There are a few Lou’s Cafes around SF, but their sandwich making skills are always consistent, regardless of which neighborhood you’re in. Their breakfast sandwiches are always a good call, but the ami-cado with pastrami and salami for lunch is easily one of our favorite sandwiches in the city - just make sure you add jalapeno spread.
