Known for their rolls and sandwiches, and more. Pizza, subs, but also I like their market. They have fresh sauce (or gravy) that is reasonably price and delicious. A wide variety of pasta's and EVOO's from italy. I just wish I lived next door.

Not a sit down restaurant but a specialty food store. Awesome St Joseph’s sandwich’s, best fresh bread, pizza, and all kinds of pastas and sauces to make at home. Perfect for putting together a picnic!
