some magnificent oaks or pausing at one of Calistoga’s world famous wineries in Napa Valley, you’re bound to find plenty of enchanting spots to have an impromptu picnic. With a decorative box containing your fresh made specialty sandwich, a refreshing salad, and a delightful serving of fresh, organic fruit, your wine country lunch is complete.
Of course, there’s going to be a bit for dessert as you finish your lunch – perhaps a house-baked cookie – and you’ve got all the makings of a perfect lunch on a sunny, Napa Valley day.
5 Specialty Sandwiches from the Cal Mart Deli to Suit Your Tastes
Our extensive signature sandwich and grilled panini menu is headlined by our specialty sandwiches and we’ve highlighted five of them here.
1. Cal Mart Tri-Tip
Few things say “California” like tri-tip. In fact, in many other locales throughout the U.S. it is often referred to as a “California Cut” by meat cutters. And few sandwiches say, “Napa Valley” like one of our Cal Mart Tri-Tip specialty sandwiches.
Using our house-made tri-tip along with Toscano salami, cheddar cheese, red onion, tomato, and lettuce, we finish it with mayonnaise and BBQ sauce. Oh – and you get the option of adding a horseradish spread on your choice of bread to complete this masterpiece.
2. Cal Mart Porchetta
For those possibly unfamiliar with this Italian favorite, porchetta, which means “little pig” in Italian, is a slow-roasted pork belly roll, pork loin, or whole pig, with the rind always included. A traditional recipe requires butterflying the pork, stuffing it with herbs, rolling and tightly securing it with butcher twine, and slow-roasting it to perfection.
Our house-made porchetta is dressed with grilled onions and Arugula, a spread of pesto aioli, and served up on a Dutch Crunch roll.
3. Cal Mart Club
The Club, or clubhouse, sandwich is a classic and is possibly one of the most iconic “grown-up” sandwiches out there. And the Cal Mart Club is true to the traditions of a classic clubhouse sandwich recipe.
We feature house-roasted turkey breast, bacon, and Havarti cheese topped with lettuce, tomato and lightly dressed with Ranch dressing. And all on your choice of one of our fine bread.
4. Cal Mart Muffuletta
A whiff of New Orleans with a definite Sicilian bent, the muffuletta was said by some to have been created in a New Orleans grocery in 1906 by delicatessen owner and Sicilian immigrant Salvatore Lupo.
Our traditional-style muffuletta sandwich consists of ciabatta split horizontally and covered with layers of Tuscano salami, Cal Mart ham, provolone, and mortadella, all dressed to perfection with our sub dressing and tapenade.
5. Pork Loin Sandwich
A perennial favorite featuring pork loin, the leanest and most tender of pork cuts. Our signature pork loin sandwich is a gourmet delight with our house-roasted pork loin, swiss cheese, roasted red peppers and balanced with baby spinach.
A spread of Dijon on your choice of one of our premium deli bread and you have a memorable meal between two slices of fresh bread.
