Folks here in the Valley might not experience a true winter chill, but that doesn't mean we don't like to snuggle up with a hearty sandwich and a comforting bowl of soup when we need that extra bit of warmth in our souls.

Here are 10 of our favorites places to get both. Stop by one and curl up with some satisfying eats.

Essence Bakery Cafe
This low-key Tempe eatery may be best known for Eugenia Theodosopoulos' luscious French macaróns, but its chef/owner boasts a top-notch sandwich and soup menu as well. Don't miss daily combo specials like a chicken, cornichons, and grain mustard sandwich with smokey ham and split pea soup or a tuna melt with cheddar cheese and cucumber served with a cup of organic yam with a touch of cream.

Postino Winecafe
Sure, the casual-cool Postino's (with three Valley locations) is good to go for vino and bruschetta, but it does a fine job with sandwiches and soup-of-the-moment offerings, too. Don't miss the Select Two special ($9.75), in which half a panini sandwich (think a veggie with white bean hummus or The Nine Iron with bacon and grilled chicken) can be had with a fresh-made soup like cheddar potato, tomato, and roasted pepper and Gorgonzola.

DeFalcosSandwichforList.jpg
DeFalco's
At this first-rate Italian deli and grocery in Scottsdale, you're not just eating the ingredients; chances are you're sitting right next to them. Choose from about 40 kinds of monstrous hot or cold sandwiches made with top-notch ingredients. A soup of the day ($4.25/bowl) comes with hot focaccia bread and might be anything from minestrone to Italian wedding soup.

While I've enjoyed almost everything I've had at Maizies, my suggestion is go with a friend and split a pizza and the Spinach Salad with Salmon.
