We are super excited about our brand new hot sandwich oven behind the Deli Counter! To celebrate its arrival, we are offering a menu of six hot and toasty sandwiches for you! Try our classic BLT on toasted local sourdough, or our cheesy Caprese with melted mozzarella, house-made pesto, fresh veggies and oil and vinegar! The Italian will fill you up, piled high with two kinds of salami and honey maple ham on local toasted ciabatta. Our Smoked Ham & Swiss comes with stone ground mustard, lettuce and tomatoes on local rye bread. Try my favorite, the Tuna Melt, which melts sharp white cheddar over our house-made tuna salad. Or have a WV Turkey Club, featuring oven-roasted turkey, crispy bacon and ripe avocado with veggies on organic wheat bread. Come on in to read the menu for all the details! We’ll be working on even more hot sandwich selections to come, but for now, just head on over and try one!
