Machine Coffee and Deli

Pin It Now!

The first time I walked by Machine Coffee & Deli I did a double take.  This small, quaint coffee shop that serves Four Barrel coffee is located in one of the most dangerous areas of the city.  Even with Pearl's burger (see post HERE) across the street and Dottie's new location down the street, I'm still surprised a place like this exists here, although it reminds me of the first days of Blue Bottle.
The prices for the sandwiches are pretty high considering the area.  You can either eat there or take your sandwich to go.  Considering the sketchy neighborhood, I prefer the later.  Same goes for the coffee.  It's not exactly the most relaxing place to enjoy a sandwich and a coffee.

The Crankshaft sandwich is a tuna salad with melted cheese on toasted bread.  There wasn't as much mayo as a regular tuna salad sandwich so that led to a lighter tasting sandwich.  I'm no stranger to happily scouting out food in ghetto neighborhoods, but this sandwich is not worth it.
