Popular lunch time spot for the locals that know (and catering is popular too). They deliver to the downtown area but it's just as nice to sit inside in this tucked away space that is easily overlooked. It's close to US Cellular Center and within...More

My wife and I wanted a bite to eat. Living downtown, we eat at Roman's for fresh, delicious sandwiches and freshly baked cookies. A great place where locals eat. You should too!

My wife and I ate here for lunch during our trip to Asheville. We both had a chicken caprese sandwich. The ingredients were very fresh and the service was great. We would highly recommend this as a lunch spot.

We enjoyed eating at this place, I had the Cuban Sandwich and it was great. Everything is fresh. The drink selection is somewhat limited to Tea and or a few bottled sodas but if you are on a diet the only selection is unsweetened tea.

Yes we do carry gluten-free bread which allows you to enjoy our entire menu. We also make all of our salad dressing in house and they are all gluten free.
