Plenty of people regularly ate sandwiches as kids. But Miles Matthews found a way not only to elevate your childhood favorites such as PB&J and grilled cheese but to turn it into a business. He along with Rebecca Matthews and Jamie Pleta just opened Finches Sandwiches & Sundries at 2600 Mechanics Avenue in Thunderbolt. As of now, grilled cheese may be the crowd favorite but they also have vegan and vegetarian options, hot breakfast sandwiches and Rebecca’s daily go-to the ‘nanners and granola which is healthy and perfect for on the go. Jamie encourages you to try the “skinny Italian with attitude” which is thinly sliced pork belly porchetta with a smokey broth. It seems you can’t go wrong with any of these menu items as “Good, food on the fly!” is there motto and so far their authenticity as a team is allowing them to do just that. Each brings their own unique hospitality background to Finches and together they have created something that the Savannah community will certainly enjoy and embrace.
Patrons can order inside or from a takeout window with an option to sit outside or hit the road as all food is packaged to go. They currently have business hours of Tues.-Fri. from 7am-2pm and Sat.- Sun. 9am-5pm. However, they plan to extend afternoon hours when the beach goers return. Also, don’t forget the beer & wine, hard ciders, spiked cold brews, hard seltzers and canned spritzes.
We are excited to welcome another fabulous team to the Savannah restaurant scene and in true Scout fashion we asked, “Please advise what you believe is the perfect order from Finches?” Rebecca replied, “We offer many of our sandwiches in half sizes, which is meant to be taken advantage of. A half of our braised chicken sandwich and a half of the grilled eggplant sandwich, with a side of Finches onion dip would be a solid start.” “If you are headed for an afternoon adventure, Porch Pounder canned wines are a breeze to pack in the cooler and drink nicely alongside both these sandwiches.” Stop by Finches grab a mouth-watering sandwich and a brew and sit out back around the fire pit…does it really get any better than that?
