Great Bread

Great Bread! There are a few old world Italian bakers in South Philly. This is one of them. You cannot beat an Italian Deli hoagie when using their bread.

Sarcones has the best bread and rolls in philly and surrounding areas!!! Their hoagies are large, stuffed with fillings and absolutely awesome. There are a lot of places to choose hoagies from in philly but I think Sarcones is hands down the best place. We moved to Florida where none of the hoagies or bread is even close to Sarcones...

The prices are good for the quality of deli meat you are getting. The medium sandwiches range$7-$10 and they are big enough for two people to share.

The quality of the bread used for an Italian hoagie is half of the secret, and the fact that Sarcone's started as an Italian bakery (just down the street -- where it continues to bake outstanding rolls), and some other delis in the area which use Sarcone's breads boast of the fact should tell you something. Rounding out their winning... More

First of all, this is NOT my first time eating here but after visiting family in Philly, I made sure that this was one of my stops to eat. Sarcone's uses the freshest meats and toppings. However, if you're a hoagie (yes, we call them hoagies up here in the north and not subs LOL), then you should know that... More

If you're in the Philadelphia area, make sure you stop into Sarcone's Deli for lunch and/or a mid-day snack. Nestled in the historic Italian section in South Philly, this deli is sure to please your taste buds. Their classic and unique array of choices (all served on the delicious Sarcone's bread) can be a little overwhelming at first, but that... More

Lots of choices. The Italian was really good. Best to call ahead and order if you are placing a large order. Not the best hoagie but definitely not the worst.

Sarcone's provides great rolls for some of the best cheese steak and sub shops in town which in itself is a tremendous compliment in this city of bakeries. The food is superb.

Our visit to Sarcone's made me nostalgic for my childhood Saturday trips to the Italian deli. We were greeted by the smell of fresh bread and friendly banter on both sides of the counter. My sandwich - the junkyard - has appropriately been honored as a Food Network "best thing I ever ate". The Italian hoagie and veggie were equally... More

I have been here five or more times and love their sandwiches.. One time the bakery was closed and they sold me some bread... That was very nice of them.. Service is fast also.. I can't wait to go back..
