We think that one of the world’s greatest creations is the sandwich, or sammich or sangerich. However you want to pronounce it, we think sandwiches are great! But it doesn’t end there, we also like to craft our own thin crust pizzas, toss some great salads and borrow recipes from a few other cultures to keep things interesting. It should also be known that we have some of the best culinary talent in our kitchen of all the kitchens in Peterborough, so keep an eye out for specials and don’t forget we are open for breakfast on weekends.
