Very popular sandwich place, get a sandwich to go and eat on the bluffs nearby. They have single size portions of sides and chips if you are watching your weight

I have eaten lunch here 6 or more times and always had food that was a cut above in quality. Skip the chains sandwich places and do yourself a favor by eating here instead. Drinks, soup, sandwiches and chip assortment all show some extra effort by the managers. Generous portions, Quality meats, cheese, toppings and bread at fair prices. I... More

Maybe it's what I ordered, but my BLT was incredibly average and I would not order it again. They have a lot of choices, so hopefully things will be better.

I and several friends have been going to Tudor & Spunky's for over 3 years when it was owned by a fine gentleman, Tom Blake. Two other people bought it and the quality of sandwiches remained the same. Now, about 6 months ago it was obvious that somebody decided to cut quality and increase the price. The "Mercedes" pastrami large... More

Ordered a tuna melt on sourdough. When I unwrapped the sandwich, it was warm, but the bread had not been grilled or even toasted. As a result, the bread was soggy and the tuna tasteless. It's as if they put tuna and cheese between 2 pieces of bread and stuck it in the microwave. In addition, at $9.50 for just... More

Wow, I finally found this place after many years in the vicinity. Great sandwiches and friendly staff. Really fresh ingredients and generous with the meats and cheeses. Best deli sandwich in Dana Point.

Tutor just sold this wonderful sandwich shop but it is still great. My daughter used to work there because it was so much fun. Families or singles have rated it the best sandwich shop in DP for along time.

Very impressed with their food and service. Blue Lantern Inn highly recommended this place and they were right. The roast beef and ham was delicious. They have their own salad dressing which we will buy and take back home. Everything is fresh. Hours are 7am to 7pm. They serve wine as well.

Whenever we're craving a really well made, tasty, custom sandwich, Tutor & Spunky's Deli is the place. The menu is online, so peruse it before you go -- lots of options, from types of bread to cheese to toppings. It's not cheap, but it's good eats! They offer take-out, which we always do, so can't really comment on the "sit... More
