Re:Columbus Bakery in Syracuse to Add Deli, Start Serving Sandwiches
I had a very nice Boars Head roast beef and provolone sandwich on Columbus bread Tuesday. I will return again in a few weeks...I think they still have to really establish their deli in their minds. They have coolers with drinks, sauces (for the pizza dough you get next door), and cheeses. They also have barrels of olives and big hunks of cheese for bulk sales
The sandwich counter was apparently devastated by the weekend opening traffic (which is good for them ) as their Italian cuts were all gone, salami, cappoccolo, etc..They also weren't carrying lettuce and tomato, I heard several customers ahead of me asking for it, and telling them to have it the next time.
They obviously had a lot of support at their opening, and lets face it, the combination of Boars Head products and fresh Columbus bread is hard to beat. I'll be back to see if they pick-up the effort a bit more...
