A popular sandwich pop-up is primed to open in Santa Monica this year. The owners of the Popular Bread Head Sandwiches say they’re aiming for a summer launch date in the former Kye’s space on Montana near 16th Street. Former fine dining chefs and Trois Mec alums Alex Williams and Jordan Snyder started Bread Head to have a better work-life balance. Still, they had their sights on opening standalone location when the two started the pop-up back in 2021.
As with most openings, plenty of factors (namely permits and construction) will determine an exact opening date. For the time being, Bread Head Sandwiches will continue to pop up at June Shine Santa Monica.
