The meatball sandwich at this Pike Place Market lunch counter is served on fresh-made garlic toast. On top of that, they stack tender, juicy meatballs that fall apart in your mouth like candy. Then it’s covered in marinara sauce that’s garlicky and fresh and not too thick. It’s served open-faced, and if you tried to somehow get this thing into your mouth with just your hands, it would wind up looking like the Civil War happened on your face. For $8.50, it’s lunch with leftovers, and hands down the best meatball sandwich in Seattle. (LoPriore Bros., 1530 Post Alley, 621-7545, 11 am–5 pm, $8.50)
