Review // Duck & Decanter
I’ve been waiting to find a sandwich shop that hits the spot and Duck & Decanter does just that! If you’re looking for quality ingredients and sandwiches made with love, this is the place for you. As soon as I walked in, I was overwhelmed by the amount of fresh ingredients and specialty sandwiches. Their vibe is old school, like think a nice cozy pub during the Middle Ages with brighter lighting, and it’s definitely different from other restaurants in Phoenix. I ordered their best seller, the Vermont Treat, famous for their cheddar cheese spread. As soon as I bit into it, I was in heaven! That spread is so delectable, I wish I could put it on every single sandwich I make. I’ve spent a few summers in Vermont, and its namesake lives up to the reminiscent fresh flavors that Vermont evokes.
Some other pluses of D&D is their grocery selection, which has everything from jams and old fashioned sodas, to funny nut bags called “Nut Sacks”. There’s more than enough ample seating indoors and outdoors, and their happy hour specialties include $3 drafts and select sandwiches, too! The staff was friendly and chill, and I had a nice afternoon reading outdoors and eating my sandwich. I’ll definitely be back to try more on their menu, especially the Nooner, which I heard was delicious!
