Deep inside the very strange Malibu Country Mart “lifestyle mall” sits this low-key, order-at-the-counter sandwich shop. John’s has been making no-frills deli sandwiches at dirt cheap prices ($6 - $8) for a while now, and though it’s built quite a following, you never have to wait too long to get your food. This is the best quick lunch spot along the Malibu coast.
