This place is presumably named after the South American city and not the bean, though it's hard to detect much Peruvian influence. Instead, there are an abundance of intricately conceived sandwiches, some hot, some cold. Specials included, your choices often run to two dozen or more, and you can invent sandwiches on the spot using the same ingredients. Can a place so accommodating be good? Yes, it often is, especially when it comes to pressed panini-type sandwiches. Named after a cigar, El Tiante is a variation on the Cuban sandwich featuring mortadella, shredded pork, pickles, Swiss cheese, and chipotle mayo, and it's damn good. Vegetarian options abound, but sometimes Papa forgets to stock certain key ingredients.
