To call this a sandwich shop is a little misleading for an American. There are a selection of sort-of-recognisable sandwiches on foccacia as well as some open-face selections (tomato, zucchini, cheese and olive, etc) but the real attraction is the delicious foccacia fresh from the oven and the chance to have your sandwich selection toasted in that oven.

this is the best place to drop in if you're looking for a quick tasty eat in Alba. There are a few seats outside but it quickly fills up. my favourite foccacia is artichoke and cheese. there is also very good margarita pizza and variety of fresh sandwiches. 2 foccacia & 2 beers for €10 is a bargain lunch.

Great little location on Via Cavour to grab a Focaccia Sandwich or Pizza while strolling the streets of Alba. Always crowded with locals, but very friendly and great value. There is no inside seating. There are a couple of tables you can stand at outside in the street.
