Description
In 1954, on the corner of Clinton and College, nestled away in the heart of Toronto's Little Italy, The Original San Francesco Foods opened its doors. It fast became known for its signature Italian Veal Sandwich within the local community. Our fame has since grown far beyond the local neighbourhood crowd, now recognized as one of Toronto's most historically-iconic "must-try" culinary experiences.
