If you’re visiting Walt Disney World in Florida and looking for a quick and tasty meal, check out Earl of Sandwich! Located in the Marketplace area of Downtown Disney, Earl of Sandwich offers a wide variety of inexpensive gourmet sandwiches, soups, salads and tasty desserts.
Their website tells the story of the history of the sandwich: “In 1762, John Montagu, the fourth Earl of Sandwich, had his hands full, literally. As First Sea Lord, he commanded the mighty British Navy, was a noted explorer, and also a dedicated gambler with a love of day long card games. This led to little time for food, so he came up with the ingenious idea (some say at the card table) of putting meat between two slices of bread. From then on it did not matter if you were fighting a great sea battle or laying down a Royal Flush, you could eat great food without too much fuss. Thus in 1762, the sandwich was named after its inventor, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich. Now 250 years later, the current 11th Earl and the Sandwich family remain passionate about the world’s most popular quick food that carries their name and have developed the sandwich everyone has been waiting for… THE WORLD’S GREATEST HOT SANDWICH®”
Earl of Sandwich is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some highlights from the menu include my personal favorite, the All American – roast turkey, cheddar cheese, cranberries, lettuce, tomatoes and a special buttermilk ranch dressing. They also offer a special holiday sandwich that’s very popular, the Holiday Turkey – turkey, stuffing, gravy, cranberries and seasoned mayonnaise. It’s quite messy, yet quite tasty! All sandwiches are made with fresh-baked Artisan bread. The salads are large and easily split as are the dessert offerings.
You will most likely find a long line when entering the restaurant but don’t dismay! Although sandwiches are made-to-order, the line moves quickly. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.
