Café Mims, Café Mims is the latest spot to capitalize on the need for speedy lunchtime fare. The food, overseen by Livingston's executive chef Gary Mennie, is made fresh daily and pre-packaged so you can grab and go. The cafe opens early so you can pop in for some coffee and one of the homemade baked goods, such as the trio of mini bear claws filled with blueberries, cheese and almond paste. Sandwiches are the best thing the cafe has to offer at lunchtime. B, L, D. $. 659 Peachtree St. 404-897-5000.

Fabiano's Italian Deli, There's much to love at this Midtown deli, but you can't do any better than the #1. A double fister of a sandwich, the #1 is a daunting stack of prosciutto, capicola and pepperoni with provolone or fresh mozzerella and paper-thin tomato slices. L, D $ 985 Monroe Drive. 404-875-0500.

The Kosher Gourmet, The Kosher Gourmet, where the selection is large and the options are plentiful, serves as a supermarket, bakery and deli specializing in glatt-kosher meats under the supervision of the Atlanta Kashruth Commission. Here you can find anything from challah and bagels to gefilte fish and chicken so good even your bubbie would shep nachus. B, L $-$$. 2153 Briarcliff Road. 404-636-1114.

Mercantile, A specialty foods store in Candler Park that welcomes popping in for a roasted chicken or a crusty baguette. Sundries include an impressive assortment of teas, bags of Carolina Gold rice and an interesting variety of beverages, but the real treasures are the indispensable homemade stocks and mother sauces. Also sandwiches and sweet treats - wine sales sometime in 2009. L $$ 1660 DeKalb Aveue, Suite 150. 404-378-0096.

Metrofresh, Mitchell Anderson opened MetroFresh after a stint at Souper Jenny's in Buckhead. Here, you'll find hearty soups and sandwiches, along with salads, pastas and a few more complicated entrees from time to time. A couple of specials are posted daily. You can eat in, but the food is ideal for carry-out since it's simple. L, D $ 931 Monroe Drive, Suite A106. 404-724-0155.

Muss & Turner's, ***** The perennial complaint of New York transplants was the lack of a good deli in the Atlanta area. Todd Mussman and Ryan Turner changed that when they opened their unique store: part gourmet grocery, part sandwich shop, part cooking school, part neighborhood bistro. Since the restaurant began serving dinner, it's revealed an entirely new side of itself. Weeknights, the restaurant feels cozy and intimate. Weekends, the place turns into a scene that feels energizing to be a part of. Chicken liver mousse, beef tartar, standout desserts from the pastry case and an exceptional beer list may prove that dinner here is just what your hungry soul needs. Winner of Best Sandwiches 2009. L, D $$ 1675 Cumberland Parkway, Suite 309, Smyrna. 770-434-1114.

Noon Midtown, Noon's decision to serve only breakfast and lunch seems to be working in its favor judging by how packed the surprisingly large dining room has been. Sandwiches -- both "cool" and "warm" -- dominate the lunch menu, although a handful of salads, soups and sides are also available. Pole-caught tuna salad is not your average mayo, celery and canned tuna concoction. Instead, the diced pieces of potato, chopped Nicoise olives, perfectly crunchy greens beans, red onion, olive oil and lemon are more of a deconstructed Nicoise salad on soft country bread. B, L. $. 1080 Peachtree St. 404-496-4891.

Sawicki's Meat, Seafood & More, Sawicki's sells gourmet meats and baked goods but the main draw here is the sandwich menu with 10 selections and a few daily specials. The roasted lamb sandwich with red-onion jam is juicy, embracing the meat's fatty, gamey goodness. There are also meatless approaches such as the artichoke and spinach with avocado and tomato tartine. For your sweet tooth there is a large range of cookies, breakfast pastries, brownies and scrumptious cupcakes. You can also find everything you need for that picnic in the park. L, D $ 250 West Ponce De Leon Avenue, Decatur. 404-377-0992.

Star Provisions, The take out menu varies slightly each day, but count on seductively constructed sandwiches such as homemade meatball hoagies with buffalo mozzarella; freshly made pizzas; family-size containers of mac-and-cheese; and entrees such as grouper escabeche and beef tenderloin with salsa verde. The jewel-like desserts, including the loveliest cookies in town, are meant for savoring not gobbling. L, D $ 1198 Howell Mill Road. 404-365-0410.
