Portofino Deli Cafe

Sometimes all you want is a sandwich. But not just two limp slices of bread slapped on either side of a meager slither of tasteless meat. You're craving thick slabs of succulent Boar's Head meat — turkey, ham, salami, pastrami, or juicy roast beef — piled atop your favorite choice of loaf, saddled by your usual fillings, added just the way you like, and toasted — or not — for that extra crunch factor. And you want cheese, but you hunger for strange, rare, exotic even, French and Italian cheeses. And maybe you feel like a creamy, hazelnut-banana cappuccino with which to wash down your mouth-watering creation. Just a hunch, but most sandwich shops would probably raise an eyebrow and mutter something about "white or wheat." Not Portofino, they'll simply nod, and smile. Should you wish, you can even recreate your designs in the comfort of your own home - take home all the cheese your heart, and wallet, can handle straight from the shelves of their well-stocked refrigerators.
