Get off the subway and quit picking your quiz-nose. Here's a deli that isn't affiliated with a national chain and sources most of their ingredients locally.

Boars Head meats, cheeses and condiments along with vegetables from Uncle Paul's Produce right down the street. Have it cold, get it toasted. It's all good here and your money gets recycled into the local economy!

If you're like me and don't really get your act together enough to make it to breakfast ...in the morning, fear not. Sckavone's serves theirs until 2pm (perfect). Breakfast is of course only one of their offerings, a whole range of comfort-food choices can be yours like pasta, fish n' chips, burgers etc. And there is a smaller, late-night menu available for um,... dinner. Plop your ass in a big comfy booth or at a stool at the soda fountain where where they'll serve you a rootbeer float, a malted or even better, a beer!

Lunch consists of burgers, sandwiches, salads and a plethora of sides. they use mostly local and sustainable ingredients and use compostable or recycled containers, so you can take something to go guilt-free.
