At this point, it’s safe to say Highland Park has the sandwich-counter-in-the-back-of-a-convenience-store concept on lockdown. Located inside the La Tropicana Market, Monte 52 is a tiny sandwich shop/deli that’s serving everything from gourmet fried chicken sandwiches to housemade pickles to a breakfast burrito we can’t stop thinking about. That said, the best sandwich for us is the Cuban - cheesy, ham-stuffed goodness that’s large enough to last you through the entire afternoon. If you’re on a budget, no sandwich at Monte 52 is over $10.
