We are in Salem every summer and never miss periwinkles. They make the best, largest sandwiches. I recommend the tuna fish or chicken salad. Their breads are delicious. This summer we made a large order of ten sandwiches with specific desires for each one and they made them perfectly. Staff is friendly. Highly recommend! Perfect to take on a picnic.

I have catered two parties using Periwinkles and have been very pleased with the quality of the food. My guests also raved about the food, especially the goat cheese, baby spinach and strawberry salad and the mac and cheese. The staff is helpful in their suggestions. I highly recommend their catering services.
