Got the Italian Trio - excellent sandwich in all respects but the cheese. When they asked me if I wanted "provelle" or pepper jack I did a double take. "What is this 'provelle'?" I asked myself. Had I misheard? Did the sandwich artist mispronounce "provolone"?...More

I was in town for a week and discovered by accident, was very happy I did. I returned for lunch a few days later. Service is friendly, food is delicious. I had different sandwiches on each visit and enjoyed them both.

I travel a lot and have eaten at every restaurant fine dining establishment. For lunch, you just want a sandwich sometimes and it didn't disappoint. Service was fast friendly asked the girls what was famous and did what they told me.

No. This is an Italian deli. They never met bread they didn't like! they do have white and wheat and might have some other varieties. Their wheat is the best.
