Bakery is wonderful

Fresh, tasty, and addictive. Pace yourself! Owners and workers polite even when packed especially at lunch. Call ahead to have it done when you get there.

Virgilios is great if you order the St Joseph's sandwich. After that is just a great roll with Italian cold cuts. Nothing special

No seating in the building but we went right to the near by water front. Tons of sandwiches and lunch options to choose from. More Italian and local favorites. Nice friendly staff, especially us out of towners, not knowing what to order. Lots of Italian favorite! Huge sandwiches! Great food!!

This place must be a great bakery. The annual lobster bake at the maritime center included their rolls on the menu. When we were there, there was a line to get bread. We just had cookies to go and they were delicious. Must try their bread next time we go.

This is a wonderful sandwich shop, super fresh thoughtful ingredients. They have exceptional bread and delicious condiments on the sandwich like olive salad and roasted peppers, fresh oregano, evoo etc. The nor'easter is a vegetarian sub and we LOVE it! My son loves the St. Joseph's. Reasonably priced, fresh and delicious. The place is always packed and they deserve it.... More
