Speedy Subs

We love Hamilton. We love people who love Hamilton. That is part of the reason we love Speedy Subs. However, we also just love their old school delicious subs.

First the food.  These are not fancy subs.  No toasting is offered and nary a glimpse of guacamole is seen. You know what?  That can be a good thing. They offer old fashioned, delicious subs on fresh bread.  There is no fancy cheese. It's the old school white stuff - and I, who disdain cheese slices as being appropriate only for wrapping up pills in when having to administer medicine to my dogs, LOVE it.  Their prices are beyond reasonable. They always have a sub of the month that is an incredible price.  In March 2014, it was a 12" turkey sub for $3.99! 

Mr. HitH got the namesake Speedy Sub, which is a mixed sub with double cheese and meat.  The offering of veggie isn't extensive, but is perfectly adequate (lettuce, tomato, onion, green pepper, black and green olives, pickles, mushrooms, cucumbers, hot peppers) and they have a few different types of mustard too.  It was yummy and satisfying and fully prepared Mr. HitH to go and spend the rest of the evening coaching soccer and playing ball hockey.

 Unfortunately, being vegetarian severely limits the options one has at a sub shop.  Fortunately, I really like veggie subs.  This one hits the mark.  There is nothing fancy or pretentious about it.  As you can see, they have a generous hand with the toppings, and while I would prefer just about any other leafy vegetable to iceburg lettuce, this is a great sub.

Beyond the food, Speedy Subs is fantastic for Concession street.  Their windows are always decorated for the season and they are huge boosters of the neighbourhood. It's just a pleasure to go in and talk with them about how the Raleigh/Eastmount neighbourhoods are developing and changing. Concession Street has a shot at being the next Locke St. type success, and places like Speedy Subs will help fuel that success.
