Sarcone’s Deli

Sarcone's Deli

Saturday afternoon, Roz, Scott and I decided we hadn’t seen enough of each other Thursday and Friday at BlogPhiladelphia and so met up to get lunch at Sarcone’s Deli (9th and Fitzwater). I’ve eaten my fair share of bread at Sarcone’s bakery down the street (as well as their awesome doughy-in-a-good-way pizza) but I wasn’t really aware that the deli even existed, until Roz mentioned it as an option.

Walking in, it’s a fairly funky shop, with a xeroxed menus taped to the display case, a dry-erase board of specials and enough dust to make you seriously question touching anything. However, the space was not indicative of the quality of the sandwiches. Made on Sarcone’s famous bread (the medium comes on the seeded loaf) they were huge and delicious. I got the Junk Yard, which was a gorgeous, messy combination of turkey, proscuitto, fresh mozzarella, provolone and spinach. I don’t remember what the others got, but I know Scott’s sandwich was bursting with pepperoni, and Roz’s had more eggplant than was possible to eat in one sitting. Really good stuff.

    Hey Marisa,

    Have you checked out the new Andro’s Sweets and Treats on 21st and Pine yet? Formerly of RTM, they have snacks and ice-cream and fresh-baked bread.

    Very tasty, and brand new.

    I haven’t gotten there yet, but now that I know it exists, I will definitely make a point of getting over there.

    Thanks for the tip!

    I am eating a Sarcone’s hoagie right now. Sarcone’s is awesome but you better order early during football season. There are also two new Sarcones (franchises) in Cherry Hill.
