The East Side got a much-needed Italian sandwich shop with La Matta, located at Fifth and Comal. You can expect excellent sandwiches topped with things like prosciutto, mortadella, and sopressata, but they also serve charcuterie boards, salads, and homemade burrata and mozzarella. It’s a great option for quick weekday takeout or for enjoying some wine, meat, and cheese on the patio, and if you’re in need of a quick cup of coffee, they do that too.
