And then there are Campanelli’s. Dreamy soft breads with EXTRA LARGE portions of anything you decide to fill them with.
A grab-and-go type of place with a few counter seats in the back, Campanelli feels likes an Italian neighborhood café with a good guy hip-hop vibe. You know, the kind of place you’d imagine Franco Nero chatting up J.Cole. The regulars add to the unique scenery; young mothers catching up between errands, coffee tyrants judging anyone ordering anything but a caffè, stretto, and puffed-jackets fellows showing up for their fix of the day.
Because here, my friend, coffee is indeed exceptional. Rich. Deep. With a crema you’d feel criminal dipping your mortal lips into.But coming back to the sandwiches, I picked the apples-soppressata-brie-sun-dried-tomatoes-honey mustard while cousin A opted for the Mortadella-capicollo-salami tower ($9.95/each). Look at these endless layers of pure happiness. Taking a few last pictures for the blog, I realized I’d missed a menu-board: the one featuring the hot sandwiches, including the famous meatballs sub! ARG! We missed the best apparently.
Well, that calls for a prompt return. Campanelli, a presto.
p.s. Debit and cash only.
