The verdict

Woolloomooloo sandwich joint John Montagu is named after the 4th Earl of Sandwich, who is said to have created the café menu staple, and these are indeed royal-sized sangas with lashings of the finest produce. The menu changes regularly, usually until a filling sells out (a sign of the freshness of the ingredients), so expect everything from sweet pork and smoked ham with rocket and relish, to braised beef cheek with melted cheddar. There's also great coffee, unique sodas (elderflower and mint, for example) and breakfast plates for those not in a rush.
